How to Start a Fire in Rain or Wet Conditions Part 1

How to Start a Fire in Rain or Wet Conditions Part 1

 

A short how to video demonstrating starting a camp fire in rain, wet, or damp conditions. We also demonstrate different types of tinder that can be ignited with a ferrocerium (ferro) rod and striker. The weather cleared up as we were outside, it truly was raining as we walked in and had been raining most of the day so everything was wet. As we arrived it started to let up and as you can see towards the end it turned out to be a nice evening. Part 2 will be in the rain and will focus more on the “doing” of the topics covered in this video.
