Survival Tip: Pack a small bag of regular Fritos corn chips in your pack for an emergency fire starter. (Pack a second bag if you are tempted to eat them.) Six to eight (6-8) chips and a match is all you need to get your fire started.
- Place chips in a small tepee formation reserving one chip to start fire.
- Light the one chip with a match and lay it on the tepee of chips.
- These will stay lit for 3-4 minutes while you lay on your tender and small sticks.
- Gradually build up the size of your wood pieces until you have a good fire.
