Fire Craft. How to make fire in the Oregon wet
Here, we experience heavy winter rainfall and high humidity conditions. Two good reasons why I offer this course during the wet time of year.
It’s wet and I can't start a fire!
It’s one thing to practice building a camp fire during the warm and dry months of summer. But add driving rain and howling wind to the mix. Now you have perfect conditions to test and challenge your fire-making skill.
I’m down to my last match!
As someone who appreciates the skill it takes to make fire in extreme conditions. You will learn and apply a variety of ways to make fire during class. We will cover wooden and paper matches, lighters, flints, and magnesium. You will learn to use plant and tree materials and where to find the best kindling and tinder.
I'm cold and sopping wet!
Understanding the mechanics and science behind fire making is important for success. We know that without enough oxygen for combustion we will have poor results. And we also know that not having enough dry fuel will make it difficult to make a good hot fire.
Fire Craft makes the difference!
The difference between an uncomfortable night out or a life threatening one. Mastering fire empowers you for success in wet and hypothermic conditions.
Where you will succeed, others fail.
