Set the foundations of your fire. There are many accepted shapes but we like the fire lay for a wide range of weather conditions.
Lay one of your larger bits of wood flat – with your twigs and leaves lent against it like a half roof, with your igniters underneath.
Face your structure toward the wind to ensure you aren’t starving your flame, with enough protection that it isn’t blown out.
Lighting the fire can be achieved depending on your loadout, with a key for both being: Protect your flame from the wind.
SURVIVAL: Ferrocerium rod can be used to create sparks to ignite your kindling if you’re saving your matches.
ADVENTURE: Your home made fire lighters will drastically help with the initial ignite. You can also save yourself some calories and use your crisps to help the ignition!
