TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Dashandsaph sent me some old tobacco tins last month. This is what I did with them.
I kept misplacing my BIC last winter and a I wanted a failsafe backup. The ferro rod is glued on with superglue and that tinder paper is just paper towlel soaked in melted candle wax

Looks good.

I'm also a fan of cotton wool soaked in Vaseline for emergencies.
