Parasheet Beach Blanket 

Awesome Tailgate Gear

Referred to as the “best beach blanket ever” this lightweight parasheet beach blanket is great for any outing. Lightweight and durable, the blanket folds up into its own attached carrying case, and each of the corners have stake loops and sand pockets in order to weigh it down. Just fill the pockets with sand when at the beach to keep the blanket in place or stake it down if you are lounging in the grass. It cleans up easily and folds up quickly. No need to haul around a bulky blanket for your outings, Grand Trunk has you covered.

  1. I like everything I see in this post. The best for me are those swings. Awesome! The grill looks great too. Just the right size to ensure portability.

  2. Is it okay to admit that I like football mainly for the tailgating? It’s so fun to get together with friends and family each week and cheer. Cheer who? Not really sure, but there are snacks so I’m good.
