Hello, While I was at "****'s Sporting Goods." Looking at the camping isle, making searching for some cheap, useful things, I stumbeled apon a "Light My Fire", "Firesteel." I've heard good things on here about them, and saw them mentioned in "Backpacker" Magazine. My dad has never used one of theese, and sticks to modernized, conventional methods. I can properly get LARGE sparks off of the firesteel. I however, couldn't get a propper firegoing, and would like to be proficient in the Firesteel by my family camping season, as I plan to do some Solo Survival camping, in the deep woods (Capiable of getting back to parents easily, I know the terrain, Cellphone also in my pocket.) I was wondering if any of you fella's out there with this device, could explain to me how to catch the sparks from the firesteel onto tinder properly, I have tried this, even with cloth soaked in gasoline.
