Testing fire making skills in minus 31°C.

What to do in the evening in Swedish Lapland when you don’t have any guests?

Well why not practice on fire making skills. It is a huge difference making a fire in plus degrees with dry wood in the summer compared to building one in 30 minus degrees (C) with frozen fuel. As you know the fire needs three things. Air, fuel and heat (the triangle of fire). 
I can assure you that if you have 30 minus degrees to start with it takes a lot more energy to build up the heat for a successful and sustainable fire. Add some snow to the situation and it might not be a walk in the park. Especially if you have frozen numbed fingers. One should never stop practicing on these vital survival skills that can save one’s life. That is why I took my axe and fire steel and went outside to practice on building myself a sustainable fire with frozen wood, in the snow! 
Sign up for a bushcraft and survival course and we will teach you how to make a fire in all kinds of weathers may it be raining cats and dogs or deep snow and very cold. Then keep on training and you will have a sure fire during any circumstances. 🍃🍃
