Building a Fire When It's Wetfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
Adventures in the wilds of nature will always require one importatnt thin -- fire. Fire gives you warmth and comfort when sleeping during a crisp, chilly night and also provides light that helps you move around the campsite. With a fire burning in your camp at night, it can also protect you against wild animals because they'll tend to stay away.
Fire is an important part of your adventure for comfort, cooking and safety and it's quite easy to build a campfire, but not so if it's been raining and the ground is wet, in fact, without the ability to build a campfire, you might encounter problems large enough to cancel your adventure altogether. However, here's some advice on how to create fire even when it's wet outside.
1. Always be prepared for the weather. You should always bring along matches and chemical fire starters and keep them in a dry, secured place. A good fire is hard to build if it's been raining and could make your other stuff unusable. You might find something dry to burn, such as tree branches and sticks since the more important thing you need is something combustible to start a fire.
2. You can plan ahead and keep some clean twigs inside your stove's fuel bottle. Three or four sticks soaked in fuel will light regardless of how rainy it's been. These sticks will start any campfire that's reluctant to blaze.
3. Search for an area protected from moisture. Large trees, big rocks and other natural structures can shield an area where you can start a fire. If you're in a real campsite, look for an enclosed fire pit and use them to build a fire.
4. Bring non-flammable tarps. If all else fails and there just isn't any ground dry enough for a campfire, use any non-flammable canvas you brought with you. Lay it on the ground and throw on some usable sticks and twigs and your fire will be ready in no time.
5. Dig a fire pit. This is most applicable during the winter when there snow covers the ground everywhere. Start by clearing the snow away. If you the ground seems to be too hard for you to dig, you can may use a fire tray or a fire ring instead, so make sure you always pack these and have them available if needed.
Your outdoor camping adventure shouldn't stop when it rains, so remember these tips and consider it just another challenge to make your adventure more interesting.
