As I always tell people, or anyone who is interested, that camping is the way to go. There are so many advantages to this unique activity and so many different styles and variety of ways to do it that you can never get bored or tired of it. Just remembering and reminiscence about these camping experiences can be a great bonding exercise for family and friends.

National Parks, Forests and Monuments are the most precious jewels our government provided for us to enjoy since 1916, for the well being of ones body and soul. The best and most thorough way to enjoy them is through camping. How could you otherwise relish the cool fresh air and night sky whether studded with shinning stars, with a bright moon or in darkness? How else could you feel the abundance of nature and the insignificance of oneself?

In these public campgrounds, you are given the opportunity to make conversation and friends with anyone, whether very old or very young, whether they speak your language nor not. Everyone is there for the purpose of enjoying nature, which majesty and beauty can never be surpassed. Therefore all these campgrounds have a happy atmosphere and all you have to do is go there and enjoy! Even though there are not the many amenities as some private campgrounds, they compensate with the wonderful fresh air, night sounds of animals, owls and winds which contribute to an exciting camping experience.

Another plus in camping is that you see excited and happy faces every where, whether tired from sightseeing or ready to go. During our first westward camping trip at a national park, we went up on a tower to enjoy the scenic view, as I looked down I saw our car with our pop-up hitched to it. Then I looked again as it was hard to believe that there was an identical station wagon, same model, color and year with the same brand and size of pop-up hitched on its back. These campers must have noticed ours so they parked their car & trailer back to back with ours. We wished that we had time to wait for them but there were too many sites to see to waste time waiting. We did look and saw that they were from California. What a coincidence! We never had another such “look alike” experience again.

There are so many beautifully written articles and films about these national parks, forests and monuments, though not particularly about camping in them. You'll never know the excitement and the wonder of actually being there, camping there. So, gear up, go camping!

Sitting in front of a fire or enjoying the dancing flames with family and friends over good conversation is a great way to pass an evening. Adding some flair and color to the fire with everyday items will astound your guests and make them squeal with delight. Several household items change the color of a fire from standard orange and yellow to blues, greens and reds.

Instructions

Things You'll Need

  • One of several chemicals listed below
  • A fire
  • Personal protective equipment

The most important and first step is read all the warnings for this article. If you do not, very bad things could happen.

Now determine what color you want to change the flame to. The options are red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, purple, and bright white.

Here's the breakdown by color:

Color
Salts

Red
Any Strontium salt like Strontium Nitrate

Orange
Calcium Chloride

Yellow
Sodium Nitrate, Sodium Chloride (Table Salt)

Green
Barium salts such as Barium nitrate, Borax

Turquoise
Copper sulphate

Blue
Copper (II) Chloride (Campfire Blue)

Purple
Potassium Permanganate

White
Magnesium Sulphate

There are a few different methods you can use, they are listed below.

  • Toss dry colorants onto the flames.
  • Soak logs in an alcohol solution of colorants.
  • Soak logs in an aqueous (water) solution of colorants and allow the logs to dry.
  • Prepare pinecones, sawdust, or cork with colorants.

In general, there is no specific ratio of colorant to mix with the alcohol or water. Add as much powdered colorant as will dissolve in the liquid. Do not attempt to mix colors together – you will probably end up with a normal yellow flame. If you want multicolored fire, try adding a few different pinecones, each soaked with a single colorant, or scatter a mixture of dried colored sawdust across the fire.

How to Prepare Pinecones or Sawdust

Remember to do this procedure separately for each color. You can combine some sawdust, dry pinecones or any other absorbant material with different colorants later.

  1. Pour water into a bucket. Use sufficient water to be able to wet your pinecones, sawdust, or waste cork. (Skip to step 3 if you purchased your colorant in liquid form.)
  2. Stir in colorant until you can not dissolve any more. For sawdust or waste cork, you may also add some liquid glue, which will allow the pieces to stick together and form larger chunks.
  3. Add the pinecones, sawdust, or cork. Mix to form an even coat.
  4. Let the material soak in the colorant mixture for several hours or overnight.
  5. Spread the pieces out to dry. If desired, pinecones may be placed in a paper or mesh bag. You can spread sawdust or cork out on paper, which will also produce colored flames.

How to Prepare Logs

Follow steps 1 and 2 above and either roll a log around in the container (big container, small log) or else pour and spread the mixture onto the logs. Wear appropriate protective gloves to protect yourself. Allow them to dry. You can make your own newspaper logs by smearing colorant onto the newspaper before rolling it.

Points to Keep in Mind

  • Always take care and use the appropriate protective equipment when working with chemicals or fire.
  • Keep the colorants away from children and handle them with the care and respect due to potentially hazardous chemicals. Read and adhere to any warnings listed on product labels.
  • The element sodium burns with a yellow flame. The presence of this element can overwhelm any other color. For this reason you should avoid using sodium if you are making a dry mixture.
  • If you are using alcohol-based colorants: Remember that alcohol is flammable. If you do not allow it to evaporate before use, you will get a lighter-fluid effect. Use with care!
  • You should not try to color the color of a barbecue, because although it will produce pretty flames it can also produce toxic fumes that will go into the food.

Save Money On Your Next Vacation – Go Camping At State Parks

Are you daydreaming about summer vacation? Do you have mixed emotions? I can relate to that. You really need a vacation. And you really need to have some fun, and relaxation. The only problem … can you afford it. Believe me, I know the feeling. And I will share some real money-saving tips for taking…

Are you daydreaming about summer vacation? Do you have mixed emotions? I can relate to that. You really need a vacation. And you really need to have some fun, and relaxation. The only problem … can you afford it. Believe me, I know the feeling. And I will share some real money-saving tips for taking a vacation.

The plan that I want to share with you, came about quite by accident. I live in Indiana. One day I was in a convenience store looking at some magazines. One magazine in particular cult my interest. It was about things to do, and places to see, in Indiana. I think it was called “Wander Indiana.”

After I looked through the magazine, I was really surprised at all the different types of State Parks in Indiana. I was raised in Northwest Indiana; and never wandered too far from home. In our little corner of the State; there is Lake Michigan, and sand dunes. Then it's all flat land, and corn fields, as far as the eye can see.

I was really surprised at all the pictures in the magazine of our different State Parks. The scenery, the terrain, it was all different from around here. I kept looking at the pictures and thinking to myself, I want to go there. Wait a minute, that place looks interesting too. And it's really not that far away.

I determined right then, where I'm taking my family on our next vacation. And since my family loves to go camping, we'll visit State Parks. This was an easy decision to make, because the rates to camp were very reasonable. I had vacation time coming, but I did not have a lot of money. It was a perfect fit.

Please do not misunderstand this plan. This is not about vacationing in Indiana. But rather, it's about vacationing in the State that you live in. Look at your State Parks. You might be surprised at what they have to offer. Your family may enjoy hiking trails, swimming, boating, and sight-seeing. We have caves in Southern Indiana too. If your state has them, go explore a cave.

I do not know how you feel about tent camping, but if nothing else, it's a great way to sleep cheap. Build a campfire, and cook your meal over it. Once again you've saved more money. Going to the nearest supermarket, and buying food to cook at the campsite, is cheaper than going to a restaurant.

The rates to camp at State parks vary depending on the sites, and the days of the week. There are primitives sites with no hook-ups (electric, sewage, water). Although the primitive sites are the cheapest, I always paid a little more to get a site with water, and electric.

First you'll need some camping equipment. Depending on your finances you can buy new, or used equipment. Of course you'll need a tent, and sleeping bags (I always slept on an air mattress). Next I would suggest you get a good size cooler. Big enough for your food, and sodas. I like to use a tripod grill for cooking over the campfire. Hint: maybe you can borrow some, or all of the camping equipment from family or friends.

Staycation Planning: I Went on a Staycation and Didn’t Realize It

It was summertime in 2005, and my wife wanted the family to go on a vacation. I had vacation time coming, but very little money. Well my wife had an idea for a low-cost vacation. And when she explained her idea, it sounded like a good plan. Here's how it worked: We are surrounded by…

It was summertime in 2005, and my wife wanted the family to go on a vacation. I had vacation time coming, but very little money. Well my wife had an idea for a low-cost vacation. And when she explained her idea, it sounded like a good plan.

Here's how it worked: We are surrounded by interesting, and fun places to see. These places are within a 2 hour drive from our home. So on Monday, we could drive south to one of our favorite amusement parks. We do not go there very often, because It's an hour and a half drive one way.

On Tuesday, we drove west to Chicago. We could go to the Science and Industry, or Field Museums. We live in a small town in Indiana. It's a little over an hour drive to Chicago. I really enjoy going to the museums. But I do not go there to often, because of the heavy traffic.

On Wednesday, we'll go east to Amish country. They have a huge flea market there. It's only open on Wednesday, so it's a big event. Also it's interesting to see the town that it's located in. Some of the buildings are very old. It's like, going back in time. And a big contrast, from a big city like Chicago. This is about an hour and a half drive one way from our home.

On Thursday, we traveled north about 45 minutes to the Indiana Dunes State Park. Here we can go swimming all day long in Lake Michigan. Then in the evening we drve another half hour to a drive-in theater. There are only three drive-in theaters in our area. Years ago, there used to be a drive-in theater in every town. Now you have to drive 45 minutes one way, to get to one.

Finally our family went camping on Friday, and Saturday, at our favorite campground. I do not remember what this vacation cost alike. But I had sufficient money to pay for it. And I did not know that this would (someday) be called a “staycation”. My family enjoyed the week. And we consider this to be our vacation.

There is a simple formula to this type of vacation. By using your home as a daily starting point, you'll be sleeping in your own beds at night. This will save the cost of staying at a motel. Also, you can pack a picnic lunch to take with you each day. Actually we had a big cooler full of food and drink. Enough to last us all day. Food and lodging are two big expenses when budgeting for a vacation.

Then I tried to find fun places, that my family would enjoy. I looked for places that I could drive to in about 2 hours. And I did this for several reasons: I did not want to rent a car. My older car could handle a 2 hour drive. My kids would get restless on long trips. They did pretty good sitting in the car for two hours. And last, but not least, the high cost of gasoline.

How To Select Children’s Sleeping Bags For Camping

I really do not want you to be misled into thinking the same novelty bag you bought your little tyke for sleep overs will work just fine. Those novelty bags are not adequately loaded for outdoor use. So you might ask, “Why do not I just buy an adult bag? Wrong! It just will not…

I really do not want you to be misled into thinking the same novelty bag you bought your little tyke for sleep overs will work just fine. Those novelty bags are not adequately loaded for outdoor use. So you might ask, “Why do not I just buy an adult bag? Wrong! It just will not work that way.

Let me explain why children need their very own kid sized bags. The same principles that apply to your adult body warm up a bag, apply to a kid warming up an adult size sack. The sack is warmed up with body heat. A snugger fitting bag will eliminate extra dead air space, keeping the little ones more cozy.

You'll be able to find the perfect fit as the sizes of children's bags will vary up to 5 feet 5 inches in length. So you can be sure to buy the right children's sleeping bags for camping with your child. Your kids will be thrilled to have their very own bag just like mom and dad's. A mini mine!

It used to be most children's sleeping bags for camping did not have much style or flare. I remember those big bulky and smelly rectangular bags my dad had for us kids. Today that has all been changed. Kid's camping bags nowdays feature a wide variety of styles and colors.

You will find children's sleeping bags for camping in mummy, semi-mummy and rectangular just like adult bags. As well as the same temperature ratings and fills as adult sized bags.

There are many options for children's sleeping bags for camping. Some bags come with pillows attached. Others will have an external pocket for keeping their favorite toy and headlamps handy. Shop around and you are sure to find exactly what your child needs.

I recall sleeping out under the stars during a meteor shower as one of the most exciting things around making and eating s'mores, or going on a snipe hunt on a camping trip when I was growing up. Heck, I still enjoy a meteor shower and taking a newbie out for a good ol 'snipe hunt. Maybe I'm one of those that will not grow up!

My point is you can find children's sleeping bags for camping that will keep them toasty, warm and as snug as a bug all night long. A good youth bag is money well spent in getting your kids to explore the great outdoors with you enjoying nature as it was intended to be.

Review of the MSR Simmelite Campstove

I used an MSR Simmerlite on a motorcycle and camping trip from Alaska to Chile, spending five months with it. I purchased it for this trip, and (other than fires) was my only means of cooking. I chose the Simmerlite over the less expensive Whisperlite for the sole feature of being able to adjust the…

I used an MSR Simmerlite on a motorcycle and camping trip from Alaska to Chile, spending five months with it. I purchased it for this trip, and (other than fires) was my only means of cooking.

I chose the Simmerlite over the less expensive Whisperlite for the sole feature of being able to adjust the temperature. Only being able to boil water with your stove is fine for shorter trips, but being able to adjust the flame expands the available menu considering which is important when on the road for months.

I purchased the Simmerlite for $ 100, or $ 10 more than a Whisperlite at the time. It came with a small MSR bottle, 300ml. This was enough for a couple of meals. I used the stove with an aluminum cook set, and prepared a variety of dishes, as well as boiling water and once heating my piston so I could remove it for serving.

For boiling water the stove did fine, though the control for reducing the heat was touchy and hard to adjust. In the past I've used a Coleman stove, which was much easier to adjust. Part of problem might have been the small fuel bottle – as the fuel was used the pressure inside the can dropped caused increased difficulty maintaining lower heats – but I think most of the problem was the dial. It is a decent size, but hard to turn even after some use and the rotation is short. This means tiny turns cause large changes in the size of the flame.

The stove does come with a wind block and reflector, and simple tools with clear instructions on their use. It assembles quickly and easily, and burns unleaded fuel so I could fill it from the motorcycle's tank. Aware of the potential carbon build up using this fuel causes, the Simmerlite has a built in cleaning feature. I never had issues with clogged jets. Even with the MSR bottle the stove was half the size and less than half the weight of my old Coleman.

Even with these features, I am not sure I would have put the Simmerlite over my Coleman, without the space was an issue. If you are shopping for a stove and planning to mostly heat water with occasional other meals the Simmerlite might be an option, the self-cleaning feature alone is worth the extra $ 10 over the Whisperlite. But if you are looking for a true stove, with good temperature control and small size the MSR Simmerlite may not be the best choice.

Earth Day Is A Wonderful Day To Enjoy Camping With Ozone Safe Guard Alaska Bear Spray

Earth Day is April 22nd and I for one can not think of a better way to celebrate the beautiful planet we live that that to get out and enjoy nature through the timeless tradition of camping. Camping is a great way for family and friends to enjoy the great outdoors, get exercise and breathe…

Earth Day is April 22nd and I for one can not think of a better way to celebrate the beautiful planet we live that that to get out and enjoy nature through the timeless tradition of camping. Camping is a great way for family and friends to enjoy the great outdoors, get exercise and breathe in the cool spring air that nature provides us with. Depending on where you go camping you must never forget to bring one particular item and that is Guard Alaska Bear Spray. If you do not have bear spray and ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation of coming face to face with a wrinkled bear, well it might just be the last camping trip you ever take. Without Guard Alaska bear spray it might just be the last trip you take anywhere.

Earth Day is also a day to celebrate not just and preserve flora but fauna as well. We humans have done much to drastically reduce the amount of land that many animals called home. Bears in particular used to roam freely over a vast portion of North America until we humans wipped out a fair percentage of them and forced them into smaller and smaller areas to live. There are still areas in North America where bears roam freely and many of those areas are beautiful places to go camping, like Yosemite National Park for one. When we go camping in places like Yosemite, or anywhere there is even the slightest possibility of seeing a bear we have to remember to bring along bear spray to protect ourselves but we must also think about these poor bears. You see bear attacks do not occur because the bears involved are blood-thirsty beats just waiting to prey upon unsuspecting humans, they happen because the bear is concerned for its own safety and does not understand the human's intentions. Bear spray, like pepper spray, although immensely effective causes no permanent damage to the man or creature being sprayed. The immensely painful burning sensation and swelling of the eyes is enough to stop any attacker, man or beast, but the effects wear off in a relatively short amount of time.

What is so wonderful about Guard Alaska bear spray is that its ingredients are 100% natural, as is almost any brand of pepper spray, and contains absolutely no harmful, ozone-depleting chemicals. So not only does this bear spray keep you and your loved ones safe but it keeps the bear safe and possibly most importantly on Earth Day is the fact that it keeps Mother Nature safe.

Stay Safe,
Carl Vouer

Camping Is All About the Campfire

Whether you are pitching a tent, parking an RV, or rolling out a sleeping bag under the stars, few things on earth are wonderful as taking yourself off to the woods or the beach for a few nights surrounded by natural beauty. Some people will tell you that if there is an RV involved, it…

Whether you are pitching a tent, parking an RV, or rolling out a sleeping bag under the stars, few things on earth are wonderful as taking yourself off to the woods or the beach for a few nights surrounded by natural beauty. Some people will tell you that if there is an RV involved, it is not camping so much as cheating. Although it is definitely a different version of theoretically roughing it, the inclusion of a few activities will help to legitimize even those who need electricity and television access from their campground facilities. Coincidentally enough, all of them center around one classic staple.

One of the very best things about camping is the campfire. On chilly nights, it keeps you warm. On warm nights, it helps to keep the mosquitoes and other unwelcome wildlife, winged and otherwise, away. On any night, it smells fantastic. That schent somehow always brings a smile and fond memories, even if they require retrospective humor for the grin to spread.

Perhaps most important of all, a fire you build yourself is the only true method for creating the best s'mores on the planet. Marshmallows toasted over actual flames are a specific requirement for a reason. If you have never before personally tasted the difference, do so very soon.

Campfires also serve well as a gathering point for the group you are traveling with. Storytelling and / or live music of some kind are central to this particular overnight experience. Scary stories are, of course, traditional. Any narrative from nostalgic remembrances to tall tales will do the trick, though. You might be surprised how quickly people join in once some brave soul goes first.

“Kumbaya” and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” are trite for a reason. They are an easy place to start, mostly because almost everyone knows at least one of them. Replace the latter with “Soft Kitty” from The Big Bang Theory, sung as a round, and you've added a bit of pop culture credibility to your outing. If you are on a family vacation, this update may even temporarily reduce any teenaged eye rolling. (No guarantees.)

Even the least experienced camper can manage a solidly tasty breakfast by campfire. Oatmeal with coffee, tea or hot cocoa is the easiest meal to start with. Why? The words “just add hot water” are music to novice ears. However, you do not have to settle for instant coffee. There are no-tech drip coffee makers that fit over the top of your mug and require nothing more complex – or heavy to carry – than a regular filter to start your day with a good cup of joe. There's no need to be uncivilized as you enjoy the wild.

When people ask how your vacation was, skip the part about access to hot showers and talk about nights around a fire. Camping will sound as good to them as it was for you. Just remember what Smokey the Bear said, “Only you can prevent forest fires.”

Invest in a Portable Propane Heater

It's an unfortunate fact that we do not have access to electricity everywhere we go. We, as humans, enjoy a great many activities which occasionally take us away from modern conveniences such as an electrical supply. Some of the places we go can be very cold hanging on the time of year we decide to…

It's an unfortunate fact that we do not have access to electricity everywhere we go. We, as humans, enjoy a great many activities which occasionally take us away from modern conveniences such as an electrical supply. Some of the places we go can be very cold hanging on the time of year we decide to go. We need to ask the question of how it's possible to stay warm so we can continue these various activities with some moderate amount of comfort. One way of solving this dilemma may be through the use of portable propane heaters. Portable propane heather come in a variety of sizes and cater to a wide range of applications from large functions to the hiker trekking through the mountains. For the camping family sizes are available that are just perfect for the average family sized tent. Just make sure you know the size of the area you are going to be heating before purchasing. From there you can select the correct level of BTUs that you need to keep the area neatly heated.

Safety is paramount when you have any kind of heater operating in the area. Always place your gas heater on a flat surface that is not sloping. The instruction manual has everything you need to know in regards to safety so make sure you read it. It pays to get a unit that is CSA approved so you know it is built to a particular standard. Look for propane heaters that switch off when tipped over. Children will always manage to tip something over that is not expected to be yours your best intentions.

A few propane heaters around the house can come in handy even if you do not enjoy the odd camping trip. If your power goes out you have a ready source of heating. An excellent accessory to have in your RV in an emergency you can grab your little portable propane heater from the cupboard and use it to keep warm while you change a tire.

Three major designs make up the portable propane heater range. You have forced air propane heaters and convection heaters which are usually the larger variety that are used to heat large areas during a function or special event. For heat generation these units usually measure in the tens of thousands of BTUs. Radiant heaters are smaller, more portable and produce less heat. These are what you will find in people's homes, tents and caravans.

Camping portable heaters are designed for small areas and can run for hours on one tank.
