FIRE FROM FLINT AND STEEL
This class will teach you the methods of starting a flint and steel fire, making your own char cloth tinder, and building a successful fire!
1 ½ hours.
BUILDING FIRES IN THE RAIN
Hypothermic conditions, including rain, make starting fires an even harder task! Learn to build, start, and maintain fires in wet conditions.
ADVANCED FIRE CHALLENGE
This class is for students who are proficient in fire making, have taken a fire class of mine in the past, or who feel they are a fire starting master! Your skills will be pushed hard by rain, wind, and time! Every student's fire building ability will be tested under pressure in a severe downpour, even if we have to create rain ;).
