Camp Fire BasicsFirst things first:● Get an ignition source. We carry several different items that are great forstarting a fire.● Gather tinder. Tinder catches the initial spark from the ignition source andtransfers it to the kindling. If the kindling is damp or wet, the tinder must burnlong enough to dry out the kindling.● Gather kindling. Kindling needs a large surface to volume ratio (about 1/8" to1/2" diameter) and more bulk than tinder so it can ignite easily, producesustained concentrated heat and flame, and light the main fuel source.● Gather logs or other bulky fuel sources. Good fuels for sustained burninginclude dry wood that is 1" to 5" (2.5 cm to 12.5 cm) in diameter, twisted drygrasses, peat, dried animal dung and coal. Gather more fuel than you thinkyoull need, especially if youre going to sleep by the fire.
Starting the fireStarting the fireThe Next Step:● Clear a circular area about 4 feet (1.2 m) in diameter. Build a ring of rocks ordig a fire pit thats several inches deep using a shovel or hand trowel.Constructing a ring of stones will insulate the fire. Building a fire wall withlogs or rocks will reflect the fires heat, especially if youll only be on one sideof the fire (because otherwise the heat sent off in the other direction iswasted).● Pile kindling loosely in your fire ring or fire pit. You want your kindling closeenough to ignite but spaced enough for good air circulation. Place yourtinder on the pile of kindling. Light the fire with your ignition source andgradually add more kindling. Slowly blow air on the igniting fire to build heatand intensity.● Add firewood starting with the smallest sized pieces and working your wayup toward large pieces. The arrangement you choose will determine thefires longevity, how fast it burns, and how long your wood lasts.
