I'm a Survivor...or at least I'd like to be.

Lately I have been thinking about survival skills....sometimes, I think the world is getting be a dire place and that I might need to have survival skills. There just seem to be so many more natural disasters lately.

This method of starting a fire seems REALLY easy and I will be trying it to see if I can do it easily.

[chuckle] I'm an electronic engineer and it somehow never occurred to me to use the PP3 and steel wool ... Which will amaze all those people who know me well enough to not leave any matches where my idle fingers will get to them.

PP3's will be by far the best as they have the terminals on the same side.


The wikipedia entry for PP3's says that even wet steel wool can be used.
I am going to try this under safe conditions this summer. :-)
