    So as not to hijack your thread LT, I started another on the intended experiment HERE in selfmade gear.

    That's some true American ingenuity right there. Some people would have just packed up and gone home if their stove died. I collect up every bit of sap that I can find. I keep a film canister full of it in my tinder kit. Great stuff.

    I'm a tinder fiend and so what if I only read your post for new pyro ideas? I stop at every one of the random pines I find here for pitch or fatwood, saw that oakworks too now I have to try that out! Ceder bark fluff and wild grape vine scraps. Well played sir, true Michigander even if you are a UP'er Good stuff lonetracker, very good stuff.

    pitch can be any were on the tree.were ever there is a split,or a cut in the bark.or an old loose branch(this is were i find most of mine)the fresh pitch is easy to see,being a milky white color the older stuff starts to look just like bark.sometimes there is drip marks down the tree.
    i believe the type of pine is very important.i find all my pitch on white spruce and have seen it on black spruce in small amounts.i also find it on larger trees normally.

    Almost each time I purify my pine pitch in the woods, I use the flames to boil my water on it... Did that for 8 years or so... works well and is well into the survival way of spending the lowest amount of energy. Only problem, I've been told that the black smoke and fumes aren't that healthy... but hey... on a cold morning in the woods in the Alps... I would be out of my mind if I did not get that hot brew

    Here is a tree I found a couple days ago. Collected some to use to do my five natural tinders.
