How to light a fire and keep it going in the rain.

Howdy… Jason here and the ability to light a fire first time – even with wet wood – is one of the basic survival skills you need to master.

And it will be a snap with these powerful tips …

Even when dead branches are soaked with rain, stripping off the bark will likely provide dry inner wood that will burn quite readily.

Keep a particular look out for branches from pine trees and pine needles. These have a high resin content (as you’ll discover if you ever make the mistake of parking your car under one on a hot day!).

The pine resin is highly flammable, helping your fire will burn brightly regardless of the rain.

Break the branches into pieces about a foot (30 cm) long and pile them into a cone shape.

This is particularly important if you want to keep the fire going in the rain, because a cone presents the least surface area to the rain.

If you don’t have a convenient roof that faces towards the sun you might think you’ll be denied all the advantages of solar energy – but you’d be wrong.

Because I’ve just come across a most remarkable invention that pulls in and concentrates sunlight from any position – even when set up on the ground!

And that’s because of the ingenious shape of this solar dish, which works in much the same way as a satellite receiving dish.

So if you want to enjoy all the advantages of cost-free, pollution-free solar power, in virtually any location, then take at look here.

P.S. In my next email I’ll reveal the important skill of making smoke signals to enable rescuers to pinpoint your location. So be sure not to miss it.
