Even though it’s now the dry season here in southern Thailand, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared just in case there is an odd shower or a heavy dew. Don’t risk being unable to get a fire started by not having dry campfire 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. Another thing that I tend to carry is some bamboo toothpicks… cheap, light, and easy to carry.
