No matter how much I'm looking forward to the trip.
House cleaning: check
Highly organized master checklists creation: check
CAMPING HACK TRIALS: CHECK
Fire starters - Highly recommend
Easy for kids to make, low prep (save the tubes & lint), easy to pack, effective
Stuff dryer lint into empty cardboard tubes, insert birthday candle.
Spice straws - Highly recommend
Easy to prep (not so much for kids), great size for packing
Use striker/match to melt one end of a straw, pour in spice, melt the other end.
Teeccino bags - Highly recommend
Easy to make, low prep, easy to pack, fast & tidy use, effective -- use two filters next time.
Even mint dental floss wasn't a problem!
Scoop teeccino, coffee substitute, coffee, loose leaf tea, what have you, into doubled coffee filters, tie with dental floss.
Toothpaste dots (not pictured) - interesting to try, but not worth the effort. To be fair, they were recommended for backpacking, with, I think, the intention being to chew & swallow them. Easier to pack a tiny tube of toothpaste.
In case you'd like to try them for yourself: squeeze dots of toothpaste onto tray, sprinkle with baking soda, and let dry.
How will I procrastinate next time?! Please share your camping hacks.
