if you ever needed easy, super flammable tinder, look no further! i used a bunch of these to get some damp wood going the other night and thought i'd share

WARNING: THIS SHIT IS SUPER FLAMMABLE- DON'T FUCK AROUND WITH IT

to make them you'll need water, sugar, potassium nitrate stump remover, and cottonballs/rags/whatever will soak up water. heat your water up in and old can and slowly add the stump remover (crush if pellets are large, it helps to dissolve) and sugar in equal parts. don't add the ingredients seperately at different times, add small handfuls at the same time and stop adding when it no longer dissolves. dip your cottonballs/cloth and set out to air dry. as long as they don't get wet the smallest spark will make them burn VIGOROUSLY, and they should last indefinitely in a ziploc
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

For me, that’s too much work. I would just throw a handful of pieces of fat-wood in my pack, shave it as needed.

at first i thought it was some clever/metaphorical, innuendo-riddled advice for a dating profile...

Potassium Nitrate and Sugar is commonly used as a DIY hobby rocket fuel or sometimes in DIY smoke grenades. Its fun shit to mess around with.

I like to collect paper birch bark. It's natural, not messy like pine sap, and it doesn't get ruined or loose its efficacy if it gets wet.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$80.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $80.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $80.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
