Lot of people say oh i carry a lighter to start a fire i put lighters in many men's hands and they hadn't been able to start a fire so i'm going to show you exactly how to do that the first thing we need is tinder tender is a dry combustible material we're going to take some of this bark from a cedar tree now we're going to process this cedar bark.
Up to make it more combustible by splitting it apart so this is called the platform embrace method we've got a brace here and we got a platform to keep our tinder off the wet ground now we need to get kindling this is wood off the ground that's not wet you hear that pop and this needs to be pencil lead size up to pencil size now we're going.
To light our tinder the brace allows me to lift up the line underneath it this helps give oxygen to fuel so i can pick it up to help the flame grow i've let my tender is flaming up and lighting my kindling now i have my fuel here because it's rained a few hours ago i have it sitting here to the side this.
Will help dry it out fuel is finger up to wrist size you want to keep your fire small and manageable just to the point of whatever you need
