Fire and Foraging Microadventure

Inspired by my wild baking microadventure, I decided it was high time I learned to light a fire properly, without matches or a lighter. This led me back to Sussex to my old friend Nick, to chat with him about foraging, making a career out of what you love, and summoning up the guts to bail out of conventional city living if you really hate it.

If you enjoyed that, you might enjoy listening to his talk about living in a treehouse, watching Nick and me try to live off the land, see pics from when I went to stay in his treehouse, or reading an interview I did with Nick for Grand Adventures.

    I’m interested in how you the fire was started! What was the powder that was placed in the cotton and rubbed between the boards?
