    A few camping tips:

    When using a public campground, a tuba placed on your
    picnic table will keep the campsites on either side vacant.

    Modern rain suits made of fabrics that "breathe" enable
    campers to stay dry in a downpour. Rain suits that sneeze,
    cough, and belch, however, have been proven to add
    absolutely nothing to the wilderness experience.

    Lint from your navel makes a handy fire starter.
    Warning: Remove lint from navel before applying the match.

    You'll never be lost if you remember that moss always
    grows on the north side of your compass.

    You can duplicate the warmth of a down-filled bedroll
    by climbing into a plastic garbage bag with several geese.

    A two-man pup tent does not include two men or a pup.

    A potato baked in the coals for one hour makes an excellent
    side dish. A potato baked in the coals for three hours
    makes an excellent hockey puck.

    The guitar of the noisy teenager at the next campsite
    makes excellent kindling.

    The sight of a bald eagle has thrilled campers for
    generations. The sight of a bald man, however, does
    absolutely nothing for the eagle.

    Bear bells provide an element of safety for hikers in
    grizzly country. The tricky part is getting them on
    the bears.

    great post ...

    I lovin this one;

    You'll never be lost if you remember that moss always
    grows on the north side of your compass.


    and I just experience this one ;

    A potato baked in the coals for one hour makes an excellent
    side dish. A potato baked in the coals for three hours
    makes an excellent hockey puck.


    I was baking a potatore in alum and got into a long debated discussion with a passerby and ended up with not a hockey put but a black "real done" potatoe :(
