I would not bring one and I do build fires. As stated dried wood of the right size is easy to break. Even in high use areas fire wood is pretty easy to find just walk a little farther.

It's a very fair price and if I could afford it I would buy it. I can't believe your price is this low and no one has bought it. Hope it sells for you soon. I started to itch at $255
