Making tinder shavings

During the rainy season everything is damp and it's damp much of the time. Don't risk not being able to get a fire started by not having dry tinder. One thing you can do is us a pencil sharpener to make fine shavings. Do this from the convenience of being at home. Find a dry stick and shave away. You can carry your new tinder in an old pill bottle. 

Keep the desiccant pack that was used to keep moisture out of whatever pills/medicine was originally in the bottle in the bottle. I actually save them up and add more than one usually... just to play it extra safe.
