These might not be survival tips per se, but they will come mighty handy next time you plan on visiting the great outdoors. We've put together an amazing list of Simple Survival tips that will make your next camping trip that much more enjoyable!

Keeping those pesky mosquitoes at bay has always been an issue, but you can make sure that they stay away if you bring some dryer sheets along with you. Rub a sheet on all of your exposed areas and stick one under your shirt to mask the odor of mosquito prey. Then just sit back and enjoy nature.

If you are ever in a situation where food is scarce and you really feel like a fish dinner, all you will need is the tab of a soda can and some dental floss. The making of fishing hook out of a soda tab is a bit tricky, so make sure you pay close attention to that part of the video. Tie a good measure of floss on your resulting hook and give it a few tugs to make sure your catch doesn’t run off on you. As for bait, always look for worms in the moist soil. Fish love those.

Need to build a bonfire to cook that fish you just caught? Empty a big can or any other metal container you find. Cut out the bottom and the rim around it, then try to cut 8 equal slivers all around. Bend every other sliver inwards to create legs for your bonfire. Toss a roll of TP or any other burning material you’ve got and light it up. It should be enough to cook a decent dinner.

When in a pinch for a candle, and this goes for when the lights go out as well, is to light up a wax crayon. The melting wax will saturate the paper wrapping, which in turn will act as a wick.

Here’s an extra tip for you: next time you empty a pack of TicTacs, don’t toss it. You can keep a few matches and a sliver of the striking panel from the original packaging inside, so next time it rains, those will keep dry.

Be sure to share these tips with your adventurous friends, because you never know when they might need them.
