Things You Think Are A Great Idea But Are Really NOT! We have all walked into the camping section at REI, Cabela’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, etc. and became overwhelmed at the number of items they have there!  I will admit, some of it seems pretty neat, until you really think about it.  Some things are obviously useless, while others just don’t work the way they are supposed to.  But never fear!  I have compiled a list of these useless (or maybe less useful) items that you can really save your money and precious weight in your pack on.  ...
