How to Make a Fire When It’s Raining

If there’s one bad habit that we all share, it’s a lack of imagination when it comes to thinking through survival situations. And yes, even preppers fail to fully consider these situations from time to time. We’re all human.

What, you may ask, am I talking about?

Well, stop what you’re doing for a moment, and try to imagine a survival situation. Are you being mugged? Fighting a wild animal? Trying to escape from a burning building? In any of these scenarios, did you imagine yourself not winning the fight or otherwise failing to survive? If you didn’t do that, then you’re not really preparing yourself for the worst.

If instead, you try to imagine what it would take for you to fail, you’ll start to consider really scary possibilities that you had overlooked before, and you’ll be a better prepper for it. You should also try to apply this mental exercise to all of your survival skills, and see what you come up with. You’ll get a really strong sense of where your strengths and weaknesses are.

If say, you try applying this mental exercise to your ability to make a fire, you’ll probably come up with a really obvious scenario that a lot of people overlook. What if you were in a survival situation, and you had to make a fire while it’s raining? Even if the rain has stopped there’s a really good chance that every bit of wood you find is going to be soaking wet. How are you going to create warmth when you need it the most?

Well ponder no longer because this is how it’s done.
