Good idea. However, when building any fire, especially one that you are planning to let burn for many hours, possibly unattended throughout the night, you really should clean the area around it of burnable materials.

we must think the same

Now I can make a better fire than my camping friend who thinks he knows it all.

Well presented, informational and entertaining. The presenter is very clear and concise as well as calm in front of the camera. I'm going to watch the rest of the videos and add to my knowledge. Thanks!
