I’m a thirsty boy. As such, I carry at the least one water bottle just about in every single place I am going. My trusty 32-ounce Nalgene is a mainstay for terrestrial travels, usually offering most of my hydration wants for a single sitting. The difficulty is, few cupholders can accommodate its girth. Quite than accept a lesser vessel, the Nalgene will experience shotgun or in a large, open storage bin. That’s lower than ideally suited, particularly once I’ve crammed it up from my SodaStream — the bubbles go flat if the bottle is knocking round or falling over. So once I discover a car with cupholders or door molds that may securely maintain my Nalgene, it’s cause for celebration.
When the 2023 Toyota 4Runner fortieth Anniversary Version arrived in my driveway, I used to be excited concerning the decals, however a bit of bummed, if unsurprised, that my Nalgene didn’t match within the cupholders or door pockets. However after wanting a bit of extra intently on the cupholders, I observed the textual content “Take away for bigger cups.” Certain sufficient, the rubber cupholder liners pulled out, increasing their capability. It could be shut …
Success! Now I may hydrate to my coronary heart’s content material. However what concerning the backseat passengers?
As long as the rear wasn’t loaded three throughout, they may carry their Nalgenes alongside, too. Assuming everyone seems to be utilizing the usual 32-ounce bottle, that’s a gallon shared amongst 4 associates — sufficient to final till the primary cease on the street journey. Now I simply must discover a spot to retailer the cupholder liners.
