What's in Your Pack? Fire Starters
Fire, along with water, constitutes the basic element of survival on any outdoor adventure. Surprisingly most of us couldn't start one to save our lives (thus the guilty laughs at two finalists in TV's "Survivor" who couldn't start a fire even with matches and a million bucks riding on it).
Planning to set off an outdoor adventure? Make sure you have some basic fire starting skills - David Arama's video can help with good advice. But if you're looking for foolproof tools, check out these great finds:WetFire Tinder - Created for the military, these amazing fire starters get a blaze going even during a downpour. Individually packed for convenience, just one tinder burns hot and smokeless without needing an armful of kindling. Forget leaky gels and bottles of liquid flammables - you'll never run the risk of anything spilling in you bag. Check out the ultimate survival website Fire Sticks - From a reliable name in outdoor adventure accessories, Coghlans, Fire Sticks are made from compressed sawdust mixed with accelerant. These sticks catch fire quickly, burn fast, and hot. I love that they come in a sealable bag and take next to no room in my pack. Best part of all, they're cheap and easy to find in any camping supply store. For more information visit Coghlans .
