My Complete Fire Starting Kit For Jungle Expeditions – I got it for free with 2 packs of smokes at 7-11
How have I started my fire in the wilderness since I was 12? A Magnesium Fire Tool? … Nope, … Swedish FireSteel? … Nope, Rubbing Two Sticks Together? … Nope, A Bow-Drill? … Nope
I carry a disposable lighter.
Yep, thats my entire fire starting kit.
Sure I know how to make fire from constructing a Bow-Drill, Fire Plough, using a coke can, and even using a rubber filled with water (who the hell carry’s a rubber with them in the mountains anyway?).
But the only way that works 100% of the time with minimal effort (I am a lazy survivalist) is just lighting stuff on fire with my lighter. Sure it doesn’t look as cool as scraping a gigantic wave of sparks from a Swedish FireSteel onto a tinder bundle, but it works.
The Laplander Stove
About 30 years ago when I was running around the north woods of Wisconsin near Hayward. I met an old gentleman who’s name escapes me now but he was an interesting and colorful character.
This old guy made his living by doing things in nature; for example he would cut fire wood in the fall to sell, hunt, trap, do day labor on farms etc. in summer he would fish and collect plants to sell to the local flower shops etc. ditto on the day labor.
I admire the fact that he did not have a full time job or any job for that matter and was not what folks would call successful by the modern American standards but to me he was rich beyond my wildest dreams.
To be able to earn a living from nature and to be content with that is something I have always wanted.
Anyway, He showed me what he called a “Laplander Stove”; pretty simple really because it is just a log with slots cut into it.
