    When I'm in the woods, I normally carry several ways to start a fire. A lighter in my bag, one on my person, and a tinder kit with petroleum jelly covered cotton balls in both as well.
    I to have never hiked the AT, but in a pinch the hardened Pine sap from off the side of pine trees works well to as a fire starter for wet tinder. You can use the fresh sticky stuff to, but collect it by useing a stick. Otherwise your hands will stick to stuff from the pine sap residue. Best method to get it off is to keep rubbing dirt on your hands till you get it off. You could use your fuel as well, but the dirt works just as well.
    I swear I have never killed an axe, but might be a cereal killer just cant help it with a name like life it has to go down. -Wildcrafter-


    ON ON!

    I don't think he did. I offered to help him out with his videos and we pmed each other about it for a couple weeks. But, I haven't heard anything from him in at least 2 weeks.

    Last time we spoke, he was going to be starting later than expected. He said he was heading down to springer April 1st, intending to hit the trail sometime after that.
