Making a fire in wet weather can be very difficult, especially when you are unsure of the best materials to use. Without special knowledge, the extraction of fire can take an hour, or it may not give any result at all. Therefore, you should remember which things of those that are literally at hand in the forest burn best.
In order to make it easier to make a fire in wet weather, special, most suitable materials should be used. First of all, it is necessary to search for and use coniferous trees for ignition. Pine twigs work best. This is because they contain a large amount of resin - sap, and it always burns perfectly, even at extremely high humidity.
Note: It is also recommended to use coniferous logs for ignition. However, before putting them on the fire, you will have to separate the bark. This is because the bark quickly and in large quantities accumulates moisture. Coniferous wood warms up quickly and burns well. After that, you can use other firewood, including raw ones.
The second important material to look for for lighting in wet weather is birch bark. The bark will have to be removed from the tree, so this method should only be used in frankly extreme cases. The birch cover contains a large amount of resin and accumulates much less moisture. Of course, you need to look for materials as dry as possible.
Important: Birch trees are less likely to rot and become rotten, which is why birch firewood is so good for a fire.
Another very important parting word when making a fire in a damp forest. If you have to make fire right in the rain, you should either look for a natural shelter from it, or at least build a small canopy over the place where the fire is made, which will protect it from falling drops of water. Always light a fire from below! Trying to do it from the side or from above is useless work.
Continuing the topic, we will tell how to light a fire with a bag and not only.
