I tried making fire by sticks. I need more practice... But alternatively picked up a Zippo, some 90% isopropyl alcohol and rainproof tinder, and 2 fresnel magnifying sheets.

Reminded me of my burning ants as I started fire in seconds with the magnifier. I had way too much fun for an adult with it. I have a blind spot on my vision now. I'll get a darkened shade with the magnifier so I don't cause real damage, next.

I like this thread. It keeps me focused on task to triage my plans and skill building.
