* use Doritos as kindling
it’s almost officially summer
and for those of you who enjoy camping or just a good bonfire,
here’s a hack that’s a win-win in my book.
*(important note: don’t forget to hide them from the family/friends, as they may disappear)
Fire won’t start? Not a problem! We got you! If you don’t want to spend money on expensive fire starters go ahead and stop by your local grocery store and pick up a bag of Doritos. These dense, oily, corn chips are combustible, ideal kindling for starting a fire, and will last for a long time. Bonus Tip: We heard that if you get the Flaming Hot Doritos they light up even faster!
“the online music magazine pitchfork once wrote that
i would collaborate with anyone for a bag of doritos.”
it’s national toasted marshmallow day
and all i can think of
is my very favorite dessert –
introduced in the united states years ago
by the scouts of america
is still much loved by so many.
actual marshmallow health and safety tips from the boy scouts of america guidebook:
When roasting your marshmallows, a light brown skin is sufficient. Having the marshmallow engulfed in flames may cause panic and flinging of hot marshmallow onto someone.
Have a properly stocked first-aid kit available (and have trained first-aid Scouts and adults on hand).
Roasting marshmallows can be fun, but care should be taken so that participants do not become injured by burns or punctures.
If you are on a campout, thoroughly clean your hands and face before hitting the sleeping bag. The smell of marshmallows and chocolate are known to attract various animals.
S’mores are great for an evening snack or cracker barrel, just before bedtime. On campouts, the sugar rush is just enough so that the youth will sleep soundly through the night.
“my favorite vegetable is the marshmallow.”

“every contrivance of man, every tool, every instrument, every utensil, every article
designed for use, of each and every kind, evolved from very simple beginnings.”
it was camping day today and when the children checked out the cool bear cub our room, i was reminded of the different approaches that boys and girls each have to life. as the girls went up to it, they gently petted it and commented, ‘it’s so soft!’ as the boys approached it, they all bent their heads down to look under its legs and asked, ‘does it have a penis?’ and herein lies the difference –
