Friction Fire Practice

Whether you're an old pro at starting fires by friction or have never even seen the methods demonstrated, come by and practice in a supportive environment where everyone is helping everyone else improve their fire skills.

Perhaps you have a new method to teach us? Bring your fire kit!
If you've been to one of our Wilderness Survival Weekends, bring your fire kit!
If you've never even heard of a fire kit, come on down and you can borrow one of ours for $5. We'll even help you hunt for materials to make your own, or you can purchase a kit to keep from the school for $10.

This is a meetup that we have every month, because you can never get too much practice in making friction fires.

Why the early start time? Because, more than likely, it will be a typical sweltering day in Austin, so let's practice those fires while it's still cool outside!
