That's the weird sh1t I was talking about. "How's my body?". "Are my tires good or are they on the edge?". Everyone on any forum discussing "survival" is always about firearms, food and water. I bet it's the odd stuff that snuffs out the light for most people.
Primitave skills, the bow drill. Whoever mentioned that needs to stop. I've made a fire with a bow drill and it taught me a lesson: never be without a better way to make a fire. I bet in an emergency situation a bow drill would kill you. It took 10 big fat cheeseburgers worth of energy to make a fire with that "holy grail" of firecraft. Get some ferro rods and keep 'em everywhere. They are a good backup for bic lighters.
