I'm very "green" when it comes to primitive survival stuff, I been watching various outdoor survivor related shows, and various youtube videos. I'm determined to make fire off a hand drill, my missus doesn't think i can pull it off, I'm going to show her I can. I just ordered my first knife off ebay yesterday and i'm determined to hand drill it up. I plan on rewatching various dual survivor, etc... tv shows and taking notes as well. I believe I heard there's something like 25 different primitive methods to fire making. I've seen bow drill videos but that doesn't interest me, looks too easy, hand drill is where it's at. I find it interesting when it comes to survival the most difficult aspect(food) is least important. Having to learn about medical, and editable plants as well as dangerous ones, learn about hunting, skinning, etc...when your body can easily go a few weeks at least without food, depending on how fat you are. Anyway fire building is my short term goal, want to become awesome at that, first hand drill, other friction methods then maybe sun methods. Seen a guy make a fire with a water bottle haha.
