After a very stressful day at work, you choose to finish your work off from home and return home to very breezy evening weather. The pleasant climate lures you out and entices you to go for a long walk. You get so mesmerized by Mother Nature that you end up roaming too far off the trails. To add fuel to the fire, it starts raining cats and dogs. You are completely stuck, totally drenched, looking for a shelter, and in dire need of the warmth of some sort to protect you from the freezing weather.
Imagine if you ever get lost in one such situation, what would or could you possibly do? You cannot help but look the situation up in Google.

For instance, do you know you can ignite a fire with a bow drill? Every material has an auto-ignition temperature beyond which it will create a spark that can help anyone to start a fire. Make a bow from willow, birch, hazel, and sycamore a branch of these trees for the best results. If you are in a tight spot, any wood should do. Cut the contact-making end of the drill into a sharp point. Another small block of wood is required to create a spark. To string your bow drill, you can use sinew from animals or dry the stems from nettles or similar plants. Finally, you will need a palm-sized piece of stone to block the top end of the drill.
