How to build a self-feeding campfire

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.

Sure, memories are made when family and friends gather round the campfire, but building that fire can be a hassle. Keeping it going on a cold night can be even worse – especially when you just want to get some sleep after a day spent hiking.

Self-Feeding Campfire

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 really come in handy especially when you’re going to be in the woods for a longer time!

Now there are certain aspects that you need to consider in building a successful self-feeding campfire. You would need to learn about the right frame angle and air flow among others.

To learn all these things about building a self-feeding fire, watch the video tutorial below. 🙂
