This video pretty much violates every principle of LNT, as well as suggesting that you break the law in most national forests and national parks in the West. Gotta wonder who edits these things. And who the "experts" are who suggest creating a new fire ring where none already exists.


Completely clueless!!!

I posted on the video. It is so bad, we must be missing something. Be interesting to see what responses I get

Yeah, pretty bad! I guess the upside is that if you need to show someone how to do something as simple as make a fire-ring, "surviving" is about the last thing they're going to be doing for very long. Maybe how to field dress and grill up a marmot or two can be their next video.

Hell, I feel like I've violated LNT ethics if I don't re-fluff the detritus on the ground where my tent was before I leave a site.

That's the guy.. Long story but he was in the outhouse when I went in but hiding under the toilet tank. Had no idea he was in there until I came out and someone pointed him out.
