It’s definitely a different way of building a fire, but it will make sense after you see how it’s done.
This upside down fire technique is great if you like a “set it and forget it” fire. This will burn 2-3 hours, or longer depending on how big you build it.
Give this a try next time you build a fire.
Great for use while camping, or would come in handy in a survival situation. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how well it works. Our favorite part of this fire is NO BABYSITTING.
There’s no messing with the kindling or logs. This give your more time to worry about cooking or visiting with friends, or sleeping. Go ahead and watch the video now.
You won’t find ghost stories on any camping list. But you must pack a couple. It’s what makes camping so memorable, especially for the kids.
You know how in Little House on the Prairie, Pa would relax by the fire after a hard day’s toil, put little Gracie on his lap, light his pipe, then starts telling stories? Families don’t bond like that anymore.
So when you have driven 3 hours to your campsite, built a roaring fire, and relaxing with your family in the cool night sky, do not blow the opportunity! Have a ghost story ready to tell.
My favorite one is “Where is My Golden Arm?” This one is so old and has gone through so many variations, don’t feel bad if you make it up as you go along. The basic idea is about a woman with a golden arm. She got her husband to promise to bury her beloved arm with her when she died. He did so. Then he fell on hard times or whatever variation you choose, and remembered the valuable treasure he buried. So he dug it up. Well, his dead wife’s ghost came looking for it.
To hear an audio recording of “Where is My Golden A-a-a-r-R-M-M”, drop by my blog post by clicking here: http://snipr.com/ghost1 . But really, any thing you make up along that story line is good enough.
Now, how you tell the story is as important as the story itself. Follow these story-telling tips for a memorable experience.
