Building a Survival Fire with Les Stroud

Survival Fire

Most people who spend time in the outdoors know how to build a fire. But do you know how to build a fire in a survival situation? In this video Les Stroud shows how to build a fire in conditions that are not exactly ideal. He also gives some other great tips on outdoor survival. I like how he builds his fire up against a big rock to help reflect the heat, and depending on the direction of the wind, it could act as a wind blocker as well.

And as far as the amount of firewood you will need to keep warm outside overnight: "It's always, always, 5 times more that you think it's going to be", says Les.

  1. When you are prepared for a fire, just place one in the centre of your fire ring along with kindling and lightweight and firewood the paper. The sparks you make must be able to burn your collections of kindling, when you utilise the emergency fire starter. Starting a fire has never been easier, with Flint Fire Starter kit. The fire starter is made out of magnesium, which is a flammable and cushioned element. Recently I bought this Waterproof Firestarter, The Ferro rod and which are both included in 1 fire starting kit and that fits conveniently in your pocket. I found this discount code. Use this code "PD10"and save 10%.
