So I am a bit of a "bush craft" nut.
If you dont know what I mean think Bear Grylls, or Les Stroud. :)
Well today I finally got a "field fire" started using only natural tinder and a flint and steel. I was SO excited!!!!! When that "birds nest" started smoking I was TOTALLY not expecting it as I have been trying for months! :)
But yes... I MADE FIRE!!!! (from spark)... Next test is a bow drill... :)
I was so excited I had my dinner (smoked sausage over my fire) and a nice Fat Tire Ale... :)... Too cool!
oh, and I was wearing my Gulfman! :)
