A Timely Recommendation From Santa Claus

Camping Tip Of The Day

Storing Camping Equipment

Your camping is a big investment, so here's a camping equipment tip that helps you take care when you store your equipment. Never put away dirty equipment. The dirt can grate against fabric or nylon, eventually rubbing a hole in your tent, tarp, or sleeping bag. Rinse off tents, rain flies, tarps, and other nylon items and let them dry before you pack them away. Hand wash sleeping bags, or at least shake them out and let them air before you carefully store them in their storage bags. Better yet, store it flat so the insulation inside the bag doesn't break down over time Wash and dry all your kitchen camping equipment before you pack it away, and inspect all buckles, webbing, ropes, and stakes before they go back in storage. If you clean and care for your camping equipment every time you use it, it will ensure your camping equipment enjoys and long and happy life.For more Camping tips, visit

Santa recommends banks, not money market funds. Park your money in a safe (FDIC insured) bank instead of a money market fund (which is not guaranteed).

Keep in mind: money market funds actually fluctuate in price, but the companies add money to make up for deviations… at least for the moment. Money market funds are actually very short term bond funds. Bonds can, and do, go down. If rates rise, it could get nasty. A few years ago, a major money market fund “broke the buck” and lost savers millions.

Capital One, a U.S. based bank, features:

  • Higher yields.
  • Safety (FDIC insured)
  • No minimum balance.
  • NO fees.
  • Join millions of savers in seconds.

Money market funds are ultimately going to “float” their NAV (share price), “breaking the buck”, to the chagrin of millions. Don’t tumble down that slippery slope.

Try Capital One without any risk.


Ho, ho, ho!
