Tampons! Assuming that you have never carried a tampon to camping before, you might want to include this in your backpack. Or, if you have them in serendipity inside your carry-on bag. They are very useful like condoms. For one, they can make a DIY fishing bobber that you can quickly construct.Β 

Every tampon has four basic parts: a plastic tube, cotton wadding, string, and an airtight wrapper. Make a fishing bobber by opening the wrapper at one end, take the tampon out, then tie the wrapper closed with a bubble of air inside. If it doesn’t float, don’t worry, you can stuff some of the cotton into the bubble until it does. Tampons can also be used to set fire.Β
