Survival Skills: Fire making

bonfireThis winter I tried to make a fire with sticks and tinder, that I found outside in the great outdoors. It was horrible.

I think I now understand that we all need more practice making fires, in a controlled situation.

Hopefully you’ll never have to make a fire in a true survival situation, but if you ever have to at least you’ll know what’s in store. I had a Bic lighter when I attempted mine and let me tell you, it’s harder than you think.

If I can’t do it with a lighter, I sure can’t do it with just some sticks, so I bought a firesteel, for when I run out of Bic lighters!
