Wrap Meat in Cabbage Leaves While Cooking
When making the shopping list for camp, don't forget to put cabbage on it. Cabbage can be used as a moist and tasty vessel for cooking your meat over a fire. If you want even faster cooking, wrap the meat and cabbage in foil and toss it right in the flame.
Pizza in a Pie Iron

Keeping Seasonings in Straws
One way to ensure that you still have flavorful food is to keep all of your seasonings, wet and dry, in straws. You will need straws and pen caps to complete this. Once the straws are filled and capped, they will last as long as you need.
Pre-make Food and Vacuum Seal It
Save time at the camp ground and pre-make food at home. Once the meal is prepared, vacuum seal it to protect it and ensure flavor until use. Open the packets with either a knife or scissors and prepare over the fire.
Pack bandanas in your backpack. These items can be used for various things, including creating cooling devices. They can even be used for first aid if needed. They are lightweight, so bring as many as needed to keep all members of the group comfortable.

Swing Legs to Warm Feet
Cold feet are not only an uncomfortable situation, but can become a potentially problematic health condition. In order to keep your feet comfortable, warm them by swinging your legs.
