Sometimes we like to go on spontaneous camping trips with friends to destress and just escape reality for a little while. But the thing about spontaneous camping trips is you never go prepared! How about if it gets chilly out and you didn’t bring a coat with you? What if you bought some s’mores along the way but forgot to grab matchsticks?
What if I told you that you can build a fire using a Ziploc bag and the sun? Yessir, you can. Of course, this trick only works if you’re camping out in daylight. For fire starting newbies, here are few of the things you’ll need:
- An empty Ziploc bag
- Sunlight, of course
- A dry wood bark smashed repeatedly with a rock until it turns to a fine powdery texture
- Dry, thin twigs
- Dry tinder nest (a bunch of dry long leaves or hay)
Be warned, this fire starting method requires a lot of patience. But it’s definitely a cool thing to add on your skill book and will be extremely useful for your next camping trips.
