Go! Camp & Drive - - Contents - Text Do­minic Wien­and and Schalk Jonker Pho­tos Do­minic Wien­and

That video has been shared more than once on your Face­book feed or on a camp fo­rum... Some smart alec uses or­di­nary house­hold items to throw to­gether some­thing you have to buy at the shop. And while you watch the video, you won­der if this plan will re­ally work. We were tired of wondering and de­cided to put some of the in­ter­net’s fire starter ideas to the test. We used kin­dling for the test and if that burnt prop­erly, the fire starter was a suc­cess. But if you in­tend on get­ting the huge logs you bought at a garage in Jef­freys Bay to burn with th­ese guys, you are go­ing to se­ri­ously test your pa­tience.
