A Good Old Fashioned BIC
by Todd Owen
Wow, it amazes me how many Fire Starting items I see in all the stores and all the catalogs for Survival stuff. I am all for being VERY prepared but, all in all, I still think having a few BIC lighters stuffed in my pack does well.
I have a couple of the small guys stuffed in an old pill bottle that is water tight too. So YES there is nothing wrong with being prepared, I just feel sometimes company's feed our desire with way gimmicked items.
I will take my chances and drop the 2 bucks on a 4 pack.
(NOTE IF CLIMBING HIGH ALTITUDES CERTAIN TYPES OF LIGHTERS WILL NOT WORK. I HAVE USED SOME ON SOME OF THE 14ER'S IN COLORADO THAT JUST DID NOT CUT IT ).
