Independent funding for a free lifestyle Locally available combustibles:

This group includes all those elements that you can burn in a campfire but can find locally, at the place where you camp. These include but are not limited to: wood, coal, small plants and dung.

More frequently than not you will be able to collect some kind of combustible materials around your campsite. However, there are a few exceptions and you may have to carry this material a relatively long distance.

For example, if you are crossing a mountain range, on the highest part of your trek you may not find vegetation but snow, rocks and ice. If you don't carry your own combustible, you may well have to pick some logs before you leave the forests, to use them while you are staying in the highest portion of the range or mountain.

In other cases, survival shelter could be located at a great distance from the combustible sources: a crashed airplane or distressed ship are a few examples.

Remember that even your own litter can be used as a combustible. This is particularly useful during long stays, because garbage could become a significant problem, both sanitary as well as environmental. We humans produce a lot of garbage, believe it or not!

Consequently, during long-term survival situations or expeditions, 'garbage management' should become an issue.

Last, but not least, on some regions you can take advantage of other natural resources, such as good and bad variants of coal, or even petroleum.
