ive tried hand sanitizer, several brands. its not verry effective in "inclement" weather, like wind, or damp. the alcohol just cant get hot enough to get moist stuff burning.
i take dryer lint and stuff it real tight in a toilet paper tube, put it in a dish and pour "melted" petroleum jelly into it till its saturated. i then freeze it and cut it into 6 sections.
3 sections fit perfectly into a "snack" sized zip lock bag, and are large enough to get a good fire going in the nastiest weather.
There is only one tactical principle which is not subject to change. It is to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wound, death, and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time."
