Buzzfeed.com recently posted an article on fun and functional ideas that can be used for RV, tent camping or both in some cases. Campers are in general very resourceful and creative people. You never know what amenities you’ll have at a campsite and it’s always good to be prepared.
Here are a few highlights from the article:
1) Make sandwich bread in a tin can — A quick and easy recipe for fresh bread on the go.
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
salt to taste
1/4 cup finely minced sun-dried tomato
1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
1 package (or 1 tablespoon) yeast
Mix all ingredients to create dough
Spray insides of two tall tomato-juice-size cans
Divide dough and place in cans
Cover cans and let rise for an hour
Place cans in cold oven
Turn oven on to 400 degrees and allow bread to heat inside oven for 15 minutes
After 15 minutes, turn oven down to 350
Let bake for 15 more minutes at 350
Let cool and enjoy!
2) Use tic tac boxes to store spices — This will help save room in an RV or in your picnic basket.
3) Make a mini first aid kit from an old prescription bottle — This saves space on short trips and ladies can even carry in their purse.
4) Add sage bundles to your campfire to repel mosquitos — These bugs are especially pesky and dangerous in the summertime heat.
