TIPS FOR MAKING A FIRE

I was Girl Scout once, and by looking at me now you might or might not believe me..I used to sail every summer for weeks in small sailboats. That first summer was the scariest ever..picture this me a young girl for the first time sailing with a boy I did not know..him puking all over the boat, and only wanting my mom. I still remember it with horror..the good thing however was that it made me tougher then I already was..plus I learned a great many things that I still use to this day..

Like how to successfully build a fire:

  • You need as dry wood as possible – or else you will have a serious problem
  • Place the logs with some room from each other
  • Do not pile on to many logs as a start only a few will do, and then put on more as the fire really gets going
  • I always start with small logs – one a bit bigger in the back, and then two/three in front as a cross
  • I always tend to use ignition briquettes but not more than a few under the logs in the front
  • Get as much air in their as possible it will help it burn better

do you have any tips ?
