The 5 Best Tubes Of Glue For Shoes That You Can Use

For a long time, I was always taught, by my father, to save as much money as humanly possible. This meant fixing things when they break, instead of buying new ones and fixing them yourself instead of taking them to a shop.

Step Up Your Camping Food Game: The Ultimate Campfire Mac And Cheese Recipe

Since moving to the USA, my cousins (who live in Oklahoma) and I would talk about going camping on the mountains. We decided to do it this weekend and I was assigned to food detail. The easiest part was we were car camping, so we just loaded and brought all sorts of gear, coolers, and all the bottles of beer we want.

Don’t be fooled by the term “car camping”; it doesn't mean that you just pull up to the campsite and just sleep on the car. Instead of camping in the mountains with only what you can carry, you can pack as much as you want as long as it fits in your car.

The 5 Best Lightweight Backpacking Chairs of 2018

Do you love to go camping? Sitting by an open fire while enjoying the scenery of the great outdoors with the company of your loved ones is such a humbling experience. Likewise, relaxing on your lightweight backpacking chair at the shore, letting the waves touch your toes is utterly satisfying. The latter always makes me want to ask. “hey boss! Care to approve my leave? I want to go camping!”.


Most backpacking chairs nowadays have a reputation for being awkward, bulky and heavy. The average backpacking chair can weigh up to 12 lbs or more! You certainly won’t want to bring that kind chair.

On the other hand, if you decide to buy the thinner, wobblier option, either your back hurts after just 15 minutes of sitting or it usually falls apart over a short duration of use.
