Camping at a park in Western Michigan, I told my granddaughter that I would show her how to start a fire with no matches or lighter. We put some paper in the pit, shaved a little Coleman firestarter stick on them, put some kindling on it and put my Firesteel to work to start a fire. There were three neighbor families that came to watch. They were amazed that the Firesteel shot out that many sparks and that we actually started a fire. City-dwellin' doubters! I explained what happened and probably recruited three boys for local scout troops! It was nice to see folks get excited about woods ways!
