This 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.
