Survival Tips: How To Gather Kindling Now For The Fire Later

Survival Tips: How To Gather Kindling Now For The Fire Later

This Survival Tip is a little trick I learned many years ago to make it easier to be able to build a fire once I arrived at camp. In many instances you pass up a lot of really good trees with awesome kindling on them that are just begging to be used in a fire. But then when you get to camp, there is no good kindling around. Using this tip will help you to have some kindling on hand just in case there isn’t any near your chosen camp site. Of course this technique can also be used in a wilderness survival situation. If you have been walking along trying to find your way home or whatever the case may be, you can grab some kindling along the way, that way when you stop to build a fire for the evening, you will have some kindling on hand.

Welcome to Reality Survival Channel! On this survival channel I teach a full range of Wilderness Survival Skills. My goal is to educate folks on real world survival tips and techniques including Wilderness Survival, Urban Survival, Primitive Survival, Bushcraft, & more. I also do Outdoor Gear Reviews on Survival Kits, Survival Gear, Survival Knives, Guns, Bug Out Bag Gear & just about any kind of Every Day Carry (EDC) Gear & disaster preparedness or prepping gear. I am a prepper & also do some DIY & How to videos on prepping as well as teaching different Survival skills, bushcraft skills, & prepper or prepping skills to help you sort out what really works & what doesn’t. I learned wilderness survival skills when I was a Survival instructor for the USAF about 15 years ago (class 97-02). On Reality Survival Channel you will see a mix of survival & prepping videos each week. I upload one survival skill video, one gear review video, one prepping video every week on Tue, Thurs & Sat.
