Re: old time survival skills
If you always have a knife, then with that and a bootlace you can always make a fire-bow.
I carry extra boot laces with me as part of my survival gear.
And I always always have a knife with me. That is the first thing my father taught me.
Magnesium fires starters are good to have along too.
As well as a couple of butane lighters. They are more reliable than matches.
Warmth being our second most important need, next to only the air that we breathe, being able to start a fire in any conditions is a critical survival factor in any game plan.
