Making Fire from Nothing

Matt Lawrence is a lifelong survival and wilderness lover.

As a kid he tested the bounds of what could be done with the

least amount of material.  In this adventure he shares his knowledge

of the different ways fire can be made.

Things you will learn: How to use a bowdrill, effectively using matches,

proper use of magnesium bars, how to set yourself up for success in fire building.  These will be shared as you walk through some of Del Norte County's

famous woods.
