    A B what is this a test? (No hate) 

  6. I was thinking more like in terms of bare hand survival, your small airplane just crashed into the lake, you just got out of the freezing water and you got nothing are soaking wet and cold, how do you make a fire? and how to stay warm and survive?

  7. or just use gasoline

  8. Where did u get the fire starter 

  9. Holy cow your my pastor at the barn hey tim

  10. Dude, you used a "Firestarter". This is not a survival skill.  What if i had nothing? And i needed to start up a fire with my 2 hands and some sticks?

  11. What kind of starter

  12. Cool. But not helpful 🙁

  13. Hat already says it LIKE A BOSS
