How to make a fire.
Of course a lighter is faster, but in some cases you may need it.
Btw, it takes time and effort, and you’ll need to have everithing prepared to maintain the ember live. Check the “Figure 7-5. Methods for laying the fires” image for more info.
Knots are one of those things that are always useful.
The Turks Head Neckerchief Slide is an easy and pretty way to start with knots, and the result is a pretty neckerchief slide you can always bring with you. Also, if you do it with paracord, you can also bring 6 feet of paracord in your pocket. And if you don’t like to use it as neckerchief slide, you can use it as a keychain ball.
Its really easy to create. You’ll only need…
- Approximately 6 ft of nylon rope (preferably a bright snazzy color)
- A pen or pencil to help tie stopper knots. (optional)
- Scissors and a candle to trim and fuse the ends of the rope
