Not All Advice is Good Advice.

I’m up late watching some random wilderness survival show that I found on Netflix, and the host is offering some pretty crappy advice for heading into the mountains in the winter.

He keeps harping that you need to bring matches with you. I hate to break it to him, but matches suck. Especially in the winter. Especially in a wet environment.
Should you have a way to start a fire when heading into the woods? Yep. Does it need to be matches? Nope, find something better (like a waterproof lighter, or a firesteel).
