HowTo: Smokey the Bear Learns to Start a Fire

Here in North Coast NSW, we get a surprise when it gets cold at night. We get the same surprise every night for 6 weeks every year.

Our houses are designed for summer. Open spaces, wide verandahs. No central heating because ‘it never gets cold’. In fact, in June and July it is colder inside the house than outside. Consequently, each June there is a scramble for firewood.

Around here I’m known as Smokey the Bear – I can put any fire out, especially if I’m actually meant to be starting it. Perhaps if I watch this video from monkeysee videos I’ll be able to rehabilitate myself. Looks easy enough.


If you need to start an outdoor fire, lifehacker this week shows the way.
