Essential (and some not so essential) Camping Tips

1. Boil your water in a paper cup

Believe it or not, this works brilliantly. Water acts as a great thermal conductor and as long as it’s under normal atmospheric pressure (15 psi or so), it will not get hotter than 212 degrees in its liquid form. Since paper doesn’t burn until 451 degrees, you can literally take a paper cup, fill it with water, and put it directly on the coals of a fire. Other materials like plastic cups are equally effective, however it is worth keeping in mind that any material that is not directly in contact with water will burn. Your co-campers will be both impressed and envious when you’re supping a cup of cocoa in minutes!
