You like camping, but you went out of camp and it went out to rain? Don't worry! We tell you how to light a campfire with rain.
Lighting a campfire with rain is sometimes a difficult task, but not impossible. To do this, it is best to follow these steps:
Thinking about the alternatives we have and not rush, that will avoid bad decisions and waste of time.
Get a shelter
You should have peace of mind that while we can get a little cold , while we're on the move this won't be so serious.
On the other hand, if falling water is a problem, lighting the stove inside the shelter could be a solution, although care should be taken about smoke and flammable materials.
The last step to light a campfire with rain is to make a dry platform (earth, trunk, stones, sand, etc.) where the fire will be lit, avoiding making a well because it could be filled with water.
Collect a good amount of dry tinder. You can get it from fallen branches naturally protected by the tree, under rocks and layers of leaves, plus any flammable material you may have dry inside your belongings.
Add dry firewood. Good results can be obtained by taking a small trunk and splitting it into two, because inside it can become dry. You can also try to remove the wet outer crust with a knife.
Collect more firewood and bring it closer to the fire to remove moisture. Then place it in a safe place and out of reach of moisture.
Be patient, but keep faith. Lighting a campfire with rain can take a long time, but with the right materials the task is entirely possible.
