Come on baby start my fire

Starting a fire is one of the most important survival skills necessary to live in an outdoor environment. We need a fire to cook, boil water so that it is safe to drink and for warmth. Starting a fire is not difficult but you do not always get the best conditions to do it in.

We here at Barre Army Navy Store have a lot of different fire starters http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/fire-building-c467.aspx. All seem popular. What is your favorite.

The best way to get a fire going the best way is to have a good fire starter and good tinder (Dryer Lint, Birch Bark and Toilet Paper are just a few ideas).

Then start small with dry branches or shavings and build the fire slowly and gradually.

Tell us your favorite fire starter, preferred tinder and what was the toughest conditions you ever needed to start a fire in.

I keep dryer lint and cotton balls soaked in vaseline in my survival kit. I also keep alcohol swab in my medical kit (I am diabetic), they also work as a good fire starter.

Starting a fire in a driving Florida rainstorm was one of the most challanging trials of my camping career.
