  • How to pack a cooler

    Whenever I go out camping I tend to just through everything into the cooler box and hope for the best. If you follow this basic advice, you will learn how to pack a cooler the proper way #MidasOutdoors Purchase all of your camping goods from Randburg Midas’s #SummerPromo valid 23 Nov-31 Dec 2015. And most importantly, the more space you free up means there is more space for beer! Step One: The Cooler Before you cram your drinks and grilling essentials into your cooler, give it a thorough cleaning. Remove any dirt and mildew that has built up since its last use to prevent contamination. Stay away from harsh chemicals, though. A simple combination of soap and water will do the trick. Step Two: Beverages Cover the bottom of your cooler with a layer of ice prior to adding any beverages. Place all of your beverages on top of the ice, and cover with an additional layer of ice to make sure they stay cooler, longer. Keeping your beverages at the bottom of your cooler will help them stay cold despite the warmth of the summer sun. Step Three: Meat Products: Just like you did with your beverages, cover the width of the cooler with a layer of ice before you pack your meat products. Stack your meat products on top of the ice, and surround it with ice on all sides. By putting your meats in the middle of your cooler, you can prevent them from spoiling. Be sure all meat is properly packaged in leak proof containers and bags or placed in a separate cooler if necessary. Always keep meat and poultry separate from foods that will be eaten raw. Step Four: Fruits and Vegetables Store your fruits and vegetables in plastic, air-tight containers before you pack them. This will save space and maintain freshness. Place the containers on top of your meat products, and cover them with ice to keep them cool. Step Five: Snacks and Misc. Items Pack any snacks or miscellaneous items in air-tight plastic bags, and place them on top of all other items in your cooler. This will provide easy access, because let’s face it: everyone needs to get to those chips in a hurry. Step Six: More Ice this may seem a bit redundant, but we’re serious about ice. Fill your cooler to the brim with ice, and pack it in tightly…

  • Use your watch as a compass

    Use your watch as a compass so if you camping and you get lost or disoriented don’t worry, your good old watch will get you on the right path again #MidasOutdoors For all your camping and outdoor needs, Midas Randburg has you covered. It is always advisable that you take a tool box and some emergency vehicle spares should you breakdown on your way to the camp site www.midasrandburg.co.za | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg. To use your watch as an approximate compass outside of the tropics in the northern hemisphere, hold the watch horizontal and point the hour hand at the sun. Half way between that point and the twelve o’clock mark on your watch points to the south. For example, if it is eight o’clock, point the 8 on the watch face at the sun and south would be at the ten o’clock position. If it is four o’clock, point the 4 on the watch face at the sun and south would be in the two o’clock position. At midday (twelve o’clock), the hour hand itself should point south. The method of halving the angle between the hour hand and the twelve o’clock watch position is required since the earth rotates once in a day, but the hour hand goes around the clock face twice. In the southern hemisphere, hold the watch horizontal and point the twelve o’clock mark in the direction of the sun. The north-south line is half way between the hour hand and the twelve o’clock mark. Using a watch to determine direction within the tropics is more complicated, since there are two solar maxima. The sun may lie to the north or south (or at midday be directly overhead), depending upon the time of the year. Because time on our planet is divided into 24 broad time zones, the sun is not normally directly south or at its highest point in the sky at exactly midday. The watch-as-compass method is therefore an approximate guide to direction only. The most exact method of finding direction without using a compass is to mark and measure the shadows that occur around midday. The shortest shadow cast by an object always points exactly north. To find where the sun is on a cloudy day, hold a pencil or stick upright over a light piece of paper or a lighter part of the ground….

  • 7 Camping life hacks

    Learn the 7 Camping life hacks that everyone should know before going camping #MidasOutdoors Come and see us at Midas Randburg for all your camping needs www.midasrandburg.co.za | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 BRAM FISCHER DRIVE RANDBURG. Use sage to repel mosquitoes Place some sage in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos. Liquid soap + cotton balls = no ticks. If you or one of your fellow campers is having trouble with a tick, place the soap-soaked cotton on the tick for 20 seconds. The tick will eventually stop chewing and will come away with the cotton ball. If the tick was attached for a lengthy amount of time you may want to consider keeping it in a container so that you can test it for Lyme disease later. One water bottle will hold eight eggs. By keeping all your eggs in a bottle you save time and hassle. Plus, no need to carry extra bowls or a whisk! Deodorant can be used to combat itchiness.
