Summer is almost here. Soon, we’ll be taking our yearly tradition camping trips. Unfortunately for me, it is my job to get the nightly fires started. I don’t exactly have the best track record with that. Thanks to bad weather or wet wood, I will from time to time have issues getting a good fire started. Thanks to Walden Sure-Fire Fire-starters, I can get a roaring fire in just a few minutes.
The concept of the fire starters is simple. Light it on fire, place it in your fire pit and place your wood around and over it. And really that’s all you need to do. The fire starter will burn for 15-20 minutes, which is plenty of time for you to get a nice fire running. Of course, don’t just light one and expect it to light massive logs on fire. You should still practice good fire starting techniques, such as starting with twigs and brush and moving up to larger pieces.
What I like most about the Walden Sure-Fire starters is the fact that they are made out of mostly all recycled material. When it comes to the bare bones of it, Walden Fire Starters are simply made of shredded newspaper, stuffed into a toilet paper tube, then soaked in wax. That’s really all it takes. The first time we used ours, we had a fire up in running in just a couple of minutes. There was no hassle, and it sure beats trying to start a fire with rolled up newspaper and pine needles. We were able to test ours out while also reviewing our Barbeqa Marshmallow sticks. The rest, while I’m saving them for the summer.
