Hi all,
Just wondering what some might suggest for tinder as I live in the Colorado Rockies.
I use Monks Cloth for char cloth (which works great) and have tried sisal and jute rope in a birdsnest, linen tow (which burns real fast) cedar shavings, dried grass, pine needles but none have been very good for me.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

dry, shredded juniper bark will probably become a favorite.
