    If it doesn't have a question mark, is it still a question...

    ^ is a pondering and not a question!

    Go get a disposable turkey pan, for like $.65, build them there on your porch or front yard.

    Burn bans be damned.

    Tha Moose speaks truth. So long as it is a contained fire you should be fine, and ye olde turkey pan counts.

    made a little progress today by carving most of a bow for a bow drill set today. Western Red Cedar branch from a tree I cut down last fall.

    I used to BBQ and build big fires in a webber on my roof in the east village all the time. I was careful and safe no problems plus like being on a mountaintop with the skyline views. Do you have roof access? In NYC it's rare to have I was lucky I guess. We climbed up the fire escape to our own private roof deck.

    No fire yet but I did make a bow out of walnut and several spindles but I'm not sure how that will go. Never have I built a lens fire or a friction fire so my plan is to try to do both of those first - if I succeed then lots of other fires with steel, match and bic.. :)

    And a couple of days ago I spent a bunch of time trying to get a lens fire going with a magnifying glass and some Jute Cord. Never even got any smoke. Would try again today (last day I think) but its cloudy and windy so I guess I am out.Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

    I've built friction fires before but never a lens fire. I'm building a fire kit right now outta cedar and not sure if its gonna work out or not. I've only used sage before and it doesn't grow around where I live now.

    I am super duper excited, I did on this day make my first bow drill fire. I got a coal 3 times and lost the first 2. 3rd time is the charm.

    Congrats on your first bow drill fire! That's good stuff and not easy to do! Love the new quote man, good times!

    Nice one. Depending on your setup it can be a lot of work. Especially breaking in a new kit. What type of wood?

    I'm defiantly in on this one but still have yet to try out my new bow drill set. Doing that tomorrow. Hoping it's not going to rain...here in the rainforest! :eek:

    I had a great time taking part in this contest today. I don't understand why more people are not up for this.
