Today, I tried wet fire for the first (and possibly last) time. Don't get me wrong, as an emergency fire starter, it would be fine. I prefer cotton balls with Vaseline and fatwood. After teaching my tai chi class, I took a little break to go outside and play. my intent was to test the wet fire cubes and try and boil water for something to drink. I tried to invite Bear, but think he was busy. Good thing too. I thought I had some miso soup that I was going to share. Turns out I only had one satchel of got chocolate and one of coffee. Anyway, got to my spot. Here's the view on this overcast day. My grab and go car kit. I don't usually have a casualty blanket and shemagh attached to the straps. Wanted to see how it felt attached that way. Was gonna bring them regardless since I figured the ground would be wet. Not a comfortable carry. My EDC (not including my phone, wallet and kets) Items in one side pocket. Items in the other side pocket E&E match case contents Stuff in main compartment (I forgot to stick the canteen in the picture) Wet fire burns for 3-4 minutes it seems and two, one after the other just got tiny bubbles and no boil. But it was just hot enough for a hot drink. Big flame but average performance. Working... About 8 oz of water. Made hot chocolate, but didn't take a picture because I didn't want it to get cold before I drank it. The residue Beat up and trusty old hat Cleaned up, packed up, ready to go. Left no trace.
