My good friend Jeff Walker, founder of The Perfect CampfireGrill, has designed and built an amazing line of grills to cook over a campfire. Jeff's grills are made from heavy-guage steel and have a patented one inch raised edge that allows the cook to put food up to the edge without it rolling off into the campfire. Not only are his grills affordable, they are simple to setup. Put the stake in the ground,...[More]

So here are the links to the originally posts. Enjoy! Kamp Kitchen - Food Storage Kamp Kitchen - Packing...[More]

This is a cool video I stumbled across with a guy showing how he hangs a hammock in his mini-van. All he really does is hook each end of the hammock in the doors, one in the front passenger door, and the other in the back cargo door.
