Going RV camping? Here are 10 of the most creative DIY hacks. In the age of throwing things away, this gives you great ideas to reduce, reuse and recycle. We apologize in advance for the bad puns….
1. GET SLICK KICKS
Okay, camping in Florida is amazing, but it rains a lot. Sure, the rain only lasts for twenty minutes, but it can sometimes leave sneaky little puddles on the ground. Try this trick for waterproofing your shoes so you can stomp through the puddles with the glee of a child.
2. THAT’S CANTASTIC!
Need a grill at a moments notice? Grab that empty can of beans, some tin foil, charcoal and a grate and you’ve got a homemade grill in minutes. Those hot dogs look delicious, don’t they?
3. SOME SAGE ADVICE
Buggy night? Add some sage to your campfire to keep away the bugs. Oh, and it will smell good too! Talk about a double-win.
4. YOUR DAILY GRIND
If you’re like us, going a day without coffee is simply NOT an option. This simple and easy DIY solution will keep you caffeinated no matter where your travels take you.
5. BUBBLE TROUBLE
Who showers when they are camping? Just kidding, you don’t want to be “that guy”. Instead of messing up your entire bar of soap every time you shower, try cutting it up into single servings. Note: this is not food.
6. ORANGE YOU GLAD WE HAVE TAPE?
Have you ever parked your car, went grocery shopping and then forgot where you parked? That sucks, but not as bad as walking around lost in a forest. Parking lots are usually more hospitable. Usually. This orange tape is not only bright and easy to see, but also biodegradable, so you won’t have to collect in on your way back.
7. SHAKE IT UP
No, we’re not done with the bad puns yet. Are you sick of eating granola bars and bits of sand for breakfast? This is a great idea so you can have pancakes while you camp. Simply add the appropriate mix to a mason jar, add an egg and some water and shake it up. It’s easy and there’s not much clean up after. Yum!
