It is a beautiful day. No way I wanted to spend it at work. I took a long mid day break for a little wandering and flint and steel practice. I headed to my usaual area but made a new camp in a different spot. It was warm with a slight breeze and I wanted to take advantage of it. I chose a spot at the edge of a ridge. Camp for the day. A bench was priority one. I did not want a fire but wanted to practice flint and steel fire starting. I picked this striker from @Red Yeti a few weeks ago. It is pretty sparky and took one strike to get this lit. I just about burnt my fingers with the coal extender (jute twine). I dropped it on the ground and had to move quick because I was to far from fire when lighting. Cont.
