Everytime I go out deep into the wildnerness I pack several methods for making fire. Using matches or a lighter are the easiest and I carry them both in several pockets of my pack and in my pants.
But even two methods may not be enough. In a survival situation you never know what circumstances you will be in – freezing cold, mounds of snow, lack of fuel sources, or whatever else might there.
Just in case, you should know how to make a fire and what you can use to do it. Being familiar and planning ahead may be the difference when you make fire if your matches or lighters don’t work out.
Fire making for survival…
