    Strategically placed pee can deter visits from some animals.

    A large mouth bottle of Gatorade not only refreshes, it replenishes low electrolytes/re hydrates you, allowing for a better night's sleep. It also does double duty as a pee bottle in the middle of the night.

    microfiber towels from harbor freight and pledge furniture polish
    to clean windshield / visors after washing bike spray pledge on windshield wipe off then when you stop and there's bug juice everywhere just spray wait about 30 seconds (get the bug goo creamy soft) and wipe clean


    when the towel is full of bug goo and the lemony goodness of pledge steep in hot water for 5 min. for a delicious lemony flavored protein rich beverage (lmao)




    (I really do use pledge to clean my windshield that part wasn't a joke)

    Not only do I use that as you desribed above, but I use it to shine my whole bike. Been using it to do that for the past 32 years. Great stuff!

    Re: Tips and Tricks

    Lots of good tips here.

    I find the Gatorade bottle doesn't have enuff capacity, go with the 48 oz V8 bottle, same size cap.

    I'm currently using a hose 'n bite valve from a Platypus hydration pack, the cap on the hose screws directly to the water bottle, no need for the bladder, no worries about moss growing in the bladder. Used it extensively on my Mexico trip.

    Penny Stove.

    Tortillas instead of bread for just about all sammich making. Packs tighter and don't "smash."

    Food from anywhere other than camping department is usually cheaper.

    Radar detectors won't save ya.

    Re: Tips and Tricks

    Ill share two of my favorites. Both are related to the fire. The first is the cotton balls dipped in Vaseline trick. Nice and light, wonderful for starting a fire (lots of vids on this on YouTube). I keep a little Ziploc with about ten of them in one of my bags.
    The other one I like is the FIRE BLOW TUBE. Here is the link for where I got mine (other cool stuff here too). It packs down to 14 and opens up to 30. Great for keeping the fire going.

    Bueller? Anybody???
