Backcountry Fire Building by Backpacking Light

This outstanding video by Backpacking Light featuring Sam Haraldson (A member of thebackpacker.tv) outlines some techniques in fire building.

“Fire building videos on the Internet are a dime a dozen, but each and every one of them can teach you a thing or two. However, building a fire is nothing short of an art form, so no one can teach you everything you’d need to know to perfect it in a ten-minute video.

Instead of attempting to do this (perfect your form) you’ll find that we’ve simply highlighted some of the gear and techniques used to start a fire. A short description of the fire triangle, finding fuel, and other quick tips are included as well.

Watch for a quick intro to these techniques and discuss some of your own on the Backpacking Light forums”
