National Preparedness Month Daily Challenge: Day 25

If you missed the previous challenges, you can catch up here:

Today’s Challenge

Is starting a fire something you do frequently? If you heat with wood, you’re probably just fine. If you do not, it’s a skill and you need to practice it from time to time.

So today, practice fire-starting. It may sound silly to people who do it all the time, but if you don’t do this often, it may not be as easy as you think. When we first moved to our cabin in the woods, it took me weeks to get a proper fire going in the woodstove.

If you are an accomplished firestarter, try starting your fires with a different tool, like a fire steel. This is also a great skill to teach your children.

What is your favorite way to start a fire?

Besides a lighter or matches (the easy ways), what is your favorite way to start a fire? Do you start fires frequently? Share how today’s challenge went for you.
