Basic Outdoor Survival Skills
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned survivalist, take the time to practice building a shelter or identifying edible plants. I believe in always staying on top of your game with these 5 outdoor survival skills which can literally save your life in a survival situation.
1. Building a Fire
Learning different methods of how to build a fire is important. The easiest way, of course, is to use a match or a lighter.
It is important to remember, however, that you should never rely just on these 2 methods alone – your lighter could run out of fluid or your matches could get wet. Primitive methods are important for EVERYONE to learn.
The following methods are great to practice while you are camping:
- Ferro Rod – Check out this great video on different Ferro rods you can use.
- Hand Drill – This video shows a primitive fire-making technique with a hand drill.
