Self-Feeding Campfire

How to: Self-feeding fire for your next camping trip

Self-Feeding Campfire

Camping is a great way to take a break and escape from the usual business of life. Whether it’s for a weekend or a week, the respite allows you to recharge despite roughing it out with mother nature. It also provides lots of fun activities that will keep you entertained throughout your getaway…

But as much as we love camping, there are also some things about it that we don’t quite enjoy – like a cold night. The unbearable cold or the need to keep the campfire going can keep you up all night!

The good news is this self-feeding campfire idea is available to help solve that problem! It provides around 14 hours of steady fire, perfect for letting you sleep cozily and undisturbed during the night!

It takes a little longer to build than other campfires, but it’s still easy to do!

It’s a nice technique to know and one that could come in handy especially when you’re going to be in the woods for a longer time!
