This is the quickest and best way to start a fire in adverse conditions. Take a small square of foil, a cotton ball coated with Vaseline and fold the cotton/vaseline soaked ball into the foil in a small square. When you need to start a fire, cut an X in the packet, twist out a small amount of cotton into a wick and strike a spark to it with your StrikeForce striker. Lights first time, every time. It will last up to 10-15 minutes depending on how much vaseline you put in the cotton.
The Long Match is a method of carrying that fire with you as you leave camp and head out to the next destination. This becomes of great use when the only method of fire starting available is through primitive methods.
PC Magazine's "Equipment for High-Tech Camping" features the @Wood Burns CampStove: "BioLite is a tiny cook stove that holds up to 1.6 ounces of wood (twigs you gather), enough to boil 1 liter of water in about four and a half minutes. More important to your connectivity, it uses the heat produced to turn a fan that powers a generator that supplies 20 minutes of charging time to an iPhone 4S."

I can vouch for this trick. Don't like using OFF on the littles because of the DEET? Use Listerine! It repels the mosquitoes!! It has to be the original flavor, not the frou-frou flavors. Fill a mister, spray yourselves, off you go! :D You're welcome!
