Weather conditions permitting. I bet it would work. When it gets a little sunnier here in Florida. I am going too try it.
I bet it might work under the rite conditions. ?
If not. What is the best fire starter you guys have used?
I've done it. It's pretty easy. I've even seen where folks use ice carved into a lens to start fire! Or use the bottom of a coke can, polished with a Hershey bar, as a mirror to start a fire. I've done the fire bow, and flint and steel is pretty easy if you practice. Primitive fire-building is something we try to teach scouts. They don't always listen...
