Camping Tip: Seasoning Straws

Don’t sacrifice flavor when you’re camping! But you don’t have to bring the salt and pepper shakers either.

Seasoning-straws-FB

Using straws and a heated flame simply make up seasoning straws! Pepper, salt, cajun spice … whatever spices you need. They’re easy to make and take up no room at all. When you’re ready to use just snip off the end and season.

Cut straws in half to make them small for one use, or fill large straws. The straws melted together and sealed easily. Took no time at all to make these up.







Camping Tip: Travel Coffee Bags

Travel coffee bags … because I can’t leave my Starbucks behind when camping.

Coffee-on-the-Go

All you need are coffee filters, coffee grounds, and dental floss. I only used the red because it was festive … and festive works since we’re in Santa Claus, Indiana. :p







Camping Tip: Treat Tackle Box

Camping Tip Tuesday: Treat Tackle Box

Treat-tackle-box

These would be great for long trips. Because my four year old can’t decide which snack she wants … so having multiple options in this box is perfect!

As long as they don’t eat it all at once! :p







7 Reasons to Camp During Fall

Our top reasons that you should be camping during the fall season. Seven of them because that’s my lucky number. 🙂

Fall-at-Lake-Rudolph

  1. Weather. Um, hello? Cooler weather! I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather camp when it’s cool and I can enjoy sitting around the fire roasting marshmallows, and not be sweltering hot!
  2. Better Rates. Many campgrounds and RV resorts drop their rates during the fall and offer discounts. We have a Fall Season Rate.
  3. Scenery. Beautiful orange, red, and yellow leaves. Love those colors and that slight crisp in the air!
  4. Halloween Activities. Lots of campground and resorts offer fun, Halloween-themed activities. In our case, seven weekends of Halloween activities!
  5. Fewer Crowds. Less people are camping during the fall seasons so you’ll encounter fewer crowds. Unless of course you visit us when our Halloween Weekends are in full swing. 🙂 If you’d like to visit during a more quiet time, we suggest coming during the week … Sundays through Wednesdays.
  6. Fewer Bugs. Normally there are less pesky bugs during the fall camping season.
  7. Fall Food. Wonderful fall comfort food. Think warm Apple Crisp, Candied Apples, and One Skillet Chili.






What To Know: Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac

Poison ivy, oak and sumac … chances are that if you’re a camper you’ve come across one, or all, of these plants. They’re common throughout the US, except in Hawaii and Alaska.

Here’s a little information about each type. Knowing what you’re looking for is half the battle in avoiding these itchy plants.

Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy

Technically known as Toxicodendron radicans, poison ivy produces urushiol, a clear liquid in the sap of the plant. That is what causes all that unpleasant itching and the painful rash.

It’s not actually a true ivy. It can be found as a vine, as a shrub, and as a climbing vine that grows on trees or other plants.

Over 350,000 people are affected by poison ivy annually in the US.

Poison Oak

Poison Oak

Technically known as Toxicodendron diversilobum, poison oak is a woody vine or shrub in the sumac family. It is known for causing itching and allergic rashes, after contact by touch or smoke inhalation.

Contact with skin first causes itching. It may then evolve into dermatitis with inflammation, colorless bumps, severe itching, and blistering. Does not sound like a picnic to me!

Poison Sumac

Poison Sumac

Technically known as Toxicodendron vernix, poison sumac is a woody shrub or small tree. All parts of the plant contain urushiol just as poison ivy does. When it is burned, inhaling the smoke may cause the rash to appear on the lining of the lungs. Yikes!

Poison sumac is far more potent and toxic than it’s other poison counterparts. Your skin may have quite painful and swelling blisters.

Other good information …

Dogs and cats do not suffer the allergenic effects of poison ivy, sumac or oak like humans do. So that’s good news. Now the bad news … they can transmit the oil of these plants to you if it is on their fur. Your pet can bring you poison ivy, oak or sumac, even though you haven’t been in the woods. If you think they’ve been in contact with these plants, give them a bath (wear long gloves!) with Dawn dish washing liquid and use lots of cool water.

Poison ivy, oak and sumac rashes usually develops within a week of exposure and can last anywhere from one to four weeks.
