Natural Fatwood Torch and Pine Sap Lamp Once an idea forms, there is no stopping this run away train. Although, watching a piece of wood burn for a couple hours may not sound that exciting, it was good enough for us during a period of fire bans that were in place throughout much of the region. The piece of wood from the pine tree was very heavy with resin, and lighting it on the uncut end seemed the right thing to do. The result was a long burning fatwood torch. Also, we put some pine sap into a walnut shell as an experimental lamp. The shell ignited sooner than expected, but did produce a nice amount of light for its size. And, we look at some of the grub being cooked around the campfire.

Fatwood Is Water Resistant In wet conditions, fatwood can be a great way to get a campfire started. Look for dead Pine trees that have fallen and have been decaying for a while. This will expose the heartwood. Go for the heart wood or where the limbs of the tree meet the trunk. It will look like honey when it starts to solidify. The smell will be very strong of pine. Fatwood can also be harvested from dead Spruce or Fir trees in the same manner. Fatwood... Natures best natural fire starter! :-)
What Is Fatwood? For more daily "prepisodes" visit my blog at . Be sure to check out Jeepinator239 at http I recently got some fatwood from Jeepinator, our good friend and fellow prepper.

It's saturated with pitch, so it's EXTREMELY flammable, and burns for a long time. It's like the candle version of wood. Some people even claim they can light their fatwood tinder when it's soaked. All this amounts to one thing--fatwood makes awesome tinder.
