Mora GAW winner | Fire Tips for Extreme Weather Conditions

Congratulations to our Mora HD Knife winner.
In this video we explore starting fire in extreme weather conditions and in this case it is raining for 2 days in Missouri. We try to find dry tinder by looking under logs, processing wood and collecting wind blown dead standing tinder. By getting your fire off the ground and utilizing a great quality ferrocerium rod fire starter you can manage to make a sustainable fire. Learn the resources in your bio-region and it will make fire starting easier for you. You can also cover your fire with a shelter or put it in the side of a hill by utilizing a snake hole fire pit. We make a 1 minute shelter with our rain gear in this video but if you don’t have rain gear you can use natures foliage.
