  • Build the Perfect Camp Fire

    Learning to build the perfect camp fire is a great skill to master for those cold night camp fires. Be sure to come and see us at Randburg Midas before your next camping trip for all the gear you will need! So, now you’re really ready to go. You’ve got a site, collected your tinder, kindling, and fuel wood and now you just need to put it all together. How are you going to build your campfire? The way you assemble your wood before lighting it is called the Fire Lay and there are a few classic methods to use, depending on what you will use your fire for. I nearly always start with a teepee unless I’ve been asked to create a large council fire for entertainment. Whatever type of fire you decide to make, keep these things in mind: Plan where you will light it – leave an opening to reach the tinder. Light the upwind side so the wind blows the flame into the fuel. Leave air space between pieces of wood. Build UP, not OUT. Create a higher pile of wood rather than a flatter pile. Teepee Fire This is my favorite and I believe the most useful and easiest to light. The key is to stick a few sticks into the ground to supply support for the rest of the kindling. Place your tinder bundle on the ground or on a small piece of bark. Stick three or four kindling twigs in the ground to form a teepee above the tinder. Lean small kindling twigs against the downwind side of the tinder. Leave an opening on the upwind side all the way to the center tinder where you can light the fire. Continue to lean twigs around the teepee structure. Work your way up to pencil-sized sticks, leaving plenty of air space between sticks. Poke three or four pencil-sized sticks into the ground forming a larger teepee structure. Lean some smaller fuelwood pieces against this support structure. Have additional small fuelwood and kindling ready in case it is needed. This style produces a fast flame and quickly falls into itself in a pile of coals. The heat is directed up to a single point and is useful for boiling water in a single pot above the teepee. Once the teepee collapses, fuelwood can be laid around it like a log cabin or just criss-cross on top of the flames. Log…
