Tip No. 64 – Rubbermaid’s 50-gallon Roughneck Jumbo Storage Box easily holds tents, tarps, sleeping bags or pillows.
Tip No. 65 – Rubbermaid’s 45-gallon Roughneck Jumbo Wheeled Storage Box can be a lifesaver when it comes to carrying supplies a long distance.
Tip No. 66 – Scouts may recall metal mess kits, but plastic tableware is handy as it retains food heat well; a plastic mug of hot coffee is easier on the lips than metal.
Tip No. 67 – At a primitive campsite (fire ring only), fill four large empty cans with water and use as a base for your grill over campfire. When the meal is over, use the warmed water to wash dishes and to put our the fire.
Tip No. 68 – Before you go, be sure to freeze a few Blue Ice packs to store in your ice chest for hours of cooling power.
Tip No. 69 – Freeze wet washcloths in plastic sandwich bags; store them in your ice chest inside a food container. Take the individual bags on hikes to help take the itch out of insect bits, or as a refreshing wipe.
Tip No. 70 – TakeAlong food storage containers will fit into the pockets of back packs to hold crushable foods; when empty they can help protect fragile nature treasures you may collect (seashells, pine cones, leaves, etc.).
Tip No. 72 – Many state and national parks have a "carry in/carry out" policy in campgrounds. Minimize waste paper by repackaging food in plastic TakeAlong food containers. These help insure freshness and seal in aroma, so food is less likely to attract unwelcome pests or four-legged friends.
