Preparedmind101 discusses yet another debatable topic: Fire Starting in Emergency/Survival situations from a prepper mindset as opposed to a primitive/bushcraft mindset. For too long “Survival” has been considered synonymous with “In the woods”. And by extension, Bushcraft = Survival Skills. Most people do not spend the majority of their life in the woods. Preppers plan ahead for any eventuality. It is a complete different strategy.
Therefore, I tend to try to remind people to “Think outside the box”. When an true emergency happens, what matters is GET THE FIRE STARTED ALREADY! How many ways are there all around you that could help start a fire? What items can you carry for one reason that would also serve to start a fire? What other things can you use or have with you so that your primitive bushcraft fire starting method (ASSUMING you are in the woods!) becomes what it should be…the LAST resort? What offer isn’t “the right way”…it’s just a different way at looking at a problem.
