re fire lighting with egg boxes tip the excess fat from the cooking pan into the box and let it set. when lighting the fire you can use a section at a time as an effective long burning fire lighter.
when pitching up a parachute shelter save on poles and pegs. hoist up the middle and establish a perimeter rope at head height. then tie out the edges to the perimeter rope using running cordage or bungees.
I admit that a limitation is finding a tall tree for the middle hoist with a ring of trees around it but such places can be found.
nice to know that there are lots of us lighting fires in the woods and having a go at making things
