as you cant have a fire i will allow you to take a fire pit or BBQ type thing to have a fire in, this would be a free item, the way you light it and your fuel should come from the woods or will count as items....Still thinking about doing this, can't decide how I should do it. I'm thinking:
-Loaf of bread
I'd like to build and maintain a firebundle through the day and evening, hiking through to a sheltered spot, and use it to set a fire with a frying stone to cook my eggs once the sun has gone done. Maybe a bit risky, if the fire fails I'm stuffed, never tried a bowdrill so I wouldn't have any real alternative ways of getting a fire going. Blanket as a bivi on a fallen leaf bed, or on the off chance theres a storm rigged as a tarp.
Fires are illegal here tho' so I'm trying to think up interesting alternative ideas. I'll usually build a fire but it's really dry in August which makes me paranoid about starting a forest fire..
Yep exactly. It's been relatively wet this year from what I've gathered, we had lots of storms in July but August has just dried everything out.I'm guessing they're illegal too. This time of year the fire risk in forests in southern Europe is frightening and you'd be insane to start any kind of a fire.
