    ok if ur wanting to start a campfire easy here are the instructions :)

    here is the tender
    1.DRYER lint(yes right out of your dryer
    2.shreaded paper
    3.sawdust
    4.woodchips(like out of a chainsaw)


    mix this together and u got some GREAT FIRE tender
    the lint is what will burn for a while
    get a handful of this stuff and it will burn a good flame for 4-7min(depending on the lint mainly)


    just put this on the bottom, then super small twigs, then bigger ones, then biger sticks, then the main logs, TP style


    if u dont believe me just TRY IT:smile2:



    thanks Jeff

    Yep I can attest that dryer lint works well, almost as well as a shirt with a string. I have another idea for you also that may help. get a piece of cardboard and some candle wax melt the candle down and cover one side of card board with wax when it covered and while it is still warm roll it up wax side out and tie it up I tie every 4 inches are so and then cut the sections out and store. there you go small cheap stater logs.

    You can also use Frito Lay cornchips. Done it.
