Reading your favorite paperback or hardcover by the pool when camping is a classic way to get all of your relaxing done at once. While it’s never fun to drop a book in the water or get it covered in dirt, dropping a reader full of sensitive electronics will leave you with a useless item.
If you can’t keep away from those thrilling books even when you’re in nature, slip your device into a plastic bag. As long as the seal is intact and there are no holes in the bag, your device will be fine even if it does land in the waves.
Bug Bite Balm
If you go outside in the summer, even if it's just a 5-second excursion to throw out the trash, chances are you might have a bug bite or two. Or, possibly, even more than that if you were out for a full-blown camping trip. The more time you spend outside, the more bites you are about to get.
In the event of having an itchy, throbbing bug bite, a blob of VapoRub over the offending area could minimize the symptoms and prevent the bite area from being scratched. This should only be used with insignificant bites such as mosquitoes or gnats. If it is a spider bite or worse, seek medical attention immediately!
Insects know no boundaries, and when the summer comes and the camping season begins, they appear in their hundreds. It is great to be one with nature and all when sleeping outdoors, but do we have to endure the buzzing bombardment of mother nature’s minute kamikaze pilots?
The short answer is “no” if you have a few jars of VapoRub on hand! The scent of the menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus ingredients is overpowering for insects, and they will generally avoid it at all costs. A good hack is to melt some VapoRub over the fire and leave it in small open containers around the table, as the aroma will deter any insects from getting too close.
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.
