Survivor Man - Jumper Cable Fire

Fire starting using sparks and gasoline is dubious at the best of times but when survival depends upon it, it takes on a whole new intensity. Let’s try this way that. 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 damp snow, I’ve gotta work extra hard to keep this going. Diligence is always required if I wanna stay warm, and the added advantage is that the fire serves as a signal for potential rescuers. They’re 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 got. I’m gonna use it now. Well, 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 that are coming my way, as well. It worked, it took a while to get that spark to take. I had to pour the gas under and over 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, but then I noticed after a while that 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 pull 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, I don’t know, compress board sort of stuff, and threw it underneath and it’s burning and it's keeping the fire going. Now I can heat water 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.
