I think spring has finally decided to stick around for a while and that means it's time for me to start working on my summer goals.
After reading Paul Kirtley's excellent article on how to succeed with the bow and drill, I was determined that I would work with it until I got success. Well, after using the tips from the article I finally achieved my goal today. I finally produced a decent ember from materials I gathered around the woods. (Sorry I didn't get any quality pictures. My photographer is out of town this weekend so I was on my own.) If you haven't read Paul's article yet I would highly recommend you do so. I found it very helpful.
