Camping Hacks, Tips and Tricks
Camping? Going to the great outdoors. Whether you are an expert camper or a novice, like me, anyone can use a little camping hacks, tips and tricks. Learn the best way to store eggs, see how to keep that toilet paper dry, or see how much light expands when you create a lantern out of a gallon jug (no cutting required!) You might love these tips so much you are taking some of them to the home, beach or your next picnic.
