We all know that fire is very important in a survival situation. It is also very important for the hiker and the average woodsman. So, I looked around for a thread that listed as many ways to start a fire as people could possibly think of, but to no success. So I decided to make one. How to Start a Fire! This is not a guide. It is more like a wiki-pedia page. I will list every way that I can think of starting a fire. If you know of one that I have not listed yet, then please post it below. I will then add your post to the OP. The goal is to get over 50 different ways of starting a fire. 9 ways to start a fire #1 Matches http://i932.photobucket.com/albums/ad163/marinaisbomb/fire.png #2 Lighters Lighters image by LetsSinAndHope on Photobucket #3 Firesteel [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_zngipl11Q]YouTube - Swedish Army FireSteel Firestarter Causes Office Fire‎[/ame] #4 Flint and Iron [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDsIbKruM1Y]YouTube - Making Fire with Flint and Steel‎[/ame] #5 Magnifying Glass [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syhTnBR_MOk&feature=related]YouTube - magnifying glass + newspaper = FIRE‎[/ame] #6 Steel Wool and a Battery [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iha9vQvnWMU&feature=related]YouTube - How to make fire without matches or a lighter‎[/ame] #7 Bow Drill [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DC_54ICw-ao]YouTube - Bow Drill Primitive Fire Starting‎[/ame] #8 Coke Can and a Chocolate Bar Wildwood Survival - Fire from a Can of Coke and a Chocolate Bar #9 Engine Spark Plug [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbPADFZoqkI]YouTube - Dual Survival - Swamped (part 2)‎[/ame] I think that's enough for right now.
