Carry a roll of jute twine with you. A couple of sparks and that stuff fires right up.

We went camping last weekend and one of the campers with us pulled out his blow torch. I found that funny to see that listed here. It actually does work really well, didn't even have kindling, just torched the logs and instant campfire.

something we started using on our last camping trip that seems to work very well....the thin little shims you can get at home improvement stores and molded saw dust--my husband found this things and they are awesome. It's like a ball of sawdust and some type of waxy stuff cut in half. I didn't have to use any type of lighter fluid or gas or any other fire starter and we had a beautiful fire that lasted all night long!

Well I cheat, if your not backpacking, just throw a bag of kingsford matchless charcoal in the truck or camper. I put a pile of charcoal in the firepit, stack my wood on it and light it. In a few minutes I have a nice fire going. Too easy!! LOL
