Jumping in with a report from the dry side of the state. Twisted up some sagebrush bark. Started it on fire with some charred punk and western red cedar. Snuffed it out. Lit real easy with a couple of hits. Overall I give it pretty high marks, chars real easy, takes a spark real fast and tons of it where I live. Surprised I missed this for so long, I have been fascinated with the other half of the equation for the last year or so, exploring all the different ways to make the spark, Glad I read all of this from page one, good stuff!
