Here's some pictures from a camping trip we went on with me making fire. Instead of using an easy method of starting a fire such as a lighter, I thought I'd practice with a magnesium stick. Didn't happen on the first try but these images show the steps I took.
batonning more wood
more scraping magnesium
shaving fluff from wood
pile of wood strips
sparks ignite magnesium
It's always smart to practice making fire whenever you can using your survival gear. By practicing, you'll have an easier time getting yourself warm when you really need it. Practice while camping or even in your backyard. Father-son time: Teach your kid a valuable lesson. The more you practice, the better you'll get. The best way to learn something is to teach it.
