Bonfires are so fun — especially in the fall when the air is cool and crisp. And thanks to Essay Group, LLC — setting a bonfire just got a whole lot easier.

The new Light ‘n Go® log is an all-natural birch stump, kiln dried and engineered to light with one match. Just one! You can set it in a fire pit or even a fireplace. It’s portable, so take it with you on your next camping trip.

    To start a good fire when camping, take along some firestarters made before you leave! Get charcoal brickettes, a paper (empty) egg carton, some cotton batting and wax from old candles. Kids just love to make these–that's why we used them in GirlScouts. Put a small wad of cotton in an egg cup, place a piece of charcoal on top, then pour melted wax over the coal. Cool and break apart and store in plastic bag til later. When time for fire, put coal or two (or more if using for a cooking fire) on dry fire pit, light and add small twigs, then larger,, etc. til you have a fire. One note: each coal is "worth" 35 degrees of heat, so a hole with 10 coals will bake at 350 degrees.
