Photostory Friday - Flint and Steel


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


Posted by Picasa

The other night we were preparing for girls camp by teaching the art of starting a fire. Even the girls who were hesitant and afraid of being burned, were smiling with triumph when they had succeeded in igniting a flame. There is something so basic in our desire to conquer the elements.

This is SO cool, and a skill that I think everyone should learn. I need to go get my some flink and cotton to put away in case of emergency! ")

Kids always seem to have an interest in fire. My son still feels that little rush of adrenline each time we let him set up our campfire. :)

Lovely capture!

I remember it well. Sitting in a cold, damp wood on Guide Camp trying to get a fire started. The elation when it worked (thanks to a little tin of fire lighters I'd snuck in!)
