In The Trouble With Tulip Jo recomends dipping match heads in candle wax to make the matches waterproof.

And speaking of fire, bring along the perfect fire starters:
  • cotton balls dipped in petroleum jelly - store this in a plastic bag to contain the mess
  • save the lint from the dryer. It's flammable and makes perfect fire starter, and best of all, it's free!

More camping and picnic ideas coming your way!

Thanks for blogging! Just read the 1st two books in the Smart Chicks series and am off to get the 3rd (and sadly, final).

I love the match head idea -so simple, but so clever - of course wax melts and then exposes the flammable part, I just never would have thought of it!
