Survival matches are normally waterproof and if you were stranded and managed to procure a survival pack from the wreckage, you are likely to find one within. Remember to store them in waterproof containers along with a striker pad you can depend on.
This method is quite useful on bright and sunny days. The lens you’re going to use for this method of igniting a fire can come from a camera, binoculars, telescopic sights, or the traditional magnifying glass. Take the lens and hold it at an angle that concentrates the rays of the sun on the tinder. Hold the lens at this angle on the same spot until the piece of tinder begins to smolder. Now gently blow on this spot or use a fan to start the fire.
If you happen to have ammunition on you, start by carefully extracting the bullet from its shell casing, and then use the gunpowder inside as tinder. Even the smallest spark will ignite the powder, which will ignite the fire in the tinder or kindling you’ve gathered.
