We had just landed from a long day of shooting and paddling. The night before, howling 60kph winds threatened to flatten our tent. And now some 20hrs later… the water like glass. I specialize in epic experiences. Mostly my own. This was one of those days.
No better way to warm up than… 🔥 @wolfandgrizzly . . . #iceland #islandia #fire #glacial #icebergs #travelstoke #adventuresdoneright
Throwback to this time last year on location @7thrise with @wolfandgrizzly . A shoot of my boyhood dreams, playing with fire and axes in the woods. So many faves but here are a few. Let me know what you think.
I think that the best part about backpacking and camping is sitting down by the fire after a long day of hiking and finally getting to eat dinner. I dream about what I’ll eat all day long: maybe a burger, breakfast for dinner, pasta, or Thai food. Mmmmm.
What I haven’t given much thought to in the past is how I’ll eat it. I’ve had the same plastic reusable camping cutlery set for years, and it has definitely seen better days. So I was excited to try out the new titanium cutlery set from @wolfandgrizzly! This fork and spoon set is lightweight, durable, and DISHWASHER SAFE! This makes post-camping cleanup a lot easier 🙌 I’ve been using it on all my trips over the last month and I love it so far (and definitely retired my old set in favor of this one)!
What do you use to eat in the backcountry? And what’s your favorite camping meal?
Fire Set works by striking steel against a Ferrocerium rod which produces extremely hot sparks - up to 2980 C (5400 F)! Just make sure you have a nice bed of tinder and kindling for your sparks to fall into.
For Fire Set to work properly, use a highly flammable material as a catch for your sparks. We recommend using Spark Fiber or a cotton ball dabbed with a bit of petroleum jelly.
1. For optimal performance, use Spark Fiber or a cotton ball dabbed with some petroleum jelly as a catch for your sparks.
2. Prepare your kindling, such as birch bark or dry twigs.
3. Scrape off the black paint covering the ferro rod.
4. Set the ferro rod against Spark Fiber.
5. Use the top edge of the striker to apply pressure and strike firmly.
Your Fire Set doesn’t need much cleaning or long term care. Make sure to keep the ferro rod and striker clean of any dirt, grease, etc. that could hinder the ability to strike and spark cleanly.
