Congratulations to TracksAndTrails.ca user Darkest1 or being selected as the winner of the $100 MEC Gift Certificate winner (of course I’ll give him a cash option). After trying to get all the entries in a hat, I gave up – too time conusuming in a busy schedule. So I used this random number picking service ( http://textmechanic.com/Random-Number-Generator.html ) and keyed in a range of numbers to represent the 490 comments plus 3 entries for each article posted by several outdoorsmen and women, hit the “generate a number” button to have number 439 get picked which was a comment made by Darkest1 on this post: https://tracksandtrails.ca/2009/03/volcano-mountain-lake-country-near-kelowna-bc/.

Keep commenting, new contest on NOW!

It pays to comment on TracksAndTrails.ca, Darkest1 had dozens of comments and of the 494 comments created, he had the best chance of winning. Next winner will be selected from comments made in August and the draw will be a $25 gift certificate from your favourite outdoor store (you can select it) or cash (via cheque or paypal).

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)
