Cedar Fire in Wet Weather

It's been very wet over here lately and most recently very snowy, so when conditions are like this it can be difficult to get a fire going from natural materials found on the day
 

rather than spend ages making feather sticks from rather knotty spruce branches we found a fallen cedar and took off a strip of bark and scraped up the inner fibers
 
 
once we had a small tinder bundle we were ready for ignition..
 
 
..which was char cloth
 
 
already to go
 
 
nearly there
 
 
and we have flame, easy fire on a rather hard day.
