Those of us who fish know how annoying it is to store your rod only to go back to it later and find it distorted or with a broken tip. Our next hack will save you the frustration and make your next camping weekend carefree. It’s the small things in life that can make your time in the outdoors either a success or a failure.
But we’ll have you know that pool noodles are the cure, once again! All you need to do is cut through the middle of a pool noodle, carefully slide it over the rod of your fishing pole, and voila! A fishing pole protector, reporting for duty. How awesome is that?
Nothing beats summer fishing while camping, and if you ever wanted to know a fisherman's big secret, look no further; you've come to the right place and at the right time. Many fishers have shared their secret to baiting fish with great success. This may come as somewhat of a surprise to you, but our handy product is the trick.
These fishermen claim that spraying fishing lures with WD-40 attracts more fish. We're not going to knock it till we try it! We have heard that after adopting this hack, camping will never look the same, and who doesn't look for improvements when we're out in the wild?
Pockets Full of Storage
When it comes to bringing all of your possessions to your camping trip, being smart about storage makes all the difference. One way to ensure that you have room for all your small items is by traveling with cargo pants or a jacket with many pockets. You'll be surprised by how many useless things you can get in them.
Cargo pants offer tons of storage for small items like socks or other things, leaving room for other important items in your carry-on or backpack. Scared of looking like a stereotypical tourist? Ditch the traditional khaki cargo and wear a pair of black discrete ones.
Stop Spills While on the Go
People who want to take their best makeup, favorite shampoo, or other liquids with them on a camping trip (don't ask us why) are aware that could mean messy spills. Try as they might, bottle manufacturers have been unable to make completely infallible openings, and there are few things worse than opening your bag to find a big mess.
Once again, it's plastic wrap to the rescue. Remove the caps and lay a sheet of plastic wrap on top of the opening. Replace the cap, and you'll have a much tighter seal to keep everything where it belongs. Now, the only question is, where are you going to wash your hair?
If you like to go camping, you are probably the proud owner of a canopy, and if you are not, this is the time to go and buy one. There's a lot to be said for canopies, but they're not the most rain-proof thing out there. If your canopy needs rain or wind protection to remain tight, stable, and refrain from being ruined, pool noodles can do the trick for you.
Just stick it under the corners of the canopy in a semicircle, and your canopy will be sure to weather any storm. Who would have thought that our summer swimming companion will come to our rescue when camping?
