How to build a winter campfire (in Swedish!)

Posted on March 22 2016, by Gladys Breckenridge

The Swedes are good at many things. Meatballs. Abba. Affordably priced flat-pack furniture. 1970s soft porn. And, enjoying the winter. 

We've talked about building a campfire before. And building one in the winter may seem daunting, but it follows the same rules. (Like pick up tinder as you go.)

This short video by "The Man in the Fjällräven Shirt", does an excellent job of explaining in Swedish (with subtitles) how to build a roaring fire in the snow.
