At this point it more for fun than preparedness, but we made some flint and steel strikers out of a old file a couple of weekends ago. Now every rock picked up by bacpacgirl on our walks gets tested to see if we can make sparks with it.

Next step: trying to catch a spark and make an ember to blow into flame.

Next project: making a knife out of an old file.
