    This is getting a few hour extension because I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off (as usual) and don't have time, will put up the poll this evening my time.

    I almost entered with household chemical fire but I didn't want to be liable for anyone doing this and dying from the fumes (that and I didn't want to maybe die from the fumes) and I had to weigh out all the liability issues. Other than that I couldn't think of a creative way to make fire. Well, not safely that is. Great videos everyone!

    video started out around 7.5 minutes, so I sped it up in spots to get it under 3 minutes.

    Including set-up time, that was enough time in the rain for me, if I didn't let it get big enough say so, it won't hurt my feelings.
    Hahaha. I'd say you fulfilled the requirement to be creative! Good stuff, man.

    I see I am too late to be an entry, but can I upload my video anyway for fun?

    I shot it Tue night, but it took some time to edit.

    It was a learning experience for me.

    What I thought I'd do is try to start a fire from something I may commonly have on hand. One of my hobbies is metal detecting, so I often have my detector (with 9V batteries in it) and headphones. In this case, I decided to try to light a fire with these objects.

    I failed to start an actual fire. Got a flash and a puff of smoke 2X (one of which I caught on cam), and then I think my battery died.

    It's good to know, you don't get many chances in this situation, so having a plan B is a good idea. I ended up using the firesteel to start it since I had done all the prep.

    Very cool guys and yeah the more vids the merrier no worries. Late though as you know, once I put up the poll I can't edit it even if I wanted to so watch out for the next contest for sure. Loved them both personally.

Starting a fire to win a prize isn't always easy but when all is said and done sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself and dig deeper.
    Sweet, sweet victory : )

    1. I never thought of taking apart my binoculars in a pinch!

    2. Kids don't need clothes, they need costumes. That was too cool.
