Platform fire

If you find yourself in need of a fire and the ground is snow covered, wet, or muddy try building a platform fire. Using either flat stones or straight green logs make a platform that is twice the size of the fire you will be making(4'x4' is a good size). Now build a teepee style fire on top the platform. This is a great method when moisture is stopping you from getting a fire built because it raises the fire off the wet ground and allows better airflow.
