Having the right gear is essential for any wilderness trip. With much thought and preparation, the following list of survival tools have been selected to accompany us on our Yukon River trip.

Most of these items can be purchased directly from this website, excluding firearms. If we cannot supply these items to you, there is a link to available vendors.

More products will be added to this list as the organization of our trip progresses!


By far the best working firestarter out there! Simply crumble the Wet Fire on your tinder and throw a spark on it! It really is that easy!

Wet Fire burns clean and last long enough for you to gather more fuel for your fire.

Fatwood is an excellent way to keep your fire burning for a long time. It does not work from a simple spark very easily. However, once a very small fire is lit, fatwood will keep any size flame and keep it burning long enough to dry out wet tinder and get a real fire blazing!

Tinder Quick is another excellent way to get your fire going quickly!

Tinder Quick lights easily and will hold a flame for long periods of time.

Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel's dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers.

It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues.
