    If you prepare the toilette dispenser like the other: Starting from the center of the roll,
    so the toilette dispenser would run better.
    First you have to remove the hard paper roll, from the inside of the toilette paper roll.
    And then start with the inside beginning of the roll.

    Wow! It appears that you and I have completely different ideas about camping! When we go camping, we go minimal: no antsy-fancy salads and wipes and chairs and STUFF. Certainly, we have equipment, but no modern tech or luxury items. To us, camping is roughing it, communing with nature and being one with the African bush. This was our most ambitious and longest one: The distance on the main roads is 2 150 km or 1 330 miles, but the path we took extended it to around 3 000 km or 1864 miles. It took us a cool fifteen months to complete. On this particular trip we generally cooked on open fires, but used a small gas stove in inclement weather or when in the forests. We had a great deal of fun, catching fish and cooking them and I taught my wife a great deal of what I know about nature. See these: and The dark creatures are blue wildebeeste (pronounced vil-der-bee-erst-e and not wilder beasts). The tall, striped antelope with the corkscrew horns are Kudu, also known as the "ghosts of the veld" (pronounced "felt"), because they are so shy and secretive. We don't normally take dogs with us, but in these instances we did have dogs. As can be seen, they are completely at home with all kind of animals, including wild ones and are never tempted to chase them, even if they come charging across under the dogs' very noses. That is how in tune we are with nature.
    We go camping to get away from the trappings of civilisation, so we don't drag it with us.

    Love these tips. My family will be going on a 14 day road trip over 4000 miles total & I absolutely am going to do the soup & salad hack in the mason jars. I actually found 6 cases of Mason jars recently in my basement of my newly purchased home. I was trying to find different ways to use them, aside from decorating them or for drinks and this is perfect!

    such a delightful video and informative..Thank you for sharing !

    the little containers from applesauce fit into the top of the mason jar without falling in. You can put one in, put some dressing in, then put the lid on as usual. no need to buy separate containers. May need the wide mouth jars, i forget, but I have the set up downstairs, just never did it! lol

    Tip for the toilet paper: you can remove the center carton and then pull from there the paper. Then it’s easier for pulling up. My mom used to do this since I was a kid. 🙂
    I am now in my 40‘s 😀

    I loved this video! It was so helpful. Did your eggs keep cool in just a cooler?

  8. Gloria Moore April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Thanks for explaining clearly but not rambling. You get to the point.
    Also, good tips.👍

    Wow!!! It is so beautiful where you were camping. Once I'm done being pregnant with #2 I can't wait to get back out there again. The place I get my PJs from actually just released this baby sleeping bag that I am eager to try

    HEY! Come and see us! We will be open in March and are planning our Grand Opening in April. CKS is quiet, safe and perfect for Boondockers who like having their own space. 40 Acres of peace and quiet! @t

    The mason jar ideas are completely retarded. They look nice but a more flat container would be more user friendly…

  12. TJ Wash April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Good tips. For camping, I’d put the salads in zip lock bags with a snack size bag of dressing inside. Mason jars are heavy and non-collapsible. For camping it’s great to have containers that “disappear” when you’re done leaving you more space

    I love your video

  14. Tony Anderson April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Just came across your YouTube channel. I'm impressed! Keep it up!

  15. Jon Regalado April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    What camping area is that?? That so amazing.. can you please tell me the location. Thanks a bunch

  16. Annelie Elisabeth Molin April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    One shall not leave shit and toilet paper in nature, pick it up. It is disgusting for those coming after you. And nature is not your personal garbage disposal. Something for your next hack…

  17. jplobotomy April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    you don't cook those noodles in hot water!! they are meant to be 'cooked' with cold water.

  18. kerr lawson April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Holiday looks fantastic, lovely family, but wait… no photos of the kids eating the jars of non food you made? Nobody using the insect repellents you made? Nobody using anything you made, interesting….. the eggs and tomatoes looked good though, but you didn’t make them………

  19. Kena Beltran April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    One thing you can do when camping is take a bucket or trash can, put a trash bag in and you can put a toilet seat or something soft around the edges and BOOM! Toilet

  20. Griselda Orozco April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Omg the kiddo is sooooo adorable😍

  21. blairbushproject April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Lemongrass attracts bugs. It is a lure for honey bees.

  22. Cody Potter April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    If my gf did all this goofy shit with Mason jars, I'd be a little annoyed. Takes up way too much space. It's way too heavy. Gotta cook when you're camping. 🏕️

  23. HouseM0nkey April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Wow I am in awe of your skills. Well done.

  24. Nerile N April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Going camping, and I don’t know why but the idea of it makes me depressed as soon as my fiancé mentions it, I’m not some spoiled princess, love nature, and can be quite simple and do all kinds of things but for Somme reason this is not making me happy at all 🙄😥 this video helps tho, thanks xxx

  25. Darlene Wilkinson April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    When you make the bug repellent add the oils after the meted wax and coconut oil has cooled then add oil. The integrity of the oil breaks down when warm.

  26. Sonja M April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    I love when you do these types of videos!!!! esp when you use essential oils !

  27. Vanessa Chavez April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Love how Oliver is being the videographer ..too cute, thanks for the tips.

  28. Myheart2yours April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    How did the lotion bars work for you as bug repellant ? My kiddos are allergic to mosquitos and swell huge so I am considering doing this… Usually I do a diy spray with tea tree oil because it is really good for keeping ticks off as well.

  29. Ana Flores April 23, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    We have a camping trip coming…I love the Mason jar food prep…you said use within 24 hours, is the cooler good to storage them with enough ice for longer!?
