Wilderness Survival Tips: 2 Tricks To Start A Fire

– Ever try to start a fire in a wind storm? Can be tricky. But a few of our readers submitted a couple really cool wilderness survival tips that will help you start a fire even under extreme conditions…

Wilderness Survival Tip #1: When using a magnesium fire starter block, cut off a bit of hacksaw blade and attach it to your tinder kit. The saw works better at creating ultra-fine shavings that will catch fire faster and also emits more sparks than a survival knife.

Wilderness Survival Tip #2: To catch the magnesium shavings and protect them from the wind, cut a 3 inch piece of duct tape. It will trap the shavings and keep them from blowing away.
