A long time ago, there was no money. There were no kings, no rules and no borders. We lived as hunters and gatherers, and we were free. Yes, at times life was hard. Death could come swiftly. But no matter what kind of misfortune life threw in our faces, we were free. And there were times when we thrived and even had time for art and music.
Everything you need to know about this hammock…
Originally created by Ticket To The Moon, tested in all climates around the world since 1996, the camping hammock was made by travellers for travellers.
A comfortable sleep and ideal protection from rocky, wet, or sloping terrain as well as from insects and small reptiles, it can replace your tent: lightweight, strong, foldable, the hammock sets up in less than a minute!
Well, here is my first attempt on making me some firediscs……
Making the wafers is easy: just put the candle into a pan you don’t mind getting some wax in,
and turn up the heat, low and slow. Wait until you have about an 1/8 to 1/4-inch of liquid wax in the bottom of the pan. Then use some tweezers or tongs to put a few cotton pads at the bottom of the pan, all in one layer so they don’t overlap. In a few seconds, they’ll absorb a good bit of the wax, but just enough to coat the outside. Take them out and let them cool on a sheet of wax paper completely before tossing them into a zipper bag. That’s all there is to it.
The next time you need to start a fire quickly, just grab one of the pads, tear it open partially to
expose the cotton fibers inside, and light it up. You’ll get a slow-burning fire-starter that won’t go out before the rest of your kindling has caught on too. The tip was inspired by the old cotton balls and vaseline trick, and is clearly intended for camping or emergency kits, but we can’t see why it wouldn’t work for any kind of fire you might need to light, whether it’s a fireplace or even a charcoal grill. What do you think? How would you improve it? Let me know in the comments below.
