My witticsim for today (Camping considerations Pt.1, fires)

Life on the road isn’t possible for most folk unless you do a spell of camping and tent pitching. Not everyone can afford to always stay in a Motel Six or some other such luxury like a Kardashian or the like. So in light of that when you decide on a spot to claim as yours there are considerations to take into account.

Today we’ll go over those things and some tips to make your life easier then a fox rooting through a hen house with no yard dog looking on.  Mostly you’ll want to heed to these suggestions as preparations and not while you’re in the act of camping.

First off and I’ve said it before in regard to many other instances. You have to be always considering the temperature when deciding on pitching your home.

If your not prepared for inclement weather you may as well dig into your life savings and cough up that twenty or thirty dollars for a roof over your head at a local and hopefully cheap room to rent. You’ll be dry, warm and ready to camp another day.

Being prepared like the Boy Scouts used to say is about the best advice anyone can give. I have some tips that will help once you’ve set up your camp and are ready to get that fire going for vittles and such. Get yourselves a bag of cotton balls and a jar of Vaseline. I know what your thinking , (I haven’t used a jar of Vaseline since my trip to San Fransickie in my youth) but listen here and you’ll learn something.

Take a cotton ball and rub a small amount of Vaseline in it. Do this to a good number of balls (cotton ones only fellas) and put them in a tin or a plastic container/bag for safe keeping. Once you’re ready to start that fire and have your kindling and such ready to go in the pit and1 place two or three of the balls under the kindling.

Take some care when your ready to light that sucker since if you’re too close you might end up like a buddy of mine we call “No eyebrow Bob”.  This will get your fire going quick like a jack rabbit on a date and you’ll be cooking in no time. Tomorrow we’ll talk about sleeping tips and considerations when on the road. Stay safe out there H.D.
