Outdoor travel is in full-swing at this point of the summer. And while tons of people are enjoying their nights under the stars roasting s'mores, camping can be dangerous if you're not prepared. It's very easy (and more common) these days for people to get lost or loose (or run out) of their supplies. When the time comes to learn how to survive, not everybody knows what to do. This gallery of awesome camping hacks can help you be prepared feel like a pro. From single-serve toothpaste to ziploc bag pillows or chips used as tinder, these camping hacks are super easy and practical...even a camping novice (like me) can figure these out.
Even if you're not a fan of camping, these hacks can come into use in the event of an emergency or even if you're just missing a usual go-to item (like your iPod speaker). Who would have thought that a toilet paper roll could act as a speaker? Or that cotton pads dipped in wax were a great way to start a fire? Or what about using a bar of soap to alleviate itchy mosquito bites? There are so many cool hacks here that we can't wait to try at least one of them just for fun!
