Campsites are never level!

Hate trying to cook outside if the table or barbecue isn't level. Bacon grease all moves to one side of the skillet, or the heat on the barbecue becomes uneven if it is not level. After fighting with trying to find just the right size objects to level things out, I came up with this idea. Went to my friendly Wallmart and bought 6 door stops (3 for a dollar). Now, leveling tables or barbecues is no sweat and the are infinitely adjustable and easy to fine tune the height!

Nice idea. I'm going to Wal-Mart right now. We are leaving for the lake next Monday. There are a ton of things I need. (However, if it really is a ton I'll be overweight.)

Better yet.. seems one pass per site with a dozer would solve the problem and make the world so much nicer...

How clever. Thanks for the tip. I've got several of those rubber door stops when my parent's house sold. They're in a box somewhere in my basement. I'll have to go dig them up.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Another use: We use the door stops to keep our sliding trays inside our pantry cabinets closed during travel. Works great!
