When I was a kid, I can remember my dad trying to start a fire with a magnifying glass, not expecting it to work, and causing the carpet to start smoking.
When we were up on our mountain a few weeks ago, I discovered Pierce trying to start a fire with his glasses.
I think the sun was at a wrong angle. Paul came over to help. All the boys were interested in this fire starting business.
In the end, a lighter started a fire in our fire pit very nicely. Maybe we'll try the glasses trick again when the sun is overhead.
Readers, have you ever started a fire in an unusual way?
