I haven't seen this posted anywhere but I kind of like the ingenuity of some of the simple ways to make trail or campsites more comfortable.

I would quibble about a couple, tee tree oil doesn't seem to work on Eastern Washington ticks so much, but maybe it works in other climates with other ticks. Overall, good thought behind some of these.

#16 looks like a great way to inadvertently set the woods on fire......

#3 is bogus. http://www.snopes.com/photos/food/mountaindew.asp

But otherwise, some good ideas here.

Some of 'em are pretty good, though.

I've tried a few of these things, such as stick bread and its pretty good. I like the cinnamon roll in the orange rind idea. I'm going to try it when I head out to the canyonlands and high plains this weekend. It's fun stuff, thanks for posting the article.
