MWJ Wilderness Survival SeriesWelcome to Survival Series #5.  Today we are talking about fire starting materials and I will be taking you for a trek in the wilderness to show you everything that I have been talking about on my radio show this week on the Survival Mom Radio Network.

As I have mentioned in my radio shows, on my videos and in my blog posts fire is one of the MOST important survival skills.

I believe that it is a skill that many people take for granite and think that it is not something that needs to be practiced or not worthy of any prior attention, but I feel that it is something that should be practiced and that time should be taken in your area and surroundings to allow you to determine what may work best for you.

As with anything practice makes perfect and these skills could be save lives.

Again be sure to take caution when lighting fires, especially this time of year and I would be thrilled if you would take the time to enjoy these videos with a child.  Whether it is a child, grandchild, etc these are great skills to pass along.

Below you will find my YouTube video to go along with the MWJ Survival Series #5 –  Fire starting materials.  Please watch and educate yourself.

The Alaska Guide Creations pack that I showed you is a great item to start with and for you ladies I have a special giveaway going on for the regular size bino pouch/survival pouch in a pink camo.   Enter below and best of luck to each of you.  Be sure to pass this page on to your friends so they too can enter.  FREE is always good and I would love to set one of you up with this FANTASTIC pouch..

This series has also become a part of my radio show every Wednesday on the Survival Mom Radio Network. I will discuss the topic on the show and then back it up with a post and a video to walk you through whatever skill I am discussing each week.

After you watch this video, I would so appreciate it if you would please leave me a comment and let me know what you have thought of the series so far and what fire starting method appealed to you the most.

Next week I do believe I will have a surprise in store for you and look forward to sharing it.  I mentioned not to purchase your tools right away and next week I will cover some recommended tools, suppliers that I would recommend and continue you on with our series.

Thanks for joining me this week and I hope to have you return and join me next Wednesday for Survival Series #6.
