Chapstick on cotton balls for a torch effect is like vaseline, but more neater to carry around.

NTS: get tweezers to put on sesame seed eyes. Otherwise will have Japanese Santas…

That’s right Justin Credible.
Markshere2, great program. I learned about the cotton and Vaseline in a youtube “related video” a while back after checking out those alcohol stoves people have made from aluminum pop or beer cans.

Flints, steel striker and tinder(…which has infinite sources…) and you can make fire! […Don`t hurt none to have a pocket full of Bics——–neither….. One of the 3 survival schools I attended taught us that just collecting *belly button lint* makes plenty good tinder (…as long as I don`t have to collect it….)
A tip that I used to make fire starting easier for my major home survival package that is cheap and creates a TON of firestarting *tinder*, if you will is:
Bought a single firelog at the grocery store. Using a saw, hatchet and knife I cut the firelog into a HUGE pile of *1 INCH CUBES*. Packaged them up in a dozen or so waterproof plastic bags which I covered their seals w duct tape to keep air and moisture out.
A single match, a single flick of the BIC, or lighted tinder fm flint & striker will light one of these cubes and they will burn long enough and hot enough to cause even damp kindling to dry out and produce flames for the larger firewood you have collected!!!!!!!
For about $1.50 you can net about a 6 month supply of easy-peesy cubes for your survival cooking or stay warm fires in a primitive situation……..
Also, an easy way to start a fire in your home wood stove…….

I’d get about 3 made and be eating strawberries in a bowl with cool whip. Maybe some little black eyes sprinkled on top.
