After a seminar on building a fire in wet conditions, Adam Dewey of Sandpoint applies the techniques to stoke a blaze on Feb. 1, 2010, during a misty morning search and rescue team exercise at Priest Lake State Park. The instructor for this group of students was Nick Weber of the Survival School at Fairchild Air Force Base. The next photos follow Weber’s progression for making a life-saving fire in what some people might consider hopeless conditions.
