When you go to the shower while campin and you prefer to use a bar of soap, just take a extra knee-hi panty hose with you and it will be just like having a soap-on-a-rope. Also make sure to take a clothes hanger and plastic bag with you to the shower, as most shower stalls have no place to hang your clothes. Just put the hanger on the shower bar and put your old clothes in the plastic bag while showering.

good idea, SC.

here's one, always keep paper towels handy at the camp site by tying a piece of parachute cords between a couple of the guy out eyelets and string a roll on it. instant holder. i also use the same setup for TP in a camp toilet setup. i don't know about y'all but i go through paper towels like they are going out of style.

That pantyhose Idea is not a bad one.

I hate the looks you get when you go to the register w/soap-on-a-rope.
For that matter, even just soap, and a 20 foot piece of rope..........

Am I the only one w/ that problem? :smile:

Photocopy all your travel arrangements and leave them with a friend or relative so that they can reach you at any point along your journey in case of an emergency. This is also important if someone needs to find you in case you do not show back up on time, will help greatly in the event rescuers need to try and find you.

Tent repairs can be made with a little nail polish on small holes in your tent and ripstop repair tape will fix up any small tears you may get along the way. :thumbsup:

Duct Tape is a MUST for all camping/hunting trips! :thumbsup:

No Joke, That stuff is a life saver!

Ive even made a survival shelter using it. I used it to LASH trees horizontally to standing trees to make a frame for the roof....

Point being it is as usefull as your imagination (or tackyness, in my case) :smile:

Wow...the things you find when you go outside the HH. A fews bails of hay
are great to put under your tent and around it. If it rains, it helps with the mud to. A kitchen sponge works great for soaping up and rinsing off in a near by creek.

I had to mention, gaffers tape also does well in place of duct tape. granted it costs about twice and even three times as much, but for repairing tarps, tents and other fabrics it seems to hold up a lil better. Plus it has a matte finish, so there is no glare. This could be a ARN moment, but I made a wallet out of it in highschool and gave it to a friend. 8 yrs later he still uses it.

on cold nights the best way i have found to stoke a fire is using an electric air pump. i have 4 D cell pump that i use to blow up air matresses for the kids and that thing will really get a fire roaring. you can also use it to quickly ressurect a fire from a bed of coals in the morning.

Another way to stoke a fire if you do not have of a set of bellows, is by placing your thumb and pointer finger as if you were pinching a piece of paper. Do this with both hands, and put each pointer finger and thumb against the other. This will create the shape of a diamond. Place thumbs and fingers over your mouth and blow onto the coals. This focuses the air onto a smaller area, making your breath more effective.

I know there probably aren't that maney left but if have an outhouse.Put some ashes from your fire in it everyday and that will stop the smell. I also use old tent poles to make lantern holders. The lantern will give off a lot more light if it is about 5 feet from the ground.

If your camping in a really cold place, dont get a sleeping bag so hot where youll sweat in it. The sweat can actually freeze and make it worse.
