Lighting a good fire when in the backcountry can be good moral booster on those lonely nights when you’re sitting around camp. Knowing exactly how to get a fire going can be crucial if you are in a situation when a fire needs to be a life saver. Most of the time we carry fuel, or aids to get a good fire going. But how many times have we wished we had more than one match to get our fire going?

Backpacking Magazine shows us in this video how to light a good fire with just one match.


I created TheBackpackerTV because of my passion for the outdoors and seeing nature up close and personal. To share my experiences, and the experiences of others for everyone to enjoy. We go watch hundreds of videos each month picking the very best for you. Enjoy!
