    Words fail me. I'll get back to you on this by February, 2019.

    Good luck on that fire.
    If all else fails, remember the ferro.

    I just chop or cut them straight. Youll go batty trying to find a straight one. If you were only closer id help you. Come to the bushcraft class in October. Itll be taught there by james gibson a true master.

    Would buying some cedar planks at Lowes be considered cheating?

    This pic might be called "Cutting, or the lack thereof." I picked up this box of dry deadfall in my suburbia yard with no need to cut anything, shown with my Emberlit for size comparison. More than enough to cook a meal and a pot of tea or coffee. People who don't know us, or understand what we are assume we cut an entire old growth forest to cook a Ramen. :)

    Learned a fun fact over the weekend before last. Doritos are not only tasty snacks, but if you have a lighter they burn quite well:D
