How To Make a Toy Ropeway (and other Searching Questions)

I know I’m not the only blogger who lies awake at night, wracked with guilt over the disappointed search engine users who stumble into my space hoping for something I don’t deliver. Every feel-good glow that comes from exceeding the expectations of someone who just wanted to know what an airline sick bag looked like is marred by a corresponding feeling of failure for the mysterious absence of “superb fill it ins” or “bonus large print”.

Bonus!

Well that’s one off the old conscience anyway.

Sometimes it’s their own fault. I’m not sure if Batu Caves is on the way to Malacca unless you give me another reference point to work with – ditto if you’re trying to budget a taxi “to” Springbrook National Park. But other times, the fault’s all mine: I really should have explained how we made our toy ropeway, in steps.

Today I’m going to try and make up for some of my worst offences. I’ll answer five search engine questions, and then list a few I couldn’t answer in case you can help. Here we are now:

1. how to make toy ropeway by steps

How to make a toy ropeway, step by step (and other searching questions).

This is step one. Step one is “gather your stuff”.

Step two: loop your twine around your first anchor point.

Step three: tie on your bucket.

Step three: tie on your bucket. Be sure to leave a loose end.

Step four: loop your twine around your second anchor point, and fasten it to the loose end near your bucket. Tidy away any excess.

Step five: adjust the tension as necessary by tying a thumb knot along one side of the ropeway. Play.

It’s basic, but it works.

2. ron milva weg

…is over here.

3. viewing mt fuji throughout a wasabi farm in shizuoka

That’s a fantastic idea. I wish we’d thought of it. Thanks for the suggestion, and check out Gotenba Wasabi no Sato on Must Love Japan.

4. campsite lighting ideas

Here’s my idea: don’t light your campsite. It sounds dangerous, not only to those at the campsite (who might be crawling around inside the tents) but also to the surrounding vegetation and, in the worst scenario, adjacent housing. Wasteful, too. If you must go ahead (say, for an experimental film project) the best idea is to get the proper permits, observe local advice on fire danger, and stand by with approved firefighting equipment in case things get out of hand.

5. trunki boostapak capacity

This is totally my bad. Before we bought ours, I wondered myself. Our trunki boostapak fits a 600ml water bottle, an ordnance survey map of Penzance and St Ives, a Handyman’s Encyclopaedia (by Andrew Waugh, published 1971, 512 pages, hardcover), an adult-sized pair of ski goggles, a child-sized snorkel, a tai chi fan (folded), a 120g packet of dehydrated noodles, an umbrella (also folded), a 60g packet of “five spicy dried beef” which we were gifted at one point but have not got around to eating, and a handful of old tissues. I hope that gives you some reference point.

I'm planning to use this picture later on in a post titled, "One tip for packing with a three year old", centred around the advice that they shouldn't do it alone.

Now it’s your turn:

1. please guide me i buy which wego new or second hand because i cant learnt to ride

Such a heartrending plea for information. If you have any advice, leave it below, or even if you can just tell me what a wego is.

2. how to wear grandma dresses

(I presume they’re looking for style tips, and not directions for getting them on, in which case two choices: over your head; or step in, pull up, then zip.)

If anyone can answer this, I’d love to know urgently. I need to get the hang of it fairly soon, before I enter an awkward phase in my grandma-dress-wearing cycle wherein I’ll be better off waiting til I’m an actual grandma.

3. what is a digital style bonsai

Tell me please! It sounds awesome.

Or at least speculate. I’ll take either.
