It’s a romantic experience to play guitar and sing by the campfire in the evening. However, if you don’t master the skills of making a campfire, there will be many problems.
If you want to succeed in getting a campfire, the first step is to choose the right location.
Because campfire during camping involves fire prevention and environmental protection, many factors need to be taken into account in site selection. When you are ready to make a campfire, make sure your campsite is allowed to use it.
If you have an old fire in your camp, you should give priority to using it, which can save time, labor and reduce the impact on the environment.
Campfire location is best to choose sand or stone ground, and ensure that there is no combustible within 60-90cm.
Step two: prepare firewood.
Fast and safe fire and reduce smoke, reasonable preparation of firewood is the key. The best way to prepare firewood is to pick up dead branches around the camp instead of cutting down trees.
It needs two materials to ignite the fire step by step. First, ignite the fire and then let it burn continuously.
Kindling: something dry and brittle, such as dry leaves, bark, or twigs.
Combustibles: a thick branch or log that burns for a long time.
Third step:place firewood.
When you have collected enough firewood around the camp, you need to stack it reasonably and then light it. Professional stacking will make it easy for you to ignite firewood, and don’t forget to bring kindling.
Take a thick branch and wedge it into the ground. The end of the branch should be firm. Place other branches against it to form a yurt shape with a gap in the middle to push the fire forward.
If it fails, rebuild the fire, add more igniters and combustion aids, or use alcohol cotton and fruit charcoal to help ignite. Don’t sprinkle gasoline or alcohol on firewood. It’s dangerous. Do not use the burner to ignite, which may cause explosion of the gas tank.
