Default Char cloth

Anyone else play with fire. Made two batches of char cloth today. Denim works best for me.

Looks cool. But why?
Not being critical, just wondering if I need some.

We used to have our scouts make it and then use it to start their fires at camp outs. neat to know how and play with.

So are you rubbing two sticks together or using a flint? I always wanted to make fire with two sticks. Would love to say I had done it. I guess I need to read into it and see what I need to do.

We learned how to do it at a TYHP hunt. Now every time we light a fire we use the char cloth

Wait a few months...way to hot to be working that hard this time of year.
Ever wonder why Indians were so mean, build a fire with a couple of sticks then go try to get a meal from little walnuts, you'll be in a bad mood too!

We use the white cotton gun cleaning patches that are about 2-1/2 square.
I have used 2 sticks to start a fire but one was a match!
