Lifestyle Tech Tips: Campfire-in-a-Carton

Campifre-in-a-Carton

I learned a trick from a park ranger at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee; he taught me how to make homemade fire-starters. You’ll need lint from a clothes dryer; a cardboard egg carton; and a taper candle. Place a little of the clothes-dryer lint into each of the egg-carton compartments. Light the candle and carefully drip the wax on top of the lint in each compartment to seal the components. Now you have fire-starters at a bargain price. To use, simply cut the individual egg sections apart and store them in your RV. When you’re ready for a campfire, place a section under the kindling and light a corner of your homemade fire-starter. Soon you’ll be talking of the day’s adventures by the warmth of a crackling fire.
