Chopping wood at Camp Bigfoot

Tim Fasano with the axe

We went camping this week and we needed a fire. We were at Hillsborough River State Park and the wood they sell you here are very large pieces. We needed smaller ones to get the fire going. Time to chop wood! First, you need an axe. Then,  strike the wood longways resting on a piece of wood. The smaller pieces help launch the burn of the fuel logs. We made a log cabin style which is good for cold nights when camping. With my new fire sticks, the campfire burned all night at the Bigfoot Campout.

The log cabin style of fire
You see it burns very nice
