Fire and Water Yuma AZ

Fires can make be the highlight of an evening spent under the stars or destroy acres of forest.

Fire and Water

Friend or foe?

Oh, the irony. Fires can make be the highlight of an evening spent under the stars or destroy acres of forest. Water can quench our thirst, float canoeists to remote locations or wash your tent away in a flash flood. With a little planning and Mother Nature permitting, it shouldn't be too hard to get what you want, in the desired quantities.

Fire

Matches

Although lighters might seem easier and more convenient, they can be temperamental, run out of fuel or malfunction when damp. Storm proof matches light when wet and are even windproof, but require a special striker. Strike Anywhere matches work on any rough surface but must be kept dry. No matter which model you choose, matches are a must, especially in backcountry regions or wilderness zones.

Even though these cost more than the freebies from your favorite bar, don't try to save money by scrimping on matches. They're affordable, lightweight and you'll always use more than you think.

Many outdoor enthusiasts also carry flint in case of an emergency. Shaved off with a knife , it turns heat from any source into a flame. It's highly flammable, so use it sparingly.

Tempting as it may be, never use gasoline or other flammable liquids to start a fire. Dangerous and unpredictable, these liquids are more suited to burning down entire forests than charbroiling fish.

Whether you are planning a day trip or a multi-day excursion , it is always a good idea to bring more water and food than you think you'll need. When forced to choose between the two, always opt for the water. Although you're likely to get grumpy, you can live for weeks without food but only a few days without water.
