Technically, that's neither hatchet, nor axe. It's a tomahawk. It's the CRKT Woods Chogan.

Most of our camping is Ontario Provincial Parks. We carry a hatchet, axe, buck saw to cut wood as needed. We often buy near the park gate vendors just outside, As far as collecting wood or branches you are not suppose to do this, the environmental cycle keeps the forest strong. I also scrounge sites when people leave, often a few pieces are left behind.

I've started carrying some cedar shim shingles in my TT. They're easy to break if you want shorter or thinner pieces, don't take up any room, and you don't have to worry about getting them to start burning.

Bring your own firewood and kindling. That way you know what you got. I figure so many chucks of wood per nite and bring a tote of pine board scraps for kindling. Cover it and nobody knows what you got.

Please do not transport firewood. Your camp fire is not worth the potential loss of an entire forest due to invasive insects.

My father used me for the sawsall/splitter/loader and all around cheap labor. Did not realize it at the time, seems it made me turn in early.
