April 27, 2007, Newsletter Issue #62: Hiking - Starting A Fire

Tip of the Week

When you´re hiking and trekking, one thing you must be able to do in an emergency is get a fire going. 

Try some of these hiking standard homemade fire starters on your next hike:

* Cardboard egg carton cups filled with wood shavings and dryer lint, then melted parafin. 
* A used film can with cotton balls saturated with vasaline. 
* Firestarters used to get a barbecue going 
* A butane cigar lighter. (These are like miniature blowtorches that can even get a damp material burning.)
