Life comes at us in both a predictable and un-predictable way and while you can shape it to some extent with the decisions that you make we are still just rolling the dice in the big game of life so lets put the odds in your favor.

Graphics notwithstanding here I am sure many of you have seen some form of the diagram or have seen it portrayed on TV. In a pinch any of these techniques will work for you if you have a battery with some life to it and some FINE steel wool. There are several types of steel wool out there and some of it works better than others so a little experimentation is called for. Now one can never have too many ways to start a fire, have a backup. I generally tend to use the AA or 9 volt type battery because it is very light to carry along with steel wool but do your self a favor and keep them separated, me I keep them in separate plastic boxes and use as needed. BE WARNED using batteries can be dangerous with steel wool as you will be creating red hot heat so be careful.
