After watching Yukon Men last night I realized a lot of people are going to be in trouble. For those that don’t watch the show let me explain what happened. There is a new kid on the show that one of the guys hired to help with his dogs. He is basically a greenhorn that just moved to Alaska from North Carolina. Well last night in the show he wanted to test out his survival skills so he went out into the woods to try and make fire. After watching this poor kid fail horribly at attempting to make a fire with a lighter, I realized how many people would be in trouble if they had to make a fire if there life depended on it. Yes even with matches or a lighter. So I can’t really stress enough how important it is to practice this even if its just with matches or a lighter. Here is a good video below that gives the basics of starting a fire.
