    This could be an interesting challenge.  I like the people who have signed on.  Might have to think about joining a little more first.  It seems like this might turn into a Zippo exhibition.  Of course I don't smoke and don't own or carry a Zippo.  It could get boring for everyone to see my daily photo of a book of paper matches.  Best wishes.  G
 :P  :think:

People are probably going to get tired of me lighting my Solo stove.  I plan to use everything I have to make it a practical skill challenge.  You could always whip up a bow drill  :tu:  As for book matches, I think they're a great idea.  My grandfather always had book or box matches that stores and banks gave away.

I've got fire making "things" but thought this was a good opportunity to order a couple of things from Exotac 🔥🔥🔥
Can't wait to get them in and get familiar before the challenge

My wife gifted me the Nanostriker XL.  I like it.

I thought it would be a bit too small for my hands but I got used to it pretty quick.  Can't wait to see what you picked up.  :2tu:

Not a challenge for me as I already EDC a ferro rod and 3 matches in a capsule every day.  Only rule I don't already meet is taking a daily picture.  Y'all have fun!

That’s a good set of sparkys you got there.

Is  that a light my fire brand of the morakniv ferro rod companion (I think that’s the right name for theknife)?  Both are  just mora and light my fire though?

I don’t have it but have thought about it a few times.  Some of the reviews I’ve heard about it weren’t that good so I have passed.
