Show Notes

A Fire Starting Kit is one of the most personal items you can create for your own Survival Kit. I’m going to talk about my Fire Starting Kit or Survival Fire Kit and what I keep inside. What I use in my kit is based on my environment or environments I recreate in. I think it’s important to keep in mind as you create the kit that best works for you, that you make it very user friendly. After all teaching someone how to make a bow drill in a survival situation while your hands are broken could be challenging. Have the advantage of fire on demand. Keep a kit with you!

Show Notes:

In this week’s show I talk about why I think wilderness navigation is a lost art. I also talk about some of the search and rescue training I was involved in and how that plays a role in the lost art of wilderness navigation. My hope is that you do not let the skills fall to the ways of technology. Keep the fire burning and learn while you still can.
