Become a fire expert
You've been stalking the deer for days. Finally the animal has been killed, your stomach is rumbling, and you're looking forward to a nice piece of grilled venison. Too bad, if this was a million years ago and you had no matches or lighters. But it would have been no problem if our fire expert had been a member of your tribe. He will teach you how to make a fire just as in the days of our ancestors.
Fire lighting made easy
Three things are needed to build a fire: fuel, oxygen and a way of reaching the point at which the fuel takes light. The former, i.e. the fuel, can be found in every forest. Oxygen is freely available. But you need to supply the third element. Our expert will show you how to use a "bow drill", as well as telling what tinder to use and which types of wood are suitable. You will learn other techniques as well. How do you start a fire with a flint, and how long does it take to get a fire going using sun and glass?
Homemade bread as your reward
At last your fire is alight, and slowly develops a good glow. Now you can skewer the meat - if you really do have a deer to hand. But it's quicker and easier to satisfy your hunger by wrapping your own handmade dough around a stick, sit comfortably by the fire, throw on some more wood and reflect on the day as you enjoy your own fire-baked bread.
