Winter Fire Making Skills - Why Don't We Use Them.

Philip Werner at Section Hiker has a superb post about winter fire making skills.  His post focuses on why don't backcountry travelers make use of those skills.  Hmmmmm

"The latest issue of the Appalachia Journal arrived last night and I immediately turned to the Accidents Section to read the analysis of this autumn’s accident reports. Established in 1876, Appalachian is America’s longest running journal of mountaineering and conservation. Published quarterly, it’s known for its well written stories and essays, and its famous accident report section. Incidentally, I met the current editor, Christine Woodside, when we both volunteered as Samaritan care givers for a rescue on Mt Washington, a few years ago."
