This is Part 5 of My Camping Series. For more camping info, check out the links at the bottom of this post.
This past May I gave you some of my favorite Camping Tips and Tricks. This past June we had another great trip and I brought home even more tips and tricks!!
In my last tips and tricks post I mentioned how we use the fork rests as a barrier around the fire pit... In my family it has come to be known as 'The Ring of Death' (I know morbid, sry) Fork rests are also great for drying clothes and shoes on. When my niece, Princess, got too close to the water and drenched her shoes, we just put them on the fork rests by the fire to get dry. Usually the clothes line works great for drying everything, but shoes just never seam to get fully dry on a camping trip if you get them wet. I've dried shoes, socks, hats, and even underwear on the fork rests. During the cold months, I also love to put an extra pair of socks on the fork rests so I have warm socks to go to bed with.
Note and personal plea: Rosey Posey is a wonderful swimmer and I have been swimming for over 25 years, but in our family anyone under 16 must wear a life jacket when swimming in the lake. I don't even go in deep water without a float (like a noodle). A lake is not like a pool: it has a current, hidden dangers, and murky water. PLEASE always use life jackets (or floats for adults) even if you/your kids are a great swimmer. Don't let your relaxing trip turn into a tragedy.
Okay, I'll get off my soap box now. Thanks for listening ;) Do you have any great camping tips?
