This is our homemade solution for controlling humidity during storage. An old lid with holes punched fits inside an old 2gal bucket.The perforated lid sits about 1/2 way down the bucket. We pour IceMelt on top. Humidity is collected in the bottom of the bucket. IceMelt from Walmart. Much cheaper than purchasing DryEze or a similar product. We check once every month or two for a refill.

Seriously clever! A headlamp around a gallon of water = ambient light for your tent and a great night lamp when the power is out.

DIY camp stove/heat source from tuna can + cardboard + oil. I made this using wax and a wick. Very handy when power went off in the middle of cooking burgers for supper. I tried to make another one later with a nylon wick, that was a total fail. :/
