Video on Making a Camping Bread Toaster

I wanted toasted bread; I made a toaster using tin cans. Normally I hold bread over the flame, with this system I invented I do not burn my fingers.

I enjoy making these travel tips videos. I would love to record one video daily; however, it is difficult to find a person to help make the video.

How about, "Andy the Hobo Traveler's MacGyver tips for better travel." as a title within your website to reference your video travel tips. :)

Dear Andy
love your up dates just watched your Youtube 'toast' video, really great just loved it, would be good if you could do more youtube videos, i will be traveling back to a farm north of borneo, so will use the same ideas. thanks alot, best wishes,

I would make 100's of Videos, one per day if I could figure out a way. One of the reason I gave up my anonymous nature was to do Tips. The camera needs to move close, far, etc, needs to follow me around.

Generally the average person I meet is not capable of recording a video properly, my friend upstairs was smart, so I got two videos made before he left.

I would love to have a pro come and help for a month.

Mom Some things never change Andy. You were giving us tips and trying to find different ways to do things when you were a wee boy and the only difference is that now it is big boy ideas and your dad and I enjoyed this one. I remember once when you dug a trench, made a wood foundation and poured a cement sidewalk to your treehouse when you were 5 years old. When you were about 28 you said you would pour a cement basketball court for your dad and proceeded to tell your brother in laws the best way to do it that it would last and by golly it is still there.

That little can opener is called a P38. I was in the Army back long ago and we all used them.

One major problem, the interior of cans have a plastic coating that contains BPA. The coating is OK for pasteurization temps (140F) but breaks down at higher temperatures. BPA is a hormone imitator that can cause cancer and birth defects. You are poisoning yourself using this method and you have just invited others to do the same.

Way to go Andy.

Hey Andy,

Check this out:

A great and inexpensive product to take pictures/video of yourself.



We took one can slightly bigger (held pineapoples in it), one end was totally gone (to get the pineapples out), and punched about 6 holes in the other end with an ice pick. We put the 6 hole side down on the burner, and slightly to one side of the burner. My wife toasted her bread, did real good.

We have always been looking for a simple way to toast marshmellows (and make a Samore(sp?) with chocolate chips, and graham crackers. On just the burner top, it is too hot for your hand with a regular fork, and just can't get the heat low enough without burning the marshmellow.

The upside down can works great! A regular fork works, and the marshmellows roast very nicely. And my hand is not near the flame.

Thanks for original idea.

In Christ,
Alan Berry
