Learning to start a fire in the woods is a skill everyone should learn. Fire can keep you warm, cook your food, purify your water, and keep predators at bay. However getting a fire started is only the beginning. It is harder than you think to keep a campfire going all night. Traditionally you will have to keep adding wood to the fire throughout the night, cutting into your sleep significantly.

Far North Bushcraft and Survival has a great video on their YouTube channel which teaches how to make a campfire last all night. Check out the video below.
