I hate to tell you, but most wilderness areas in the Southwest have long banned open fires. No responsible backpacker (and by that I mean someone who goes deep into the back-country regularly, bot a car camper) would build a camp fire if his/her life depended on it. It is just not ethical in this day and age.

There are plenty of high-tech stoves to be bought everywhere.
Cocked, locked, and ready to rock!

Every day I face Ogden, Utah, and pray that God might bless John Moses Browning.

A single stick of dynamite will create fire and splinter wood, two will feed you all the fish you can eat in a month.

I donít start a fire unless I am wet and cold hiking. Some people along the AT fire some donít if you do you need to be careful with it. Have a ring, a way to put it out, and so on. I donít want a fire going that freaking long so I donít really worry about the big stuff.

My rule of thumb is if you canít break it it probably isnít going to burn well. So I donít saw or cut I break. Get enough to burn no more than an hour or two at the most. Smaller is better.
