    So some background for me, I'm a bit of a tea connoisseur (snob, as my mother says it), and I generally have about 20 different types/blends of tea on hand at any given moment. I have a stash at work, and a separate stash at home, and I usually make at least 1-3 cups for myself and my wife...

    Step 1- fill a container 75% with wood pellets Step 2- add 151 rum to pellets, fill 50% Step 3- put on lid and shake well You wil see pellets absorbing alcohol.

    My wife, son, and I went backpacking last week to Pukaskwa National Park in Ontario. My wife likes to have campfires every night and I am happy to oblige. Our third night was VERY wet as it poured rain all day, so everything we usually start fires with (birch bark, dry grasses, moss, etc.) was...

    I've been thinking alot about what an ideal fire kit should comprise. With there being multiple approaches to sparking a flame, I think there are basically 3 schools of thought here... 1. Use a Bic lighter 2. Primitive fire building 3. Fire building kits (firsteel, mag bar, etc...) I've come...

    It was about 1:00am. I couldn't sleep, so I got up and went to my back deck. I grabbed a stick I found out back and spent about an hour and a half whittling. I took my time to learn the intricacies of my knife. I got out a lot of stress and created a pile of tinder about 1 square foot in area...

    I've taken to compiling what I believe would make good tinder now every chance I get. Working on a construction site, I have tons of sawdust that I can take. I also just got a batch of bamboo brush that seems to catch a flame quick, but burn slowly so I'm looking into seeing if I can store...

    Since i live in a wet area, i always seem to have trouble finding dry tinder without doing a lot of extra work, so i usually carry some with me instead. One of the ideas i came up with last year, was using a pencil sharpener to turn sticks into wood shavings. This was working very well, and i...
  12. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I know that there are many different types of tinder out there. Here a couple that I really like. 1. Dip "empty" egg cartons into wax and let dry. A variation to this (But not necessary) is to fill cups in egg carton with wood shavings first, then cover with wax. Great for campfire starters...
