As with all outdoor pursuits, safety is of the utmost importance in fire building.
Sometimes the best way to learn is through humor, which the Okee Dokee Brothers delivers easily in this how-to video.
The Okee Dokee Brothers are stalwarts when it comes to outdoor oriented entertainment. Sometimes overlooked, they sing songs that speak to the heart of everyone outdoor adventurer that walks, floats or swims the earth. There fire building skills may be a little less than desirable though.
Obviously, the Okee Dokee Brothers (who aren't really brothers) do a great job teaching through humor. Outdoorsmen at heart, they tell the story of adventure and exploration through their songs.
While this fire building parody is a bit goofy, they get the message through on things it look out for and what NOT to do. I encourage everyone to take a moment to learn some of these basic skills and maybe even have fun in the process.
I also encourage you to take a few moments to check out their songs and videos. They are entertainment for the entire family.
