first thing i've learned is to stay out of the sun, especially in the hottest part of the day..duh...you want to slow down the loss of water from your body..so find shade during the hotter part of day and look for water in early morning or after sun begins to set...where to look next

Excellent advice no doubt, but during the hottest part of the day you'll find me down the road in some dive bar enjoying their air conditioning and having a cold one!

Even if you are used to using only natural tinder in the summer, they will be in a different condition in winter and your favorites may not be available at all.

Focus on sourcing dry kindling and dead, dry standing wood (harder in winter when there are no leaves). Going out in winter and applying what works in summer, forces you to refocus and refine your skills so they work without fail year-round. Winter is the time to push your fire lighting skills on to the next level.

So it appears when someone says Baby Light My Fire, it takes a bit more work in winter....
hahaha H...i wanted to mention the waxed pinecones..haven't made these (yet) but i think they will be awesome!

Default Converting Your Neck Knife and Wallet into a Fire Starter Kit..

One of the bushcraft knife skills to learn is how to convert your neck knife or wallet into a fire starter kit. All you need is a 550 paracord, duct tape, and ferrocerium rod. Then add some creativity, and your neck knife and wallet can be instant light a camp!


Hopefully it goes without saying to remove all cash and valuables from your wallet beforehand......

Safety in numbers right!

Perhaps take a butch or two along and introduce them to the wonders of Bushcraft while feeling the safety they might offer.

Of course if you're looking for solitude, that's a whole other matter.

I may have missed this in the thread but any thoughts on stainless steel vs high carbon blades? From what I've read, stainless requires less maintenance but is harder to sharpen, though it doesn't dull as quickly. The main tasks would be some batoning, feather sticks and striking the ferro rod.

On the upper end, I'm liking the Benchmade Bushcraft 162. (Bark River knives are out of my price range.) It's stainless steel and reviews note that it keeps its edge longer than expected. It can also be sent to Benchmade and sharpened for free. I like the holes in the handle that allow fashioning a spear much easier.

I get confused when trying to choose a high carbon bushcraft knife. I read that the blades are more fragile but easy to sharpen. I want durability and dependability. Am I overreacting to worry about this? In this category, I like the ESEE 6 but reviews of using it with a ferro rod aren't great. I'm also thinking of trying out a Hultafors OK4 to get an affordable idea of working with a high carbon blade. (I do know it's a 3/4 tang and I want a full tang.)

Does anyone have opinions on which to go with?
