CAMPING GEAR

Would you use this?

Its called a Camping Cot, but not in the traditional sense as for babies. Its basically a stretcher bed with a tent connected to it.

It folds open like the rooftop tents used by 4x4 campers, which makes it very quick. It also should fold flat like a fordable table size.

I can see the benefits in this:
- Raised from the floor.
- Single or Double sleeper.
- Rain proof.
- Soft stretcher bed as base.

Tech Tips Trick Saturday - Colored Camp Fire

This is very cool, but fire is alway dangerous in any format. PLEASE do not attempt this if you are unsure on how to do this or if you have not made fire before.

The process goes as follows:
Get a few fire logs or large pieces of very dry wood. Next from the list bellow select a coloring agent and dilute it into a bucket of water until you cannot dissolve any more.

Next take your firewood and soak it in the liquid for a good hour. Leave the wood out in the sun to dry before you put it in the fire.

Important:
Use rubber gloves when handling the wet logs. Some of the chemicals may burn your skin when wet.

List of coloring chemicals
Color = Chemical

Carmine = Lithium Chloride

Red = Strontium Chloride

Orange = Calcium Chloride (a bleaching powder)

Yellow = Sodium Chloride (table salt) or Sodium Carbonate

Yellowish Green = Borax

Green = Copper Sulfate ( from a hardware store ) or Boric Acid (poison)

Blue = Copper Chloride

Violet(smoke) = 3 parts Potassium Sulfate 1 part Potassium Nitrate (saltpeter)

Purple = Potassium Chloride

White = Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom salts)

BE SAFE!

Hello everyone 😊 I really want to go camping with my kids but don't have all the equipment like everything, we have basically nothing. Is there camping places where you can go camping and everything is there already. I just want to take our food for the week. Is there places around CT where we will feel safe, secured and have a great time. Can you please give me some information if there is camping places like this. Surely not now, but we can start to plan for the future. Thank you, stay safe and blessed.
Admin please remove if not allowed - A great addition to your shell type roof top tent – have morning coffee in bed and enjoy the view :) The extrusion can be fitted just below your opening of choice – the bolts slide into the extrusion and are then lined up and inserted into the board and then hand tightening is sufficient – one minute tops to set up ! No worries of spilling coffee in the tent or just spoil your other half while she has a lie in ! The extrusion can also be fitted to the inside of 5th doors and then serves as a small work space or serving area – the board is solid hard wood and can also be used as a chopping board for the kitchen. The powder coated extrusion, stainless steel bolts and board sell for only R 850 as a kit !
Hi Guys I would like to share these really cool Rechargeable 2-in-1 Solar Phone Charger & Lantern. I'm a camper myself and these lanterns are amazing to use! These unique lanterns have up to 50hrs of light on the low light setting which is great for a camp site or any other night outdoor activity. I got myself a few and they are so practical and lightweight, you can hang them on trees, place them along path ways in between campsites. My wife really loved to use them when she had to walk to the restrooms at night, they really are very bight and can light up the those dark bathrooms at night, with its waterproof feature, it makes a perfect addition for a nights swim or shower in a poorly lit bathroom. They are currently running a sale 30% off use the following Discount Code. Happy Campers
