$10 Rocket Stove - DIY
Since my fiance is going to go camping for a week with his buds, I thought, that it would be cool to get some ideas on how he can be a smart ass and show the others how to be awesome. This $10 diy is just the think I was looking for. So while the guys are fussing with vacu-seal meals, my man can throw this rocket stove together and teach these guys a lesson! You will need 21 bricks, a metal wire mesh about 8" square and a stovetop grate that you can find at a dollar store. First, take one brick and chop in half. On a flat surface, begin arranging the bricks: three regular and one half. Add a metal wire mesh above first layer. Stack a second layer of bricks on top of mesh: three regular and one half. The third layer and up will use only whole bricks, stacking in a complete circle. Lay the kindling inside the hole directly above the metal wire mesh. Although the brick is blocking the bottom hole, simply move it to the side to allow air movement into the fire. This is the easiest makeshift rocket stove, and the cheapest out there that you can make for yourself. Whether it's for camping or if you find yourself in an emergency situation, use this method to create sustainable fire and cooking center when you need it. It's far safer than an ordinary campfire and is easier to control. After you've built this, you're going to want to relax from being the coolest, smartest, best, most awesome camping pro amongst your friends and family.

Over the River and Through the Woods
Instead of going to just another amusement park or another social event, why can't we just to northern Cali, Oregon and camp? Walk the nearby towns, hand in hand with no cell phones? Why can't we go hiking or take a trail to a hidden waterfall and spend the day reading and tanning/relaxing together? Spend the nights cuddled up in front of a camp fire and stare up at the stars? Don't even have to talk. Just feel each other's body language. There's so much communication that's silent. Or if we do talk, talk about anything and everything. Tell me your fears. Tell me your insecurities. Tell me what you love about me. Tell me how I can love you better. Tell me everything you want to accomplish. Tell me everything you wish was real. Where did everything fall apart? Tell me why you can't open up anymore? Tell me you love me and you'll never leave.... It'll be our own little world. We can build it anew, just us two, even if it's just for a few hours. I'm extremely surprised and saddened by how many people have never seen an unmolested sky. You need to take it upon yourself to travel for away from all cities, away from small towns, into the small pockets of pure nature and just sit there for a night. Listen to it. Look up and see how small we really are. Look up and see the universe on display. Stars galore. It's quite breathtaking and humbling and relaxing and beautiful. It's easily the best and most enjoyable way to calm yourself down and regain clarify of thought.
