DRY PLACE TO START A FIRE – Most of the time you’ll have a hard time finding a perfectly dry place to start you fire, especially using a spark system. Try carrying a piece of aluminum foil in your pack to make a dry fire-lighting platform for your needs.

EMPTY LIGHTER FIRE STARTER – It happens, you go into the backcountry with the best of intentions carrying your liquid fuel lighter. But when you try to start a fire you find out that it’s empty. All is not lost. You can make a fire with just a little ingenuity. First, take out the cotton batting and spread it out. Next use the flint from the lighter to make a spark and ignite the cotton. End result, you get a fire from an empty lighter.
