|I learned this while serving in the Navy.
Dried pine pitch (sap) found in dead trees burns. Find a down pine tree and locate parts of the tree that has this material on or in it. With a knife or ax slice off a piece and keep it. Make tinder when you need to start a fire.
I cut pieces of this material when I am splitting firewood. Whe have lots of pine trees around here!
