One of the most important survival tactics, IMO.

How do you start a fire with a batery and steel wool? This sounds like a really good tip. Thanks for the thread star and flag. I love ATS survival forum and is the reson I signed up in the first place.

You need one of those rectangular batteries (nine volt i think) and if you rub the battery against the steel wool it ignites and can start the tinder burning.

Thanks for this great tip.

I am going out to a buddy's ranch this weekend and we'll be trying out some survival techniques. We could try this if it gets too cold.

that was in a movie i watched a long time ago or tv....might have been grizzly adams or some movie with robert redford

does work

throw a emergency space blanket in the trunk and that will save you some time digging.

another thing out there is covering oneself with the space blanket enclosing yourself with a candle buring at the bottom.

theres a youtube video of that i believe somewhere.
