How To Build a Self-Feeding Fire – Wilderness Survival Skills

- in Survival Skills

In this video and article I demonstrate a technique for building a fire structure that will burn continuously and does not require ANY managing. This is a great method to know if you need the heat from a fire while you are sleeping, but do not want to wake up repeatedly during the night to add more wood.

    A great way of testing your fire skills is the android app Lord of Fire
    I’m kidding of course, but if you have some spare time, you could give it a try.

  4. Thank you for this video.  I am very new to this; I just lit my first successful fire a few hours ago.  I found this video particularly useful because while I have seen several videos here which use a tipi or cone shape, this is the first I've come across which really shows how to build the structure.  I am going to remember this method and use it in the future.

  5. As long as you want it to burn? can it be 6 years?

    Take a look at this video on YouTube:

  7. Also I u dig a pit then make a platform covering it you ca add lots more wood without the effects of wind

  8. Okay, gonna try this.

    Will get back to you when I've had a go at this in the UK.

  9. I would laugh if his shirt caught on fire while he was blowing on it

    i like the concept but how much heat does this method actually produce I'm wondering???

  13. Amazing vids. Thanks i learn a lot. Hope you could keep it going.

  14. Great explanation, great demonstration, great video. Earned a subscriber! 

  15. And btw, this was my shortest lasting fire

  16. You idiot! U don't even know what ur using! There is no such thing as a magnesium Ferro rod! Ferrocium is a different material than magnesium. Its one or the other.

  17. you seem to be knowing what you are doing, but why didn't you clear away the leaves before you started?

  18. One tip….get a kleenex.
