Guess everyone will have to take all the time they use to read and post on FRF and go out and make some fire starters!

Or not!

I understand your situation completely and if we lived closer together, I would not have any problems making you a bag full.

I am not sure what your statement means, and I am not that smart to figure it out, but all this is is a money saving Idea so you don't have to make them just go buy them. I can understand that some people may not have time for it and that's fine.

ScottnKimmel, I thought that is what it was, but you will have to forgive me I have been under the weather since last Thursday and have been out of work for a few days with some concerns and maybe I read more into it then what it is. Thanks for the reply and keeping me straight.

No worries.

Get better quick! Seems this season the viruses and flu's are pretty bad. We know a bunch of people that have had a tough time. Hope you feel better fast.

Fire starter

I used this method after getting the idea from a fellow camper. I took the cardboard core for large rolls of paper. I then cut them about 1.25" thick. Then I soak them in either Coleman fuel or kerosene (I know, flammable fluids again) for a couple of days. I place it in the middle of the ring and stack wood on top of it and just start the core. This has been working great for me and I made a bunch ahead and wrapped them individually in foil. The core will burn for a long time.
