11. The Feather Stick
Starting a fire is huge in a survival situation, especially when it’s cold and/or wet outside. It is unlikely you’ll bring a fire-starting kit, a lighter, or matches when you get lost. This is where we have one of the coolest ways to survive when lost in the wild, as we refer you to the infamous “feather stick.”
To make one, find a tree and remove as much bark as you can and cut out some of the wood from the inner tree. Once you to, peel open the layers of the wood and you’ll make what appears like a feather. This will help you start fires easier, even if it gets wet. It’s quite a useful tinder.
