To keep hot water handy for use around camp: *Fill several zip-seal plastic bags with water and place them inside a black plastic garbage bag. *Lay the bag in direct sunlight on smooth ground. Make sure there are no sharp sticks or stones beneath the bags that could puncture them. *In just a few hours, the water in the zip-seal bags will be hot. *Carefully remove a bag from the garbage sack (you might need gloves to hold it), unzip one corner and pour the hot water where you need it.

Cotton swabs dipped in wax become instant campfire starters. Lightweight. Great for backpackers.

Carry seasonings in a straw when you go camping. Heat one end of the straw with a lighter and crimp it shut, fill with seasoning, and repeat heating process on other end. What a great idea!

The AeroBed PakMat Sleep System rolls right up and fits in a plastic container… that also happens to be the pump used to inflate it! Great idea.

Ultra-Lightweight Backpacking Spice Kit! An m tube could work, but this altoid case is ingenius! YAY!

Getting ice is always a problem or inconvenience. This will show you how to make Polar Bear tubes for your cooler.
