Vancouver Outdoor and Adventure Travel Show!

Is anyone going to the Vancouver Outdoor and Adventure Show this weekend?
I’m launching QUICK-FIRE, a compact, reliable fire striker at the show and have 10 free tickets to give away!


My friends Norm Sawyer and Jami Rogers co-authored 'Thoughts From a Friend'. A book with a lot of wisdom and great poetry. When I saw the poem Fire, it made me think of all the campfires that I have enjoyed with friends, I had to share it . The book can be purchased...

How To Light A Fire Without Matches

Step 1.

Fluff the fatwood by scraping the stick with the edge of your striker. If a hunting knife is available, use the BACK of the blade to fluff.

Step 2.

Practice getting a spark to land on the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your ferro rod and the edge of your striker.

Step 3.

Direct the sparks to the top of the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your QUICK-FIRE and the edge of the Striker. (Or use the back of a blade)
