    There's got to be a million of them...
    SO? What can you share with other Camping Babblers?
    This is what I use to mark my black guy lines when in base camp.

    I use the yellow swimming pool noodles. I cut them into three sections. You can get them dirt cheap at the good ol Dollar Store. They are especially good for day time use.

    I use the MSR tabs when I'm in the interior. They easily pick up any kind of light.

    You can also use these too.

    This is what I use for a bear bell outside my sleeping tent.


    The old fashion dinner clanger. I also use it to summon the group in the case of emergencies or just the call for dinner.

    I use motion lights in the dining area and on large trees to light up the area.

    Thats some great ideas! Thank you.
  3. Hi. Thanks for the outlined life hacks, but personally I use Energizer metal led torch to light up the area. The motion lights seemed uncomfortable and cumbersome to me because I kept forgetting it when I was going out camping, and the led torch was tiny and always with me in my tackle box.
