MacGyver-style Camping Hacks
As the saying goes, camping means “roughing it” – but how rough it actually has to be is up to you. Read on for 10 camping hacks that would even impress MacGyver.
Keep your TP grime-free by using an empty coffee can and some string to carry it around with you.
Use the coffee from your new toilet paper carrier to make instant coffee pods. Put one scoop into a coffee filter, tie with floss, and enjoy a freshly brewed cup in minutes.
Wash out an empty laundry detergent dispenser, fill it with water, and keep soap and a towel handy for when you need to wash up.
Strap an old belt to a tree, and use hooks to hang up your pots and pans.
Don’t lug the whole bag of coal over to your fire like a noob – use an egg carton to get those flames going.
Give your matches a coat of shellac, and they’ll still light even when damp.
What’s cheaper than a flashlight and doesn’t need batteries? A glass jar with a glow stick in it.
All you need is a tin can, some foil, charcoal and a grilling rack to roast your dogs.
If moderation is just not your thing, cook 15 dogs at once with a rake roaster (after you hose off the leaves).
No fancy transportable speakers required in the great outdoors — all you need is a ceramic cup that fits your iPhone and it’ll amplify the sound.
