Lighten Your Load / Classic BIC vs. Mini BIC

My packing mantra is: Every ounce counts.

When you're packing for a trip, it's important to scrutinize every single item you're thinking about taking. Know exactly why you're taking it and make it worth the weight (i.e. is it multi-purpose?). We'll cover this topic more as the #100daysofwilderness project progresses.

For now, here's a simple way to reduce some weight and space with one kind of fire source: lighters.

Bonus Tip: Choose bright colors so it's easy to find when you put it down. Forget camo. You want your lighter to be found.
