there are some rally good ideas here, the one time i tried starting a fire was a lesson in humility. I went up to rescue a sled (snowhawk) that had blown its motor, we couldn't drag it out so we went up to rebuild the motor there..

well a few hours for 25-30 degrees standing around a downed sled and a 10 mph breeze ya kind a get on the frigid side. So i decided to make a quick fire, I soaked some twigs in gasoline and they would light but that was about it they were dry and wouldn't even burn there just wasn't enough heat to start the wood on fire, eventually I got out the siphon tube I carry and I would fill that like a straw and release it on the "fire"....it took me an hour to get it to self sustain. I was at about 9000 ft.

so I plan on using lots of fuel and a can sounds like a really good idea. I am thing of a pet food can with a plastic seal type lid. with fire "stuff" inside, matches, flint, dryer lint and Vaseline, fire goo, etc...anything that is used to make a fire..

I have drier lint in bags, 3 lighters, waterproof matches, a homemade egg carton fire starters made from cutting an egg carton up into individual little egg pockets then filling with drier lint and pellets from a wood pellet stove and covering in wax to keep it all together and dry. I keep the egg carton deals in each car also.

Also a couple fusies (road flares)

All in my sled backpack.......... I no longer have a sled, I hate my life.

another great thing that i found was weber(bbq) sells these white starting squares for their briquits (sorry bad spelling today) and as soon as i put any sort of flame to it, it lit instantly and held a flame for well over 5-10 minutes. long enough to get a fire started if you had tinder to keep it going.

also, if trying to start a fire in the snow, and you don't want to dig down to the ground, take a bunch of pine tree branches with the green needles on them still, place those down in the snow flat. build your fire on top of that, that way the heat won't instantly melt the snow and put your fire out. once the green branches burn through, you have a well maintained fire...
