Water, the life giving element we sometimes take for granted is not always available. The human body can last almost 30 days without food, but when it comes to water, that is a totally different story. It is estimated that an adult human male can survive 4 days without water. This time is drastically reduced depending on the environment and the activity he undertakes. Water is available today in all developed countries and it has become a valuable source of income for some companies, after all, this liquid is being bottled and sold on at a large scale for profit. But if we take today’s modern man from his day to day environment and we place him outside his comfort zone, in the wild, what would be his chance of survival?
Ever since the dawn of time the ability to make fire has been one of the man’s greatest achievements as fire was a tool that drastically influenced the quality of life. In today’s modern times there are a lot of tools that can help you start a fire, from mechanical to fuel based tools and this may be the reason why we take fire for granted. We are so infatuated by technology that when it comes to simple things like making a fire in a technology free environment, we can only speculate on how one can start a fire, especially in the wild.
