Iowa woodsman's post got me thinking about practicing fire prep not like - I've never used a Fresnel lens before I've got one here I've started a fire with a magnifying glass when I was like a lot younger so I want to use that today on some punk what I found I'm gonna blow into flames with a.
Tinder bottle made from sassafras leaves and a little bit of grape vine bark just a tiny bit to start it off and then after that I'm going to do flint and steel bow drill and fire steel and then we get flames out of all of them not just going to stop at the coals so can try and get it on the camera too but getting the lens so there's just a.
Tiny beam of light I seem to remember that being the trick joh having a hard time do that right now here we go see that okay okay that didn't work too bad the sassafras leaves are still going one actually and they're sizzling like.
There's some kind of oil in them or something which I don't doubt because uh surprise pops like crazy when you burn it okay next up is Flint this deal my charcloth steal my Flint everybody's seen this before I know okay this tinder bundle is made out of.
Just dry grasses all right the button still gave me a little trouble that time I actually had it caught and didn't realize and put the whole charcloth thing down I went to pick it up again to try again and it was lit you.
Okay so last one obviously doing the bow drill and I've got some fried meat some Phragmites read but I'm going to use as a tinder bundle my battery's low and I hope that I can pop a coal off before it dies we shall see everybody see me explain how I do this and everything so go right that's good still going yeah all right this.
Phragmites is a really good tinder bundle get off there we go all right well I guess that concludes my fire practice for today I'll probably take a couple snapshots in my gear and stuff and put it on after the video thanks for watching guys if you have any.
