When humans discovered how to make fire, everything changed for the better. We gained the ability to cook our food, keep warm, and use heat to produce more advanced tools and materials. But in our modern world we can easily exist without the need to ever use open flame. Still, no one brags about how they can’t build a fire. On the contrary – most people are embarrassed after a failed attempt, while their respective camping buddies mocking their measly efforts. Our advanced world sometimes leaves us in an ironic primitive state.
No matter what season it is, you should know how to build a fire fast and effectively. In the summer, you may be out camping, or in the back yard with some marshmallows. In colder months you may want to clean out the fireplace to get cozy with some added warmth. Either scenario can quickly become a catastrophe when plans of a solid blaze go awry.
