Human Gear

As some of my long time readers may know we are a camping family. We love to be out in nature in our pop up camper. In fact we even have a new growing forum about camping all over America. Well when out on the road for 10 days at a time it is obviously a must that we have supplies on hand. Recently I had a chance to review a couple of products for a company called Human Gear. Founded in 2007 in San Fransisco, California they are out to make real gear for real humans. Currently they make 4 great products prefect for your travel needs. The GoToob I think is probably my favorite. Available in 3 different sizes it can hold anywhere from 1.25 ounce to 3 ounces and made of food grade silicone they are easy to squeeze. My favorite part is the moveable ring on the outside that allows you to select which product you have inside. I also had the chance to review both sizes of the GoTubb. With it's easy open design it can be opened with just one hand.
While the only thing I could think to use the small Tubb for was a daily vitamin supply and some spices after reading the suggested uses I have many more ideas now for these. These are not designed for liquids but are water resistant to help keep whatever you store a little safer. The big Tubb has been great for keep some small dog treats, medications, chopped onions and more. The other two products made by Human Gear are the GoCup and the CapCap. If you are interested in these products they can be found at many retailers both online and in stores. For a list of who is selling them you can head HERE.

I love these little gadgets! They are perfect for throwing in items. Often when I am camping, I am not expecting to get wet . . . and always do! Thanks for sharing.

Great gadget, camping & rain always ends up going hand in hand, it seems. Also think these would be great in my atv pack for the times we get caught in rain...thnks for info!
That is a neat little gadget! I am a gadget person!

Sounds like something we could use here.
These are neat! I would use them to put my jewelry in for traveling- small earrings, backs, rings, etc. if they fit!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
