Hobo stew is great for camp cooking




Place hot dog through the end of the stick or rod.

Wrap the dog in a spiral motion with the biscuit.

Place over fire and let biscuit cook.

This is a great way to have a corn dog without the cornmeal on top.

I was in charge of another camping trip (after I had moved up to Girl Scout assistant leader) to build a latrine (hole in the ground toilet).

So, I took the gang out and we did our stuff. But, a couple of these crafty Girl Scouts covered the hole without my knowledge.

That evening, they said they could not find the hole we had dug. I told them I could remember that awful job, so out I went to locate the hole for those, I thought, poor lost kids who couldn’t find the toilet.

I found it alright. My shoes stank so bad for the next two days, I couldn’t even wear them.

The moral to this story is: Never trust your memory with a bunch of smarter-than-thou teenagers. You will wind up in the ----hole every time.


I could not let you leave without telling you about the best camp-ground food of all time.

Simple go to Walmart and buy a smores cooker (it is in the camping secton).

Place one graham cracker on the bottom, one chocolate bar and one marshmallow in the middle and another graham cracker on top.

Close the lid and place in fire for about 3 to 4 minutes.

You also can make pizza pies with this utensil.

Happy camping, and oyes, don’t forget the bug spray. The bugs go camping along with you.
