Getting a campfire going on the trail can be a real challenge, especially when dry kindling is nowhere to be found. That’s why we love the Light My Fire’s Tinder-on-a-Rope ($2.50, lightmyfire.com). This stick of tinder comes from natural pine/fatwood stumps that have a resin content of 80 percent. It’s that resin that makes this tinder light quickly and burn hot. Whenever you’re ready to light a fire, simply use your knife to shave a few fresh pieces off the Tinder stick. Once you have a small pile of shavings, light your fire and you’re good to go!
