Campers know that starting a fire is one of the most difficult things when your far from civilization. Carrying fire starting equipment is a good idea for anyone who doesn't want to get caught out in the cold. The best fire starting gear will come with a special container to stay dry even in driving rain or other bad weather. Without fire, you can't cook your food. And if you are hiking in cold weather, you can't stay warm. At night, you won't be able to see. So make sure you have fire starting equipment to you and everyone you go camping with safe and secure.
