Sounds likke a good time
Yup, that's a great plan you guys got. Having your "comfort" gear handy is like trying out that new quilt/tarp/bug net in the backyard, knowing you have the house a few steps away. If I may suggest and assuming you're talking about using the fire steel (scraping a rod against the back of a knife or steel), instead of scraping downthe rod, practice pulling the rod up the knife/steel. This will keep you from knocking over your tinder but you still get a shower of sparks that will ignite. I learned to do it that way because of knocking over the tinder and still do it that way even though I now use cotton balls mushed up with Vaseline. Hope that made sense.
