  1. I think he should do the fire instead of explain how to do it, explain how to do it at the same time he does it!

  2. I guess if u have never been camping before this could be benificial.

    LOL, it will light, if you can get it to light =)

    I see no real need to keep sticks in my kit

    tinder maybe, sticks no

  4. This guy again, it’s surprising that he could make so many usless vids

  5. Yes he has done that before, unlike some people commenting here 🙂 I like the fact he doesn’t tell you what lighter to use, because there are several ways. The only thing he forgets is that there are many trees/bushes you don’t want to burn because they are poisonous. Not only the tree/bush itself but also the smoke can be dangerous.
