      insight into this one? I'ld like to hear it before the spring...

      What are you currently using as a fire starter now and how are coffee
      grounds and beeswax anymore eco-friendly?

      I think that wood is the most eco-friendly thing you can burn on the
      trail and it's readily available. Burning wood has a net neutral
      effect on C02, it helps clean up the forest floor and helps eliminate
      fire hazards. Why not use it.
