Bushcraft / Survival Fire w / Water Bottle

in this vid you can see how i make fire with a clear plastic (PET) water bottle - the kind that you find everywhere (unfortunately... :( ).

i used charred cloth, horseshoe fungus and almost-dry cow dung to get an ember (you can use other natural tinder, too) and some jute twine to get a flame (you can use dry grass, tree bark fibers, dry leafs etc.).

i want to thank to my friend radu (aka m00thman) who gave me the ideea for this vid.

    Does the bottle need the water to be able to focus the sun? Also I noticed the bottle you used was a smooth bottle, bottles that have uneven surfaces would be probably be more difficult to find a good focal point?
    Nice vid!
