Today was a really fun day with all the kids. We had a guest/friend/dad come in and
demonstrate a slew of survival skills. Mainly he showed us how to make fire with the
use of friction: Bow-drill, hand-drill, and the last one was new to me, bamboo.
The kids were very involved, and it brought me back to when I was a kid and my parents hosted
a "Tom Brown" camp at our home in the mountains.
We learned the same technics . . .
Everyone got a chance to try the tools and put their best power toward making fire . . .
It certainly is tricky business . . .
I believe it would take a fair while for any of these kids to master it . . .
