Yeah I can see that.
Some denatured alcohol works really well in a pinch to get a fire starter. I still joke around with my dad because he seems to need some on my overnights with him to get a fire going. The wood is usually wet through. Once the fire gets going, we set the wet wood next to the fire to dry out.
The park in Cincy Doctari and I went to only has 1-2 rangers on duty at a time. They are usually busy pulling over speeders or watching boaters on the lake.
Try a torso pad underneath if you can. I was amazed how much I get chilled when my back/butt gets chilled.
