    Twig bundle, I used the Mors style of piling the branches together, then breaking it over my knee and binding. I used bailing twine to tie it up and lit with my flint and steel.

    Twig bundle was a mix of twigs from around my yard, tied with jute twine. Platform was some small logs off of my wood pile, and tinder was dried grass, pine needles, and some small pine twigs.

    Lit the grass and needles first, then added the pine twigs and some more needles. The bundle was very easy to light off of the tinder fire, and once I got one end burning I just set the bundle down on top of the burning tinder and it took care of itself from there.

    It was in the 90s today but still managed to get out and get this elective done. I used jute to make a tinder bundle and tie the twigs. Ferro for the ignition source.

    I totally flubbed this a few days ago, so yesterday I thought I'd give it another try. Bundled up some dead shoots from a lilac bush. Put some jute and fuzz stick in there.

    Lit without issue from my firesteel.

    Then it got going well.

    A little off from point of view, but these ended up well over knee high.
