“Favorite Fire Starters” by Nutnfancy

I prefer non-hokey, reliable outdoor gear. When TCE is limited, that’s expecially true. When it’s time to make a fire I don’t consider it a recreational exercise, I just want to get a blaze fast with the least amount of work. Allie the Mountain Dog and I up are up at the high altitudes to show you our favorite and maybe not so favorite ways of making a fire. Shown are some flint and steel options, lighters, one handed striker, and a fire piston. Even a previous well-proven method fails on camera here, non setup. I took was surprised. It was a glorious fall day, just before snowfall, as I talk my philosophy on this stuff and maybe give you some tips on how to waste valuable time and energy next time you need a survival fire.
