Damp Wood Fire

Quick clip of a small fire in the oak woods, boiling some water. Pretty wet wood that day, however managed to find some dry birch bark for tinder. Also managed to 'pocket dry' some dead grass or fionan. Then the gathered firewood needed to be skinned of it's moss and bark, leaving a reasonably dry core within - which kept the fire going.
