How to create a hideout

Guinea pigs are prey animals. In the wild, their relatives spend a lot of time hiding from predators. Domestic animals don’t have that worry, but they still retain the desire to hide and feel safe. Here are some ideas for guinea pig hideouts.

A hiding place is an essential item for your guinea pig’s cage. If you have more than one piggy (and that’s always a good idea, since they’re herd animals by nature), you should have one hideout for each pig. You can choose from many options, either store bought or made at home.

Plastic Igloos

How to create a hideout

Plastic igloos, often know as “pigloos,” are a favorite hiding spot for many guinea pigs. Pigloos are sturdy and easy to clean since they’re made from plastic. You can buy them in various colors to match your cage décor. If you have larger or smaller pocket pets, you can buy them in sizes to accommodate everything from a mouse to a ferret to a bunny.

The only downside to pigloos is that some guinea pigs and other pocket pets chew them. If yours is one of them, you’ll have to replace the pigloo periodically.

You may have problems if you have a dominant cavy that bullies its cage mate. Pigloos have only one entrance, so a mean guinea pig can trap its cage mate inside if it wants to be nasty. Avoid this by cutting a hole in the back of the pigloo to make a second entrance/exit.

Wood Houses

How to create a hideout

You can buy cute wood houses in various styles as a hiding place for your guinea pig. Wood is an earth-friendly renewable resource, and it’s also attractive to guinea pigs who like to chew.

Like pigloos, wood hiding houses come in different sizes, so they’re suitable for any pocket pet. They’re especially good for chewing species, but you’ll need to replace the house periodically if you have a critter that likes to do carpentry work.

Although tunnels are primary something for guinea pigs to run through, many piggies like to hide in them as well. Other small animals usually enjoy them as much as piggies do.

Ware Fun Tunnels For Small Animals are solid colored, and longer than the Fun-Nel pieces, so it’s hard to tell if the piggies are in one of those tunnels unless you pick up the piece and feel the weight of a chubby piggy body.

Flexible Sticks

How to create a hideout

You can buy flexible sticks that twist into different shapes suitable for a guinea pig or other pocket pet to use as a hiding place. Some are plain, and some are a little fancier. For example, Super Pet Tropical Fiddle Sticks are brightly colored and are also flavored to encourage chewing. They come in multiple sizes to accommodate all pocket pet types, from tiny to large.

All stick toys need to be replaced if your pet chews them down far enough to expose the underlying metal structure.

Homemade Hiding Places

How to create a hideout

Although there are plenty of options in the pet store, you can make some fun hideouts for your guinea pig with materials you have around your home. For example, like cats, guinea pigs love hiding in paper bags.

You can also use old oatmeal containers or cereal boxes that you tear apart and prop up in an A-frame shape. Let your guinea pig have fun with these items, and pitch them when they get soiled or chewed.

The great thing about these hiding spots is that they’re free, and you can find them around your house.

Head to the north east corner, where there is a guard blocking the doorway. Go into your inventory and choose to Hold a Mighty Banana, then return to the game.

Things You Will Need

Moving or fridge box

Blankets and pillows

Portable DVD player

Pictures or decorations

Everyone needs a place where he can escape the stresses of daily life and where he can feel comfortable. For some people, it may be a bench at a park and others prefer the beach. If outdoor options aren’t available for you or if you just want to make a fun place for you to relax or for kids to enjoy, you can build a hideout in your own room. Making a room hideout requires some basic materials but can be an entertaining experience.

Clean out enough space in your closet to accommodate your hideout needs. For best results, position the hideout between the wall and the closet door so it is out of the way and tougher for others to discover.

Cut out a cardboard partition from a refrigerator box or large moving box using scissors. The partition should be as tall as possible for maximum privacy since it will be placed by the closest door and will provide both an entrance and a fourth wall for your hideout.

Place blankets and pillows on the ground of the hideout so you can sit in there comfortably when you want to. A flashlight will also be needed unless the closet has its own light.

Add a portable DVD player and stereo to give yourself entertainment options. If there is a wall plug nearby, you can use it for power. Otherwise, use battery-powered models. A mini-fridge is another option if you have the space and an outlet to plug it into.

Hang pictures, posters and other decorations in the hideout space to make it as relaxing and cozy for you as possible. You can also paint the wall in the hideout space to differentiate it from the rest of the closet.

Wedge the cardboard partition against the wall when you are not entering or exiting the hideout so it stays blocked off from prying eyes.

How to create a hideout

How to Create a Prepper Hideout by Jeff Thompson for The Organic Prepper

It’s strange to even think of writing a piece about creating prepper hideouts in “The Land of the Free.” Sadly, that freedom has long ago died a bloody death. I think we’re getting much closer to an America akin to the late 1930s Germany. Other countries throughout the world (Australia comes to mind) are already there.

For those who are thinking a “we need to hide our Jewish neighbors” type scenario could quickly unfold again, I’d like to take a moment to give some of my thoughts on how to create a prepper hideout. We need only look at the venom and animosity that is being directed at the unvaccinated to see that this might actually become a necessity in our lifetime.

A hideout is different than a bug-out location, a survival cache, or a safe room. It’s meant to house a person or group of people secretly in the event they are targeted for some reason. Where you will locate this space will vary based on your home, your geography, and other factors.

Let’s talk about what a prepper hideout requires, and what we can glean from history.

The first things a prepper hideout requires are food and water

Without a doubt, this needs to be your #1 priority. Read through any of the diaries of those trapped in Nazi-occupied territory throughout World War II. You’ll see just how large of a presence hunger played in their daily lives. You have to have ample food stores for these environments. Without food, you cannot stay in a hideout for long.

Water is even more critical. Although a person can technically survive three days without water, your motor skills and mental capacity will diminish on the first day. Here’s an article on calculating how much water to store.

In addition to food, you need to consider a way to open cans and a hidden means of cooking food. Can-openers easily solve the first problem. A plug-in stovetop is liable to be the best means of providing the second. Another option is storing food that doesn’t have to be cooked at all.

Plug-in stove units aren’t going to have the massive energy draw of a real stove. If an energy allotment is in place and people are punished for breaking electricity rationing rules, you may want to consider one of these. Plug-in stoves genuinely don’t take up much space and can quickly heat a pot full of chili. I usually use mine to heat a water pot to scald chickens before plucking. A plug-in stove will permit you to enjoy a hot meal. You’d be amazed how much this can help morale.

Adequate nutrition is vital

As far as adequate nutrition goes, it may be wise to consider stocking some vitamins and Metamucil. Vitamins will help offset any micronutrient deficiencies encountered when living off of food stockpiles. At the same time, Meta-mucil will help eliminate constipation worries. While that may sound laughable, consider that many long-term storage food items out there are very low in fiber (MREs come to mind). If that’s what you will be regularly eating, life will quickly grow even more miserable.

The hideout will need to be somewhat self-sufficient

You may assume that it will be easy to keep the hideout resupplied. From a historical standpoint, I don’t think that solely relying on runners has proven to be a fool-proof method. Runners often fall upon their own set of troubles, whether that be fear of surveillance, illness (this happened to one of Anne Frank’s resupply men), weather, or a multitude of other reasons.

To think that you can act as a runner for a hideout daily is naïve. There must be adequate supplies for at least a week stored at the location in case the runner becomes unavailable.

You need to figure out the bathroom situation

If you don’t get this figured out, people are going to die from lack of hygiene. Simultaneously, people will be alerted by the smell. You need to take care of the bathroom situation.

We’re currently living in a world where AI is monitoring sewage in some cities. I don’t think it’s too hard to conclude that AI could detect if there’s an abnormal increase in the amount of sewage from a particular neighborhood. If you aren’t attached to city sewers, you need to consider how extra butts will affect your septic tank. Will it be able to handle the increased volume?

I believe a composting toilet is a worthy option. A compost toilet won’t trigger any sewer AI, will eliminate a smell problem (many tiny homes use these), and serves as a hygienic means of waste disposal. Keep in mind you will need to empty a compost toilet regularly. You’re going to want to do so well before the waste matter gets close to the brim. If you choose to utilize this method, consider stowing extra composting material and ‘waste containers’ for the toilet at the hideout as well.

You will need a way to remove the waste from the hideout discretely. A garden compost pile would be an ideal dumping ground (no pun intended). However, you will have to figure out how to get the poop to the pile without being noticed.

Another option that Daisy has written about is a kitty litter toilet. This same procedure will work in a luggable loo. This will produce more waste that will not decompose, so you need to think about how long you’d be there.

What about light inside the prepper hideout?

You cannot subject a human being to long periods of darkness and expect them to be mentally ok. If anything, the depression rates for those living in the Arctic reflect this. Natural light is ideal, but that means you’re going to have to have light security at night. The windows need to be covered up at night so no one can see a candle or flashlight within the hideout from the outside.

If the hideout is in an area where there is no natural light source, you’re going to need plenty of flashlights, batteries, and lightbulbs stowed away within the hideout. Here’s an article about the importance of light, along with some suggestions. Should there be no electricity within the prepper hideout (e.g., the center of a large basement somewhere), I recommend purchasing a copy of Yago’s Lights On. You will learn how to hook up a power system from golf cart batteries or something similar with the details given by the author.

Loose lips sink ships

You’ll need to keep the prepper hideout as secret as possible. Ideally, while the hideout is being built, you are the only one who needs to know about it. (No contractors, no blueprints, no trail – simply a hidden retreat unknown to the world at large.)

Nobody needs to see construction material going in or out of your house if you live in a neighborhood. As well, nobody needs to see you heading to the dump with a truck full of broken drywall. If you have friends over, they don’t need to see the section of your house where you are building the hideout. Furthermore, build the site as quickly as possible, clean up as soon as possible, and then shut up.

The world is in a strange place

There is undoubtedly more I could add to the conversation here. Hopefully, this will serve as a foundation for you to build off of as you think through this process, should you determine a prepper hideout is well worth your time and effort.

Study the accounts of past efforts. Learn from history. And be careful with the information you’re willing to volunteer.

Sell items with greater reward, and greater risk

The “Reaper’s Hideout” near the center of the map has been built into a miniature fortress, and the Masked Stranger at its heart has become a hot spot for valuable loot turn ins. Reaper’s Chests can now only be delivered to her, and she’s also accepting a few other loot items. She doesn’t reward Reputation progress, but she gives out DOUBLE GOLD, so this hideout is about to become a battleground!

On top of all that, there are new Mercenary Commendations for delivering items to the Hideout, one of which is time limited to the duration of the Legends of the Sea event- you can read all the important details below!

How to create a hideout

The Masked Stranger is still accepting Gifts, and is the only one who will take them off your hands. Gifts come in two varieties: Humble ( 5 Doubloons) and Generous ( 10 Doubloons), and can be found washed up on beaches and inside of Fort Vaults. There are still some Mercenary Commendations to earn for selling these gifts or gifting them to other players, which you can learn about in our Gift Seeker Event Guide.

The tavern Bilge Rat is no longer accepting Reaper’s Chests, so you’ll have to hand them in at the Masked Stranger at the Reaper’s Hideout. Luckily, she’s upped the price to 30 Doubloons for these items, to make the dangerous loot more worthwhile. Reaper’s Chests are marked by a pillar of green and red light that can be seen across the map, and when you bring one aboard, other players can track your position on their map tables!

But that’s not all- a new Reaper’s Bounty Chest has been added, marked by a pillar of gold light, which you also must sell to the Masked Stranger. This chest is worth 25,000 gold, making it one of the most valuable items in the game!

How to create a hideout


Added back in August, you earn 10 Doubloons for delivering your first Reaper’s Chest, 25 Doubloons after delivering a total of 3, and 50 Doubloons (and the title “Death Defier”) after delivering a total of 5.

Similarly, new commendations have been added for the Reaper’s Bounty chests. 10 Doubloons for delivering your first, 25 Doubloons for delivering your third, and 50 Doubloons for delivering your fifth. None of the Reaper’s Chest or Reaper’s Bounty commendations are time limited!

How to create a hideout

The Masked Stranger will also accept a narrow list of specific loot items. She doesn’t reward any Trading Company Reputation, but she pays you DOUBLE GOLD for the items. These pieces of loot are:

Captain’s Chests
Villainous Skulls
Crates of Exotic Silks
Chests of Legends

Note: These specific Loot Items can be found in large quantities in the batch of free “Gilded Voyages” given away to all players during the Legends of the Sea update starting January 15th. Read our full Guide to these Gilded Voyages here

No matter what their age, children like having a private space of their own. Just because you live in a small house where there isn’t enough room for a dedicated playroom, your kids don’t have to miss out — an unused closet can become an ideal hideout for your children when they want a little private time. With a few creative changes, you can turn even the smallest closet into a fun, secret spot for your kids without losing much room in your home.

Get Creative With Paint

A closet is usually painted a neutral shade, like white, cream or beige, but when you’re turning it into a hideout for your kids, you want to play with color. Choose a bright paint shade for the interior of the closet. A sunny yellow shade is an ideal option, but you can also try a vibrant lime, orange, magenta or turquoise shade. When it comes to painting your closet hideout, though, using a vivid color isn’t the only way to make the space special for your kids. With glow-in-the-dark wall paint, you can create a variety of cool effects — use star-shaped stencils to paint a glowing constellation on the walls or ceiling of the closet, or paint racing stripes in the center of the wall for a simple but bright look.

Replace Door

A traditional closet door may leave the space too dark and stuffy to be comfortable. Consider removing the existing door and replacing it with a more unique and interesting option. Curtains are an ideal option, since they are available in a variety of colors and fabrics that can fit a variety of themes for the hideout. For example, if your kids like camping, use a khaki canvas material to give the hideout a tent-like feel. If your kids have a favorite cartoon character, turn themed bedsheets into a curtain door for the hideout. Beaded curtains are another fun option for your hideout’s door. They are available in a variety of colors, shapes and materials, but for a particularly eye-catching look, opt for a crystal style that will reflect the light.

Add Comfortable Seating

In a small closet, there usually isn’t enough space to add formal chairs or seating pieces. To make the space comfortable for your kids, add plenty of large pillows so they can sit comfortably on the floor. If there’s enough room, a beanbag chair may be a good option, since it doesn’t take up as much space as a traditional chair. In a larger closet, you might even think about adding a mattress to the floor to provide seating for multiple kids.

Play With Lighting

Because a closet is dark when the door is closed, lighting is a necessity for a closet hideout. While a traditional overhead light fixture can provide task lighting so your kids can read or play games, you also want to add fun mood lighting. Strands of colorful string lights can make the hideout feel special if there’s an outlet in your closet. Hang the lights above the baseboards or across the walls for a simple but whimsical look. You can even find string lights in fun novelty shapes, like seashells, hearts, stars and chili peppers, to make the hideout even more special.

So is a scam? How does it work? How much can you earn from watching videos? Is it worth your time? If you want the answers to those questions, continue reading this unbiased review. I’ll be taking the platform for a test run so you can truly see how it works. Review:

Recommended: Worth a look.

What is is a video platform, similar to YouTube, that offers high quality content, multiple reaction options, exclusive content, and the chance to earn rewards. The rewards feature brings most of the people to, and it will be the focus of this article. The main way to earn money with is by watching videos.

How to create a hideout

There are other offers too, such as surveys, downloading apps, bonuses, referrals, and other tasks. The videos will reward you with a certain number of points, depending on how many ads load on the videos you watch. You will only earn points if the video loads an ad.

Is a Scam?

After careful research and tests, I can confirm is not a scam. I have been able to earn points watching videos which I was able to redeem for gift cards. However, it’s not exactly a get-rich quick opportunity, and the income might not be worth it for most people. Let’s take a closer look at how it works.

How it Works (Important):

Before you head over to, there are some important things you need to know. For starters, while you can create an account and watch videos for free, you can’t redeem your points from

You have to link your account to one of their Loyalty Rewards Partner’s websites, and then use that second platform to redeem the points for exclusive rewards. The type of rewards you can redeem will vary depending on what the platform has available, but you can expect gift cards or even PayPal cash. can be linked to a number of GPT platforms, however the most popular seems to be GG2U. The payouts are about the same across the board, but GG2U has a more reliable customer support. GG2U also supports payments via PayPal with the minimum being $7, which is lower than other sites.

Other Loyalty Rewards Partners:

  • instaGC
  • PrizeRebel
  • RewardsXP

You can accumulate points in your account and transfer them to one of the above platforms to exchange them for rewards later on. If you use that method, remember each platform has a different conversion ratio, which I’ll get into later on.

In most cases, transferring the points to another platform only takes a few minutes, but it depends on the platform. There have been some cases where points are lost, which is why some people say is a scam. I suggest using GG2U because their customer support seems to be highly responsive.

How to Use

There are three ways you can use The easiest would be to head over to in your web-browser. The second is to use their app which is available on Google Play and Amazon App Store.

The advantage of using an app is you can earn points on your phone while out and about. Lastly, the final way to use is through a partnered website, such as the ones mentioned earlier. Some Android devices like Amazon’s Fire Stick are also compatible with Unfortunately the apps don’t have good reviews.

Earning Points:

The easiest way to earn points is by watching videos. The videos will only reward you with points when an ad loads. Most videos pay between 1 – 4 points. The total number of points will be listed on the video next to the reaction bar.

Spiders are fascinating creatures. They are master spinners, architects, and structural engineers all rolled into each tiny eight-legged body. However, most humans have an inherent fear of spiders. At Halloween, fake spider webs are frequently incorporated in scary décor. It makes you wonder, how do spiders actually make webs? That’s what we’ll discuss in this article.

If you have ever accidentally walked through a real spider web, you know the feeling of panic and sudden improvised karate moves to get it off. But in reality, each spider web is a tiny masterpiece that should fill us with wonder at these incredible arachnids.

How Do Spiders Make Webs?

Spiders make webs using a silk thread that is excreted by the spinneret. The spider controls the thread’s thickness, texture, and adhesiveness as it’s drawn from the spinneret depending on the thread’s intended purpose. Most spiders have three spinnerets, some up to 8, for different thread sizes.

Spiders are special in their ability to produce silk. The silk, which is in a liquid form, is excreted from an organ called a spinneret, located at the rear base of the abdomen.

A spider’s spinneret is amazing as it allows the spider to decide the thickness of the silk required, if it should be sticky or not, and if the thread should be smooth or rough.

The silk starts as a liquid but dries and solidifies when exposed to air.

Like a net, the edges of the spider web are anchored onto strategic points to hold the net open and taught; these are known as frame threads. Once the external frame threads and anchor points have been established, the spider fills the void between the frame with radial and viscid threads.

Radial webs run from the middle to the edge, while the lateral threads are called the viscid threads. Mooring threads may also form part of the web. These are the long threads you may see extending out from the web onto an anchoring point.

The spider excretes the silk strands as it crawls along in a unique pattern that then forms the spider web’s elaborate design. Each thread is precisely placed to maximize the chance of catching an insect in the net.

This video shows a Garden Orb Web Spider building a web, wonderfully recorded in time-lapse by BBC Earth.

Why Do Spiders Build Webs?

Spiders build elaborate webs to trap insects that the spiders eat. The spider webs silk fibers are coated with a sticky substance that prevents an insect from escaping once it has flown into the web. When the insect struggles when trying to free itself, the insect becomes entangled in the web itself.

Spider webs, also known as cobwebs, are a great way of catching food without the spider needing to run after and catch the prey animal physically.

The spider lies in wait in the middle of the web for easy and fast access to the prey item when it lands in the web.

A swift bite from the spider injects venom into the insect; this quickly kills or paralyzes the victim and allows the spider to enjoy the insect at leisure.

Do All Spiders Make Webs?

Not all spiders build spider webs as we know them. Some spiders are ground-dwelling and lie in wait for an unsuspecting insect to pass by before grabbing it.

Other spiders carry a small net or web along with them. The web is tossed over its unsuspecting prey to catch the prey.

How Strong Is A Spider’s Web?

The individual strands of a spider’s web are incredibly strong. Size for size, the silk is far stronger than steel.

The spider web design combined with the strong silk threads makes it very hard for an insect to break out of a web once caught.

Do Spiders Eat Their Spider Web?

Many spiders do eat their spider webs. Spider webs lose their stickiness over time which makes them less effective in capturing food for the spider.

Ingeniously, the spider recycles its web by eating it. The silk thread from which the web is made has a very high protein content.

How to create a hideoutorb weaver spider

Are All Spider Web Designs Similar?

Not all spider webs look the same, but most share basic design principles without which the web would not have its characteristic shape.

Of course, spider webs are found in many locations, both in homes or out in the wild. There are roughly forty-eight thousand spider species in the world, so web designs vary widely.

Commonly found on all spider webs are the following silk threads that aid in creating the spider web.

  • Mooring threads – Long threads that attach to the frame threads and act as the main anchor lines.
  • Frame threads – Create a frame around the web to which the inner threads are attached.
  • Radial Threads – Threads run from the center of the web to the outside, attached to the frame threads
  • Viscid threads – Also called the orb threads, are the thin threads that run between the radial threads and are sticky to trap the insects.

Are Spider Webs Sticky?

The silk threads of a spider’s web are covered with sticky droplets that the spider produces in a gland in its stomach. Only the very fine threads, called viscid threads, are sticky and designed to entrap insects that spiders eat.

The glue-coated viscid threads of a spider’s web are about a third of the diameter of a human hair. The spider webs silk threads are flexible, making it very difficult for the prey insect to get leverage to free itself. The more the insect struggles, the more it invariably gets tangled in the web.

How to create a hideout

Spiders know which strands of the web are coated with the glue so avoid stepping on them to avoid being trapped by the spider’s web.

Can Spiders Run Out Of Web

Spiders secrete the silk from which spider webs are made from their spinneret. The spider produces its silk which is very high in protein. A spider can run out of web if the spider is in poor condition. Not having fed for a long time, injured or very old, would drain its bodily reserves.

Under normal conditions, the spider can produce sufficient silk from reserves built up in its body to complete the web that the spider is building.

In the instance where the spider has just completed the new web, and the web is destroyed, the spider may not have sufficient silk immediately available to complete a brand new web.


Spiders are unique in that they can produce silk threads to build webs to catch food. The spinneret, an organ in the spider’s abdomen, can produce multiple different types of thread on demand, depending on the thread required for each part of the web built by the spider.

The spider draws a thread out from the spinneret much like a dragline, as it makes its way from point to while building the web. Each thread is meticulously attached to a specific point on the vertical and horizontal lines until the web is fully completed.

Need a space to call your own? Weave weeds, grasses, sticks, flowers, and leaves into a loom tent for a private outdoor hideout.

We all want a place of our own — a place where we can be in charge. In your own little lair or tiny animal den, you get to be the rule maker and the decider. You can make a little hiding place that’s all yours, one that you build and decorate however you like.

Make a Loom Tent

Do you ever get bored living in the same ol’ place following the same ol’ rules? Why not make a hideout in the yard to hang out on your own and do things your way?

You can make a tent or lean-to and have a cool hideout that’s perfect for hatching adventurous plans, catching some shade on a sunny day, or my favorite activity — napping!

How to create a hideout

Illustration by Ilona Sherratt, excerpted from Backyard Adventure

An easy way to start is to turn a low-hanging branch into a loom tent. Take a long piece of parachute cord and use a landscape staple to pin it to the ground about 3 feet away from the branch. Then take the cord up and over the branch, wrapping it around once. Lead the cord to the ground at an angle and pin. Do this again as many times as you like to create a string tent shape. Now weave weeds, grasses, flowers, sticks, and leaves into your loom tent!

All you need is a wall or low tree branch and some sticks. You can lean sticks that are as tall as you are (or taller) against the branch or wall in a row. You can cover the lean-to with leaves or evergreen branches, or just layer on more sticks until you can’t be seen.

Tons of homeschooling families love using a morning basket in their homeschool but when kids get older, it can become a struggle. Finding age-appropriate studies can be hard but with The Juice, it just got a heck of a lot easier!

Morning baskets are a great way to start the day together and spend time learning together as a family. It gets all of your “group work” out of the way early and allows students to finish their individual work throughout the day.

If you’re unfamiliar with a morning basket, it’s basically a basket that helps you build healthy habits and spend the first few minutes of your day together. Every family’s morning basket looks different but common components include Bible studies, the current family read-aloud, poetry and memorization work. Families like to get these things done first so you don’t get too busy and run out of time at the end of the day.

But when you’re trying to do morning baskets with kids of all different ages, it can be a challenge. Older kids think you’re boring or younger kids don’t understand the more complex teachings. How is a homeschool mom supposed to teach all of these kids, without a little help?

The Juice: The Best Thing to Ever Happen to Morning Baskets

What is The Juice?

The Juice is an educational and interactive experience for kids grades 5-12. Students read about current events, unbiased news and view uplifting videos before answering questions on the topic.

The Juice offers a wide range of topics, from politics to the economy, from trending stories to world news. Students learn the facts from a reliable source so you don’t have to worry about biased news influencing their point of view.

The Juice teaches students to think for themselves and come to their own conclusions about the world around them.

In the process, they improve their vocabulary, exposure to the world and be inspired.

Parents are given access to the same materials as students, as well as the results of their quiz. The quizzes are a quick and easy way to see if your child is comprehending the stories or if they need to work on grasping new concepts.

In the “Teacher Portal” parents can add messages and view their child’s progress.

How to create a hideout

What you will find in The Juice:

  • Stories about interesting topics, facts only and around 200 words
  • Interactive quizzes for each story
  • Extra Juices, where kids can dig deeper into the topic they’re reading about
  • Custom infographics and visual aids
  • Bright Sides, which are inspiring stories to help kids see the good in the world
  • New STEAM videos everyday

Stories cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Economics
  • US News
  • World News
  • Healthy
  • Vocabulary
  • US Politics
  • Humanities
  • STEM
  • Sports

Why do teens need the news?

It’s important for kids to understand the world around them for a lot of reasons. It helps them build confidence, understanding and opinions about themselves and others.

Staying up to date on current events is a great way to introduce them to the “real world,” before sending them off to college. Reading about current events improves critical thinking skills, visual and numeric literacy and broadens their view of the world.

Who is The Juice for?

The Juice is broken into 4 reading levels:

  • 5-6 grades
  • 7-8 grades
  • 9-10 grades
  • 11-12 grades

Each level offers age-appropriate content, easy-to-understand stories and interactive quizzes. The Juice grows with your student!

How to create a hideout

Non-Biased News:

There’s no doubt about it: the more your child reads, the more they’ll learn. Reading news stories, both local and worldwide, help them to see the world from other points of view. It teaches them to think outside of the box and form educated opinions about important issues.

Introducing kids to the news of today can be scary for any parent. Many homeschool families work hard for years to shelter their kids from the negativity and hate that fills our news channels but the Juice does that for you!

Instead of filling your child’s head with hateful articles, they offer non-biased news that helps them form their own opinion.

The Juice staff doesn’t take this lightly: each article is written by credentialed journalists and educators and is edited by at least 4 editors before being published.

The writers are a very diverse group: geographically, politically, ethnically, and of all ages. This helps ensure that no bias stories slip by. They deliberate over which stories are most important to the students and run with those.

With The Juice, you can expect:

  • No sensationalism.
  • No coverage or selection bias.
  • No presentation bias.
  • No tonality bias.
  • Political balance.
  • No false balance or false equivalence.
  • No opinion.

How to use The Juice in your Homeschool:

As I’ve already mentioned, The Juice is the greatest thing to ever happen to morning baskets. It keeps your teens involved in your daily routine, without making them feel babyish. They can simply read (or listen to) their stories while younger siblings read their own books. This keeps teenagers engaged during morning basket but also gives them some independence.

Because each story is geared towards helping your child learn and grow critical skills, it’s easy to use The Juice in your homeschool in many different ways.

  • Have your child summarize their favorite story of the day for younger siblings
  • Encourage kids to read the Extra Juices, then dig deeper on their own
  • Listen to the stories together, as a family, in place of a bedtime story
  • On Fridays, allow the child to choose their favorite story from The Juice that week and write a paper on it
  • Allow your child a chance to explain why they feel the way they do about a topic, then offer different opinions
  • Catch up on The Juice while waiting at practices, doctors offices or while in the bathroom

What is Loot TV?

Loot TV is a video streaming website that pays you to watch videos. It’s essentially a YouTube clone, but one that pays you the viewer.

“Watching” videos on Loot TV is actually a completely passive earning opportunity. Simply start a video playing each morning and leave it going. Your points will rack up throughout the day.

Loot TV points aren’t directly cashed out from the site, but instead transferred to a Get-Paid-To site and redeemed from there. It’s important that you choose the site with the best, most profitable cashout rate to make the most of your earnings (more on this later).

It is available internationally, but viewers in the USA, UK, and Canada will see a higher amount of ads, so will earn more points per day.

How to Sign up to Loot TV?

There are no sign-up bonuses available so just sign up directly to Loot TV via their website.

As mentioned you do not cashout directly via Loot TV but actually, transfer to a get-paid to (GPT) site such as GG2U or So read our guides for get-paid-to sites, pick one and sign up.

Then, you need to link Loot TV with the GPT site. The easiest way to do this is from Loot TV – just click redeem, then click link account:

How to create a hideout Loot TV Link Account

You’ll then be transferred to the selected GPT site. Once set up you can redeem points directly and instantly from Loot TV to the GPT site.

In the unlikely situation where this linking fails, you can approach this from the other way around. Go to your GPT site, go to the offerwalls sections, click on Lootably, then videos then one of the Loot.TV links. Ignore the coin price, as coins earned are tied to Loot TV points.

How to create a hideout Lootably Loot TV Link via GPT Site

How to Make More Money with Loot TV

Earning free cash on Loot TV is incredibly simple – just start a video playing and step away from your laptop. It will play ads in between videos and your Loot TV points will automatically rack up over time. It doesn’t matter which video you choose, just pick one and it will switch to the next once complete – totally automated.

How to create a hideout Just pick a video and the rest is automated, completely passive earning!

However, even for a simple site like this, there are ways to maximize your video watching earnings:

1. Make Sure AdBlock is Turned Off

You earn points when ads are shown between videos, so make sure that AdBlock is off/paused otherwise ads will not be shown and you will earn nothing!

2. Reduce Your Electricity Usage

Your earnings per day are passive but low. So, we need to make sure that we keep our electricity costs low. A laptop only costs around £0.05 in electricity per day anyway, but we can bring this down further by:

  • Changing video resolution on Loot TV to 240p.
  • Mute your laptop.
  • Turn down the laptop screen brightness as low as it will go.
  • Turn on your battery saver or other reduced power modes on your laptop.

3. Double Your Video Earnings

Hideout TV functions in a very similar way to Loot TV, so if you’re earning by watching on Loot TV it makes sense to also have Hideout TV running on the same screen.

This can be achieved by just opening two browser windows, one playing Loot TV videos and one playing Hideout TV videos. On Windows, you can just hold down the Windows key, and press the left arrow to move the browser window to the left occupying half of the screen. For the other browser window do the same but Windows key + right.

4. Cash Out to the Most Profitable GPT Site

Until you cashout your Loot TV balance to a GPT site, the amount your points are worth is variable.

For example, 1,000 Loot TV points will be worth a different $ amount once transferred to vs GG2U vs any other GPT site. So before you transfer make sure to look through the options and ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck.

5. Check on it Every Few Hours

Around every 5 or 6 hours, a pop-up will ask if you’re still watching. So just check in on it once or twice a day to make sure that it’s not sitting there idle. Alternatively, pre-empt this by clicking a different video to signal to Loot TV that you’re still there whenever you pass by your laptop or desktop during the day.

Why Should You Bother With Loot TV?

It’s true that the earnings are low, but truly passive earning opportunities are almost non-existent. With Loot TV you earn money by doing literally nothing.

What’s more, is that because you’re transferring to pretty much any GPT site you want, the points can be used to help you achieve daily targets/bonuses on multiple GPT sites throughout the week.

Completely passive income. Earn money by doing nothing at all

Finally, because you have your choice of GPT site, it means that you can select the GPT based on the payout method you want. For example, if you want to boost your cryptocurrency balance on Coinbase, you transfer the Loot TV points to

  • Hey everyone,
    Well, I’m becoming more appreciative of my vet every day! He is a small pet and exotic vet only, meaning that he specializes in animals such as hamsters, guinea pigs, mice, rats, rabbits, chinchillas, ferrets, hedgehogs, monkeys, etc. He does NOT see the more common pets such as dogs, cats, or any forms of livestock. He has a PHd and spends a lot of time researching. He’s also one of the few vets I’ve ever met who are willing to take extensive measures (including surgery) to save a small animal’s life. There are animal lovers who travel here from hours away just to have him see their animals. I myself drive an hour!
    Well, today was Mowgli’s follow-up appointment. He had a first day home appointment on Thursday, but he always schedules follow-ups shortly after for Syrians, because of the risks of contracting wet tail. Thankfully, Mowgli is sound and healthy! Well, the veterinarian’s office offers a wide variety of homemade food mixes for a variety of animals such as hedgehogs, ferrets, and rats. However, I noticed that there is yet to be a hamster diet offered, and that kind of upsets me. Mowgli deserves nothing better than the best!
    So, together we’ve set out to create a healthy hamster mix. Healthier than any commercial seed mix available at pet stores, and healthier than most lab blocks (besides Harland Teklad, which is only available in bulk (30 lbs or higher) which isn’t feasible for a single (or even multiple!) hamsters. We made an initial ingredients list using some other homemade rodent mixes, such as Suebee’s Diet for Rats, for references and altering the mixes to include more or less of certain hammie-healthy ingredients. He’s been busy researching hamster nutrition requirements, and has been calling me periodically to tell me what he’s found as well as emailing me. Here is what we have so far:

    Dry Rolled Oats
    Puffed Wheat Cereal (Quaker, Malt-O-Meal, Kashi, Cheerios, etc.) SUGAR FREE ONLY
    Total Cereal (endorsed by several rodent fancy groups, excellent nutrient quality, lots of vitamins and minerals)
    Dried Fruits (bananas-potassium, cranberries-good for urinary tract , carrots- vitamins A & C, beta-carotine, apples- carbs, phosphorus, iron, vitamins A & C)
    Dry Pasta (good for teeth, makes digestion of some binding ingredients such as oatmeal easier)
    Roasted, Unsalted Soy Beans (protein, cancer-preventing agents, vitamin K, good for deterring cancer)
    Granola– carbs and fiber
    Sesame Seeds– (magnesium, potassium, Vitamins A, B, B12, E, B6, Thaimin, Riboflavin. the list goes on!)
    Cashew Nuts– SMALL AMMOUNT ADDED ONLY (least caloric and low levels of saturated fats, good for maintaing a healthy coat, particularly with longhairs)

    That’s what we have so far for the main mix. Approved, Suggested, and Reccomended Dietary Supplements to go along with this diet include:

    Fresh Fruits
    Fresh Veggies
    Steamed Veggies
    IAMS Puppy Biscuits
    Baby Food
    Cooked Brown Rice
    Wheat/Whole-Grain Bread

    And a recipe for healthy treats (fed sparingly):
    1/4 cup peanut butter
    1 banana
    1/4 cup uncooked oats
    1/2 to 1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/4 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line cookie sheet with foil, spray or coat with butter Measure out the Peanut Butter and empty into mixing bowl. Peel the banana, add. Mix together until a creamy mixture forms. Add the sugar and cinnamon. Measure the oats and add together. Mix well. Insert the flour, 1/4 cup at a time until a tough dough forms. Roll dough out into “snakes” and cut into 1/2 inch nuggets. Bake at 450 degrees for 7-10 minutes or until lightly brown. Let cool. Serve to hungry rodents!

    So, that’s what we have so far! I’ll keep you updated if we add any more ingredients. So far, I’ve had this approved by THREE small exotic vets, whom I’ve faxed the ingredients to. If we get this lab-tested and approved as well, it WILL be sold at select veterinary offices specializing in small animals. PLEASE NOTE: This mix will be given a name (suggestions appreciated) and if you use this mix you MUST use that name and CAN NOT take credit for creating the mix yourself. It’s not right to take credit for other’s hard work. Thanks.

    There is an Oprah episode where they are talking about parenting. The lady asked “Do your eyes light up when your child walks into the room?”

    As parents, we know the look on a toddler’s face when they first see us after having spent some time apart. Whether you were gone for a weekend getaway or just a trip to the grocery store, your toddler is always happy to see you. Their eyes light up, they squeal and a smile covers their entire face. They are HAPPY to see us and we should be returning that kind of pure joy to them.
    We all strive to make birthdays and Christmas extra special for our kids but what about the other 363 days of the year? Shouldn’t we be trying to make them feel like a million bucks every single day? It’s a struggle to find the time and energy after a long day of dirty dishes and piles of laundry but it doesn’t have to be that hard.

    10 Easy Ways to Make Your Kids Feel Special

    Compliment Them:

    Not all compliments are equal, so keep in mind that saying “You’re awesome!” doesn’t quite give the same feeling as “You did great on that test. I’m proud of how hard you worked.”


    Really stop and listen to what your kids are saying. You’ll learn so much. Simply nodding and agreeing tells them that what they’re saying isn’t important. By making eye contact and engaging in what they’re telling you, you are showing them mutual respect . Not to mention, they will trust you and tell you more when you’re really listening.

    Notice the Details:

    When my kids draw a picture, I try to notice every little thing about it. Sure it’s just another tree. But a closer look will find apples (or are they peaches?) a rope swing and a new kind of flower. Ask them about the small things. They’ll love that you’re interested in it and care about even the smallest detail. You can do this with everything from their writing to the story about playing with the neighborhood kids.

    Spend One-on-One Time With Them:

    My kids need my undivided attention, even if they only get a few minutes everyday. When life gets busy and I am not engaging with them like I should be, I can tell. They get whiny, irritable and clingy. I know then that they NEED me to slow down and spend a few minutes with them.

    Unplug and Connect:

    Yes, that’s so much easier said than done. I know. But your kids will love the attention they get when your family unplugs and tunes in to each other. We have technology free days on Christmas and my kids say it’s their favorite day. even when we don’t have presents. Kids yearn to be the center of our focus but unfortunately, we often let our cell phones steal the limelight.


    You probably don’t need me to remind you to treat others how you want to be treated. I sometimes find myself wondering how I’d feel if someone came and changed the channel while I was in the middle of my favorite TV show. Or how I would like my day to be micromanaged by someone? The truth is, I wouldn’t like it at all. We must remember that we are raising future generations and treat them as people and not as property. As parents, we need to respect and listen to our children’s opinions and remember that we are training them to be successful and compassionate adults. We can’t do that if we are constantly making their decisions or overpowering them.

    Open Up:

    My kids love to hear stories about my youth. I tell them about lessons I’ve learned and how I felt at the time. This makes it easier for them to relate to me, knowing I’ve been there before. Be sure to tell them the things you admire about them, how they did a great job dealing with their situations and that you are proud of their efforts, even when they don’t succeed.

    Hold Them:

    Even my 11 year old likes to be close to me. No, I don’t get to hold her on my lap anymore but I do get to lay with her head resting on my shoulder while watching a movie or cuddled up with a good book. Keeping the physical connection to your kids lets them know that you are still there for them, no matter how old they are.

    Don’t Let Them Talk Negatively About Themselves:

    My kids aren’t allowed to say negative things about themselves. One thing I always tell my kiddos is “The world is full of people ready to put you down. You don’t need to do it yourself.” It’s very true. There will never be a shortage of people who will make fun of you, put you down or laugh at your expense. Evan the most successful and well-like people in the world still have haters. You don’t need to be one, too.

    Do Something They Enjoy:

    Spend the day at the arcade, watching their favorite movies or getting your nails done together. Special time doing things they enjoy show your kids that you value the things that are important to them. Talk to them about why they enjoy these activities and let them know you care about them, too.

    It’s not hard to make your kids feel special but sometimes it does take a little more effort on our part. No matter how you choose to show it, make sure your babies always know just how special they are to you.

    Building a bug hotel for the garden is a fun project to do with the kids or for adults who are kids at heart. Building homemade bug hotels provide a welcome refuge to beneficial insects, who pollinate our fruits and vegetables. Interested in constructing a DIY insect hotel? Read on to learn how to make a bug hotel.

    Why Build a DIY Insect Hotel?

    All insects don’t fly south when winter approaches. Some board down the hatches and go into diapause, a suspended state of development, kind of like hibernation. Homemade hotels for insects fill a role that many people think doesn’t need to be filled. After all, don’t insects find shelter and a place to raise the next generation on their own anyway?

    It turns out that many gardeners are too tidy. Many of us remove all waste from our landscapes, and in the process, wind up removing insect homesteads. Bee homes have become all the rage, and while bees are champion pollinators, other insects are beneficial to the garden, too. Of course, ladybugs serve a valuable service by eating aphids, but parasitic wasps, lacewings, hoverflies, and even spiders all do their part to keep predator insects at bay. They all deserve a safe insect hotel in which to hide out.

    Building your hotel is part garden art and part winter habitat for these beneficial insects.

    When building a bug hotel, you may choose to focus on one species of insect or create hotels for multiple species of insect guests. Creating your own bug hotel can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. Providing a variety of plant material will encourage a variety of insect friends.

    It’s important to know how different insects overwinter; for instance, solitary bees (those that don’t sting or build a colony) prefer to nest in hollow stems over the winter, while ladybugs overwinter in groups among dry plant material. Hoverflies overwinter as pupae in leaf debris, straw, or pinecones, and lacewings in rolled up corrugated paper.

    How to Make a Bug Hotel

    DIY insect hotels can be made out of recycled material such as bricks, drain tiles, pallets, and even stacks of old logs. Imitate nature to the best of your ability by adding leaves, straw, mulch, pinecones, and sticks to create “rooms.” Place your homemade bug hotels in a shady area that receives morning sun with afternoon shade.

    Solitary bees need a hotel with hollow holes. Their hotel can be made out of bamboo sticks or hollow stemmed plants set in drainage tiles, cans, or hollow logs to keep them dry, or drill holes in a block of wood. Drilled holes should be at least 6 inches (15 cm.) deep and smooth to protect their delicate wings.

    Bumble bees die out during the winter with the exception of the new queen. A simple bug hotel you can make suitable for the new royal is an upturned flowerpot filled with straw or garden debris.

    Building something to entice the ladybugs is as simple as packing some twigs and dry plant material together. This will provide them with shelter and food during the long cold winter.

    Parasitic wasps are extremely beneficial in the garden and help to control pests. As with solitary bees, a piece of wood with holes drilled into it makes an excellent parasitic wasp bug hotel for the garden.

    Are you sick of not being able to clear the jumps at your local tracks? Do other riders not like you because you’re always in their way? A simple way to fix this is to build your own jumps in your yard. Although building a jump might not be easy without good equipment, it will be worth it once you make a jump or two because you will learn how to clear these obstacles in no time.


    The first thing you want to do is find an area where to put the jump. You probably don’t want to build it next to trees or big pits until you are more experienced. The ground does not have to be flat though. In fact, a little slant or elevation change will make it a easier to build a jump because you can dig into ground for the take-off. Once you found a good spot for your dirt bike jump you should have some other thoughts in mind, such as: what type of jump you want, how big the jump will be, and what kind of dirt you will use.

    Motocross Jump Dimensions

    If you want a motocross style jump that gives you more distance, a good estimation to go by is the 3-to-1 ratio. It basically means that if you have a jump 3 feet long then the height of the jump should be 1 foot. So if your jump is 9 feet long then a good height will be about 3 feet. So far you should have figured out where you are going to put a dirt bike jump and how big it is going to be.

    Other Types of Dirt Bike Jumps

    On the other hand, if you want a supercross style jump it will be a little bit different. Motocross jumps are more gradual, while supercross jumps generally have a greater angle and give you more height. The main difference in building a supercross jump is that you want a steeper angle, so instead of a 3:1 ratio it might be 2 1/2: or even 2:1.

    How Big?

    A couple more things to think about while building the actual jumps is to make sure it’s gradual take-off and not abrupt, or else you will be getting bucked around and have a high chance of flipping the bike in the air. Also, you want to make sure the take-off/base of the jump is longer than the length of the dirt bikes wheelbase. If the take-off is not long enough then it’s not going to be a smooth jump.

    How to create a hideout

    What Kind of Dirt To use For Jumps?

    Once you figure out what kind of jump you want and how big it’s going to be then you have to decide what to do about dirt. A well made jump should have a good amount of clay in it, so if you’re lucky enough to have clay or a mixture of clay for soil then use it. If you have sand but don’t want to rebuild the jump every time you use it then you can always bring in some clay.

    Clay itself is fairly cheap, but if you have to get it hauled in by someone else then it’s going to take a chunk out of your wallet. This is not to say that you shouldn’t make sand jumps for dirt biking, because it’s a easy and will last longer if you pack it down and water it often.

    How To Make A Dirt Bike Jump

    Now to the actual building of the dirt bike jump… If you have heavy duty equipment, such as a skid-loader, then great! But for those that are using a tractor, four-wheeler with attachments, or even just shovels, don’t lose your confidence. It’s still possible to make a good jump, it will just take more time. Plus, you will build some muscle if you do the work yourself!

    How To Save Time Building Dirt Bike Jumps

    To cut the building time down to almost half, at the start you can put logs, bricks, or any objects to make the base, then just pile dirt on top. If you’re making a jump on a hill or if the ground is slanted (having the jump go uphill is easiest) simply dig dirt out below the jump and pile it up on the base of the jump.

    Remember to keep it smooth and fill in any holes or drops, even if they are small. The wider the jump is the better, especially when it’s packed down. For one, it’s wider so you can have more than one line, and it will last longer. If you’re bringing in enough dirt then there’s no need to dig prior to the jump, unless you want more air.

    You’ll Need More Dirt Than You Think…

    Just keep putting more and more dirt on the jump until you think there’s plenty, then add a little more. It may seem like a lot, but it’s better than fixing it or repeatedly adding more dirt. As soon as you’re done building the jump you scan it over a couple more times and get rid of any bumps or divots that might affect riding.

    How Build Dirt Bike Jump With A Shovel

    If all you have is a shovel (Amazon), it’s best to use a wheel barrow as well. Simply find a place where you can get good clean dirty from and shovel it into the wheel barrow, then dump it on the spot where you’re building the jump.

    How to create a hideout

    If you don’t have a wheel barrow, then you can dig out the landing and use that dirt to build the jump. So, the dirt you just dug up will be the jump above ground, and then you’re landing in the spot where you took the dirt from. Just make sure it’s a smooth transition.

    How To Make A Great Motocross Jump

    Another key to having a good jump is making a good lip. The lip of the jump is the edge where the bike takes off. If this is not made right then you will not stay as stable in the air. To make a good lip just smooth of the top and make sure it flows with the rest of the jump. You can look at from the side to see if the angle is gradual or not.

    How To Make The Jump Last Longer

    To put the finishing touches you should water the jump and let it sit for a day or two so it hardens…. I think that pretty much covers the basics of how to make dirt bike jumps. Just be sure to build the jumps safe, and that you are making them on your own property.

    How to get over the fear of jumping

    You need to start small. If you’ve never jumped a dirt bike before, it’s going to be a completely new feeling to fly through the air. Your body won’t know what to do right away, so you must start on a small, but smooth jump.

    I recommend just making a nice, smooth ski jump. It’s just a single jump with no landing, so it will shoot you more forward than up. Once you feel how the suspension compresses and rebounds off the jump, then you can progress to a bigger tabletop or double jump.

    How can I turn my dirt bike into a good trail bike? In this article we’ll look at each area of your bike that can be optimized to make trail riding easier and more exciting.

    A good trail bike is one that you can ride on at a fast pace for at least an hour and still be comfortable. If you race hare-scrambles or enduros then it’s important that you have the right equipment for two reasons. One, you will be faster if it’s set-up to your liking, and two, you will last the race without getting hurt or completely worn out.

    Protect Your Hands

    One of the first things I would put on my dirt bike to use in the woods would be bark busters/hand guards. They will protect your hands and levers from many could-have-been injuries, bruises, and broken parts.

    Plush Yet Firm Suspension

    Setting up your suspension is very important as well. If you have springs that don’t fit your weight you’ll be tired and probably banged up after a short period of riding. First get the right springs, then get the forks and shock re-valved for your riding style.

    Slowing The Engine Down

    Next on the list is a flywheel weight . This alone will greatly improve your riding by slowing down engine acceleration, allowing the rear wheel to hook up better. Today’s dirt bikes are very powerful, so it’s easy to lose traction and slide the rear wheel out.

    How to create a hideout

    Slowing down the engine to get more power to the ground will help you go faster, especially in slick conditions. A heavier flywheel weight will also help prevent stalling because the engine revs at a slower rate. This is very helpful for riding tight single track trails when it’s easy to stall.

    You’re Going To Need More Gas

    If you’re going on long rides or races, a bigger gas tank will reduce the number of, or eliminate pit stops. You don’t want to run out of gas during a race or 10 miles away from your vehicle. A bigger tank can increase your range up to 50% or more.

    Are You Approved For Trails?

    The exhaust system might also have to be changed for trail riding. DNR requires a USFS-Approved spark arrestor for most state trails. They’re often quieter than stock, which is a good thing because it keeps more riding areas open. Spark-arrestor silencers are fairly cheap and the power-loss is minimal, if any.

    Spacing Your Gearing Appropriately

    Gearing can be crucial for trail riding, so finding the right size sprockets that aren’t too high or too low is important. If you ride single track but have to ride on high-speed fire roads, a good ratio is one that you can lug the bike down low, while still keeping a relatively high cruise speed.

    Protect The Undercarriage

    There are umpteen different things you can do to your dirt bike to make it a woods weapon, but the last one on this list is a skid plate. It may not help performance-wise, but it can and will save you from costly damage. Rocks and logs are a hazard to the bottom of the engine and frame. A skid plate completely covers them so they won’t get scraped up or cracked.

    How to ride in the woods with confidence

    Tribes of Midgard Fragments are an essential part of the game and clearing its final challenges.

    Without Fragments, you don’t get to challenge the Saga Boss, Fenrir. However, the game isn’t quite as clear on where to find some Fragment types and what you should be doing to get them.

    Tribes of Midgard Fragments | All Fragment types

    These are all the fragments you need to get in Tribes of Midgard. Some of them are fairly straightforward. Jotunn Fragments drop when you defeat Jotunn, for example.

    Here’s how many you’ll need to reach Fenrir:

    • 15 Jotunn Fragments
    • 5 Hideout Fragments
    • 50 Event Fragments
    • 25 Quest Fragments

    Others are a bit more vague or have additional conditions attached to them.

    Tribes of Midgard Fragments | Quest Fragments

    It’ll take a while to gather Quest Fragments. While there’s no shortage of quests in Tribes of Midgard, you can only have one active quest at a time.

    Tribes of Midgard Fragments | Event Fragments

    Tribes of Midgard has three random events you can stumble on to earn these Fragments.

    • Roosters of Ragnarok: Chase and capture the roosters
    • World Tree Stag: Interact with Duneyrr
    • Prisoner Escape: Free the prisoners after defeating their captors.

    These events spawn at random and must be completed before their timer runs out to get the Fragment. Some claim the Golden Egg Rune increases the chance for Roosters of Ragnarok to spawn, though there’s no evidence of that being true just yet.

    Tribes of Midgard fragments | Where to find Hideout Fragments

    To get Hideout Fragments, you’ll have to find a hideout and clear it out entirely. That might seem obvious, but it’s the finding that gets difficult.

    You’ll have a better chance of finding Tribes of Midgard hideouts in the highlands, but make sure to pack some fire-resistant items. If you’re lucky, you’ll find an NPC quest that requires you to find a Hideout, which means getting two Fragments at once.

    The catch with Hideout Fragments is that you only get them once the entire Hideout is cleared of enemies. If you think you’ve done that but don’t have a Fragment to show for it, head back in and scour every area for stragglers.

    If you want to try the Golden Egg experiment for yourself, we’ve got a guide explaining how to get the rare rune. Make sure to keep an eye on Tribes of Midgard Shift codes for free cosmetics once they start rolling out as well.

    Looking to make a secret base in Pokemon BDSP. Don’t worry this guide has all the steps covered that you need to follow to get your secret base.

    How to create a hideout

    Just like the original games Diamond and Pearl you can create a secret base in Pokemon BDSP. You can do things like store your statues in your base. And these statues also help to increase your encounter rate of the Pokemon that you can find in the Hideaways. Also having a secret base is cool so there is no reason for you to not have one. So in this guide let us take a look at how to create and make your Secret Base in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl (BDSP).

    How to Make Secret Base in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl (BDSP)

    How to create a hideout

    You can make your Secret Base in the Grand Underground in Pokemon BDSP. These are the steps to follow for creating a base.

    1. Go to the Eterna City. The same place as the second gym.
    2. There head to the house next to the Pokemon Center and speak with the Underground Man.
    3. He will give the Explorer Kit. You need to interact with him and complete his missions to get Digger Drill.
      • The first mission requires you to go underground. Be outside any building and use the Explorer Kit. Go underground and listen to Roark explain the features of it. Once over go back up to complete it.
      • For your second mission, you need to dig up spheres or treasures. To complete this mission find yellow spots, after finding one face it and press A. Complete the mini-game to get the treasure.
    4. The second mission will reward you with the Digger Drill.
    5. After getting Digger Drill, go underground and face any wall of your choice. Simply press X-button and select Digger Drill from the Traps menu. You will be asked for a confirmation of whether you wish to create the secret base in that wall. Select Yes to make your Secret Base. Remember to select this wall carefully as Digger Drill works like a consumable item. Hence after one use, it will disappear.

    If you follow the above steps correctly you should be able to create your Secret Base in no time.

    That covers everything you need to know about how to make a Secret Base in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl (BDSP). If you like playing this game then be sure to check our other guides on how to unlock the Mystery Gift and how to get Mew or Jirachi in Pokemon BDSP.

    The Fray
    How To Save A Life

    Artist Info: Discography
    Album length: 12 tracks
    Street Date: September 13, 2005

    Since the release of their latest and current 2005 album, How to Save a Life, piano rockers The Fray have been taking the nation by storm. The album peaked at #14 on the Billboard 200 chart and has gone double platinum, spawned the huge hits “Over My Head (Cable Car),” “How to Save a Life,” and “Look After You,” and has garnered them numerous TV appearances. Frontman and pianist Isaac Slade started the band in 2002 and this album reflects the years of hard work and determination that have gotten them to where they are today.

    The first mega-hit off the album, “Over My Head (Cable Car)” is a thought-provoking song that Slade says was written to describe the troubled relationship between him and his brother. Songs like “Look After You” and “She Is” are romantic, carefree, and ultimately selfless love songs (“Look After You” humbly states “What’s mine is yours to make your own“). “Fall Away,” a song that can easily be related to the sounds of bands like Coldplay and The Goo Goo Dolls, reminds us not to do things that we will regret, as evidenced in the lines “You fall away from your past/But its following you.” “Trust Me” is a powerful, lyrically inclined piano ballad that, although not obvious, could be written from God’s perspective or merely could be interpreted as a simple love song. Perhaps the most recognized and fan-favored track on the record is “How to Save a Life.” It proves quite emotional in the way it describes Isaac’s feelings of sorrow after the passing of a friend who he felt he could have done more to help him in the situation he was in. Importantly though, the song advocates praying to God and not turning away from Him despite the difficulties.

    Some fans would argue that The Fray’s music lacks severely in the faith-based lyrics department, but many others think just the opposite. Almost every single song meaning can be interpreted for a secular meaning (though in no way risque. the album never even comes close to approaching anything suggestive) or a faith based meaning, which is something that The Fray may or may not have intentionally done, but essentially makes them stand out from many other bands.

    Overall, How to Save Life is nearly perfect. Nearly every song’s message contains key values and life lessons. “It’s so humbling to hear people connecting to these songs in such a strong way,” says Slade. Indeed, it must be, and The Fray is a band the Christian music realm can hopefully keep connecting with for many years to come.

    Who else loves to nap during the day, but are blinded by the sunlight streaming through those cheap camper blinds, and swear you’ll buy the fancy black out blinds for your camper next time??

    But if you’re like me, and super cheap, you probably never do! I have a TON of things in my “Save for Later” section of my Amazon cart, and I can tell you, nice blackout blinds are one of them!

    This is especially true after our first camp trip of the year with all 3 kids in a new sleep set up – my son moved to the top bunk (no window!) but my twins are now in the bottom where there is both a window and blinds… and the blinds seem especially fun when they are going to sleep! I imagine it’s like some fun crunchy baby toy in their eyes for them!

    Anyways, I wanted a quick and cheap way to do a couple of things – block out the light, help regulate the temperature a bit in our camper, as well as hopefully reduce the need to have those crunchy, cheap blinds that little kids love to wreck!

    These cost around 5 dollars to make each, and you can bump up their quality with additional material (or even the actual black out material they sell at the store!)

    How to create a hideout

    How to create a hideout

    Make your own DIY RV window blackout covers for cheap with just a few materials! You can modify this to make it more “blackout” as needed!


    • Tissue paper, contact paper, or some other thin, see through paper for tracing your window shape onto
    • Tape
    • Foam Board (You can get it at the dollar store)
    • Material enough to cover board (get enough for both sides if you want more black out and temp control power!)
    • Marker to trace


    • Hot glue gun
    • Exacto knife


    1. Tape your see through paper over your window. How to create a hideout
    2. Trace the contours of the window (you should be able to use the frame of the window as a guide) Remember, this is to be placed INSIDE the frame, so trace the inside, not the outside! (see pic) How to create a hideout
    3. Remove see through paper and tape it to your foam board How to create a hideout
    4. Start cutting out the window shape with an exacto knife Leave a small notch so that it’s easy removable!
    5. Once cut, make sure it fits by testing it in your window. It’s good to fit snug! How to create a hideout
    6. Bring it in the house to prepare to glue the material to the foam board. A note on materials – Mine was thin, so isn’t as “blackout” as some desire (and I only had enough for one side!), so make sure to pick a thick enough / dark enough material for your needs! They do sell black out material near the curtain fabric section in walmart!
    7. Trace around your foam board window, leaving an inch or two extra around it for gluing over the edge
    8. Glue all straight edges first
    9. Go back and do your corners (I’m no seamstress, but I found cutting them a bit helped to make them lay flat better!)
    10. Done!

    How did it go? Send me a picture!

    These work perfect for the windows that don’t open, such as our kitchen window in our camper. I do have an issue with our kids bunk window, as the slide handle sticks out and makes it not lay flat (don’t worry, I have a solution!) I think more of a traditional curtain style might be best, but instead we would use velcro to secure it all in place.

    Anyways, I’d love to see if you did it, or of any cool recommendations you have to make this even better! Now go on and enjoy that mid day nap so that I may live vicariously through you (with 3 kids 3 and under, it ain’t happening for awhile for me! =P )
