We look at all six methods of fire lighting also tinder both natural and man made and where to source them.Where should you site your fire the do's and don'ts of finding the right spot. Kindling how much do we need how big should it be.We will also look at various types of fire lays for specific conditions i.e. Windy conditions or creating a good cooking fire.
