Make a lantern out of a JIF container? Ummmmmm.
Battery powered... shouldn't be an issue right?
#3 Has been dis-proven... http://www.snopes.com/photos/food/mountaindew.asp
...but some of them are good
As an avid camper some ideas on this list are not bad, but some are just plain terrible. Considering the list is on Buzzfeed, it should be assumed that campers using these ideas are those that need to take the comforts of home with them - which I understand, as I was once one of those kinds of camper.
In my opinion... here's a break down of these ideas.
TERRIBLE1 - impractical due to bulk3 - hoax4 - Uhhh... 5 - familiarization should include Giant Hogweed and other nasties8 - less bulky to squish the roll and shove it into a ziploc bag10 - or you could just preseason all your food... after all, you made bread in a can!11 - or invest in 2 one-person sleeping bags that can zip together12 - get a real hammock, and get away from your car.18 - BULK! guh!22 - good idea, but not in a glass jar23 - why bother when you're doing #2 on this list?24 - bulky... but rather clever27 - once again... #2, plus heat source that close to soft plastic??31 - BLEGH!! wtf?41 - How exactly is this a hack?
NEUTRAL26 - Using a food substance to start a fire? Might as well use powdered coffee whitener32 - or you could just precook your grain-based foods at home34 - or... don't get lost? 35 - or... don't take the kids?36 - is the crate necessary? 40 - great as an emergency, but can be dangerous under some circumstances
GOOD IDEAS17 - pro: bar doesn't go away gross, con: could take up more space19 - that's actually very clever21 - Altoids cans and old script bottles are useful for much more than that... good for cigarette butt containers, match holders, sewing needles, line and fishing hooks.29 - If you really need to have cheese... sure.30 - ONE OF THE BEST IDEAS ON THIS LIST. Seriously. 33 - works for muffin mix as well. 38 - camping towels typically are microfiber, at least the kind you get at a real camping store (i.e. MEC, LeBaron, REI)39 - keeps your ice and water supply clean - don't forget to ditch any cardboard like a 6pack carton
