A camping stove with a griddle – a flat iron pan that fits onto the stove – gives you the chance to deal with foods like canned meals, pancakes, smaller sausages and meats that a regular stove might not be able to handle.
Charcoal camp stoves with a griddle come in two varieties. The first has the griddle built into the stove, while the second uses a griddle that slides into the stove, but comes with other types of cooking surfaces. If you opt for a charcoal stove, you’ll need to purchase the coals in advance of your trip, but you can use any type of charcoal. You’ll also want to bring extra charcoal with you since the amount in the stove will only last for one cooking session.
Propane camping stoves with a griddle are more popular than charcoal because the attached can of propane lasts longer than a bag of charcoal. Some have the griddle placed on the side away from the burners with an additional heat source underneath the griddle, which allows you to use the burners and griddle at the same time or only use one at a time. Other models use two burners on the main part of the stove, with the griddle placed directly beside the burners. This type of stove uses one main heat source, which heats all burners and the griddle at the same time.
Do It Yourself
If you’re looking for something even more convenient to carry, then you should consider a do-it-yourself method by using a griddle pan like you would use in your home and a campfire. Made of cast iron or aluminum, the pan has a flat surface and two carrying handles. The pan slides directly onto the fire where it heats up slowly until you’re ready to use it. You simply put your food in the pan, which you place back on the fire. This is best for camping in remote areas accessible only by long hikes that make carrying one of the heavier propane or charcoal stoves less than ideal.
A few versions of griddle stoves come with legs. These stoves otherwise work exactly the same as their tabletop versions, with the advantage that you can set it up in any location. You also have the option of purchasing a stove with a work-space beside it or extra storage underneath the table.
Avoid smoking around the stove. Ensure that the stove is put together properly and that there are no leaks in the line or tank. Parents should also be alert when small children are around; they can easily burn themselves on the griddle portion, which stays hot even after the stove is turned off.
If the idea of having sex on a beach, imbibing nothing but wine, appetizers and dessert and avoiding children like the plague is your idea of a great vacation, you’ll be ready to pack a bathing suit (or not) and take a leave of absence from your job for an erotic romp on the wild side at a hedonism resort. It’s possible to find a destination that caters to middle-aged folks and fits you like a glove if you follow the tips in this article. Just don’t forget to leave your inhibitions and laptop at home, because hedonism resorts are designed to make your fantasies come true, one erotic experience at a time.
Shop around for the best deals. There are chains of hedonism-style resorts that are marketed under one brand name (e.g., Sandals, Hedonism) and independents that are owned and operated as franchises or by individuals seeking a single venue on which to lavish their time and attention. Consider more than just price and age demographics when you choose from these types of accommodations.
Get recommendations. Have your middle-aged friends holidayed at a hedonism resort? Did they come away with very few photos but plenty of racy memories? That’s where you want to go for your getaway. Ask your friends about everything from cleanliness to food and weather to atmosphere. The goal here is to get away—really away—yet know that a management team is nearby to solve dilemmas that have been known to arise even during the most idyllic vacation.
Connect with travel agents, even if you don’t intend to book your hedonism-focused trip with them (though many are in a position to get you better deals than you might find on the Internet). These folks know where middle-aged clients have had terrific experiences and the places to avoid.
Check with the State Department to make certain locations you’re considering aren’t dangerous to visit. Traveling outside the United States isn’t the carefree experience it was in the past. The government monitors trouble spots so tourists can travel with full knowledge of what to expect in different parts of the world. If you have concerns about this, focus your search for the perfect hedonism resort catering to middle-aged adults within the 50 states.
Narrow down your top picks to get an accurate assessment of the demographic picture each resort paints. Finding yourself on-site with a predominant mix of young couples, each of whom looks suspiciously around the ages of your children, can be a downer for middle-age travelers. Since the objective of a trip to a hedonism resort is to abandon one’s inhibitions, learning the age range of a resort’s populace is nearly as important as getting the privacy you seek.
Eschew the most extreme resorts on your list if you want to go wild but have been known to put checks and balances on your behaviors when push comes to shove. If the thought of nude bathing makes your pulse rate jump but you know that even a couple of glasses of wine couldn’t get you to strip down and step into the hot tub with your pals, you can still go crazy by finding a middle-aged destination that offers you the chance to don a thong or a skimpy Speedo. Don’t pay extra for nude beaches when the chances you’ll skinny-dip are iffy.
Feel free to negotiate your package once you’ve made a final choice. Speak with sales and marketing staff. Ask about specials and amenities by playing the research card. If you’ve found a hedonism resort on Jamaica that has everything you want but the crowd is simply too young, contact others in the area. Tell them what you’ve been offered and see if you can build another day’s stay or a massage into the package as an incentive for switching venues (which you intend to do anyway).
Find out if the hedonism resort you’ve chosen offers a frequent stay program. Once you walk on the wild side and realize that the term “middle-age” really is relative, you might never again be satisfied with touring museums and churches. After all, you’ve earned those birthdays and the right to call your own shots—dressed or not so much.
EGGS……have you ever thought about using fresh eggs for anything , but cooking and baking?
Nooooo?…….Well, I am here to show you 5 smart ways…… 5 different ways to use EGGS…..so lets get CRACK-IN’, shall we?
#1 Having problems with puffy eyes?…..crack an egg into a bowl and rub the inside of the shell gently with your finger. Apply the clear film onto the puffy under-eye area. Let it dry and gently rinse with cool water.
#2 Grow Beautiful & Healthy Plants……keep your leftover eggshells and once you have few just crush the eggshells and sprinkle them over the soil. The calcium in the eggshells will help your plants grown…..plus sharp edges of the eggshells also act as perfect pest repellent.
#3 Enjoy Black Coffee Without Cream & Bitter Taste……if you are trying to cut down on calories, but you just can’t bring yourself to drink your coffee without cream or milk……just add 1 teaspoon of dry crushed eggshells into your coffee grounds before brewing.The calcium carbonate in eggshells will neutralize the acid in coffee grounds and the result will be smooth coffee without the strong bitter taste.
#4 Give Tired Leather a New Life……if your leather purse or shoes are looking tired and scruffy give it a new life with little help from egg white. In a bowl separate egg white from egg yolks. Use dry cloth to apply egg whites onto the leather in circular motions.The protein in egg whites will give your old tired leather a new shine.
#5 Plug a Leaky Car Radiator…..no this will not fix your leaky radiator, but it will give you few days or running car till you can get your car fixed…..pour 1 egg white into the radiator (the coolant opening) right after turning the car off. The heat from engine will cook the egg white and the solid particles will sink into holes and will block the leak TEMPORARILY.
How about you? Do you have any smart ways to use EGGS….other then for cooking or baking?
