A basic fire-making kit could include waterproof matches, a lighter, firestarter and/or a candle (e.g., small tealight). Simple items like these can be vital to staying warm enough outdoors during a change in the weather, an injury or an unplanned overnight. A small fire can keep you warm, dry wet clothes, cook food, signal where you are, melt snow or boil water, keep animals at bay, and also improve your mood—all key to surviving unexpected stays in the woods.
