Survivorman Fire (Jump) Starter

Fire starting using sparks and gasoline is dubious at the best of times, but when survival depends upon it, it takes on a new whole intensity. Let’s try this way, then. Here we go! Finally, after four days stuck in the car this fire will be a huge boost psychologically. Didn’t quite go as planned. In this damped snow, I got to work extra hard to keep this going. Diligence is always required if I want to stay warm, and the other advantage is that the fire serves as a signal for potential rescuers. They are more likely to go to investigate a car with a fire burning behind it than simply a dark car sitting in the snow. Seeing all the panic, I didn’t even remember to use the tinder I gathered. I’m going to use it now. Oh, this instruction manual came in handy. Keeping a large amount of ready-to-go tinder and kindling for the fire is vital to success, but battling the elements is always a challenge to staying warm. It stopped raining. Clouds look thick and are coming my way as well. It worked. It took a while to get that spark to take, I had to pour a gas all around to the paper, and I tried to spread it out. I don’t know. I thought it would have gone better inside the beer can with the fumes and everything, but it didn’t seem to make any difference. Got it to take, ran over here. Then, I noticed after a while the fire was burning that it wasn’t burning down into my woods because the pot lid was still underneath it, stopping the fire from going down. So, I had to put the pot lid out, which caused more trouble with the fire. So, I grabbed a piece of the inside of the car, it was like this, compressed board sort of stuff and threw it underneath and it´s burning, and that’s keeping the fire going. Now, I can heat water up over the top of the fire. That’s one way to save a match. The car heater was nice, but a full fire begins to put motivation into me, like nothing else can.
