more stupid questions
I never tried toothpaste dots and always just bring a mini-tube of toothpaste with me. How does one make them, exactly? Do you just let them dry out on their own, or do you put them in the oven...

Hobo logic FTW
Yet another thing I forgot to mention about the hobo tent is that around 450g is with two doors, rope, and the space blanket on the inside, and is 2m x 2.5m. A friend of mine came over yesterday...
