Day 146 – Thankful for Making Fire – Old School Style

20 Feb

Today I’m thankful for making fire – old school style…

Ahh…  The smell of flint and steel striking together to make sparks to start fire.  Pretty sure it’s one of the rites of passage into manhood.  One of the only better ones is making a fire via friction.

 Last night at Winter Camp for Cub Scouts I had the awesome privilege of helping a few kids start their first fires using a flint and pocket knife.  It was a pretty epic experience!  Some of the kids got it figure out pretty quickly, some persevered and kept going until their first successful ignition.  The smiles on their faces were priceless, the high fives made me smile.

I am extremely fortunate to have been able to have played a part in their scouting experience!
