    Great idea you got there! Here in sub-tropical Florida, with the steamy humidity, the wood will often stay damp for weeks. Getting a fire to cook on, or even started, is a chore. When camping, I always bring my pre-made fire-starter from home. I have a large size vitamin bottle with a relatively wide mouth that I fill with clothes dryer lint. On top of that I pour a little candle wax on the lint about every one inch in height. This will usually burn reliably for a while between two small, parallel sections of log. As the lint burns I often need to feed it with small twigs and dried leaves to keep it going. When started I just rest my small stainless pot on top. It is a amazing how many wildfires we get here in Florida in the rainy season, and how difficult it is to get a campfire going in the dry times.

    Enjoy your work here…
