Make sure to Practice Your Fire Making in a controlled and safe environment, so when it comes time to do it for real you won't have any nasty surprises.
Practice Your Fire Making
Last winter I tried to make a fire with some sticks and tinder, that I found in the great outdoors. I even resorted to using a Bic lighter it was still harder than you think. If I can't do it with a lighter, I sure can't do it with just some sticks.
It was horrible.
Everyone needs to understand that we all need to practice making fires, in a controlled situation. Keep a firesteel ready for those times when lighters won't work!
Hopefully you'll never have to make a fire in a true survival situation, but if you ever have to, at least you'll know what's in store.
