The drier lint is a good thing to start fires with. You can put it in a medicine Boyle and dip it in wax to seal it. Also take a bundle of light anywhere matches. Dip the head and little farther in wax then you have "waterproof matches". That will go a long way.

Try lighting that "dipped" match. It won't get wet, either...

Yea, did that and they don't! I still like the dryer lint as a starter over char cloth. A little bit of magnesium shavings and a spark are all you need.

Default Pine Lighter

I'm surprised no one has mentioned pine lighter? At least that's what it was called it when I was little. It's the center of a rotten pine tree and can be found anywhere there are pines which is just about everywhere. Simply walk up to an old pine stump or rotten pine log and kick the loose material away until you get to a rock solid center or the heart (heart pine). That center will be full of pine sap. Cut a small piece off and it will smell just like turpentine, which is essentially what it is. Be careful, some pieces have more sap than others and can flair up pretty quick. It's nothing like gasoline, but it's definitely flammable. Not all stumps will have it but many will. We would always pickup a piece while cutting firewood and use that for kindling. And since it's pretty much everywhere (at least where there are pines) you don't need to worry about carrying anything extra with you, other than a lighter.

Default fire building

Old film cannisters or other small containers stuffed with cotton balls saturated with petroleum jelly,(Vaseline), butane lighter or magnesium fire starter. Stay away from diesel fuel, it has a habit of slowly leaking from the container, especially in hot weather, ruins whatever is in the pack.
