You guys want me to start posting information about such things as how to find fatwood, make a bow drill fire, how to find the right wood for bow drill, char cloth/tin, flint and steel, etc?
I just realized (after I went to a get together this last weekend) that many people don’t know how to find tinder in wet environments, how to find fatwood, or what type of wood to use for bow drill kits, etc.
If you guys want me to start doing some of these things I can. I guess I just took a lot of this for granted. This last weekend really woke me up that many don’t really know stuff like this.

Agreed – thank you in advance. At least some of us were culturally deprived, growing up.

I’ve started a few fires, but I’d appreciate instruction by someone more experienced. Thank you.

I will take a few pictures this weekend and start it off. Probably going to start off with the basics first such as char material and then go to fatwood. We will see where it all leads, but it should be interesting and possibly educational depending on your background. If nothing else, I doubt too many on here know how to find the right wood for a bow drill fire. Maybe I am wrong, but we will see. Have a new set that I put together this last weekend that works pretty well.

i am a bushcrafter too ,
i started many fires the only thing i never did are rubbing sticks together,
in my honest opinion if you have to go back all the way to rubbing sticks
your screwing up big time …..

Using a bow drill to start a fire is something I’ve never tried. I’ve burnt enough wood with dull power tools to know how much energy it takes though. For me, I hope stays in the to-do list.
