At 4:40 in the video I added a card that tells people to check out the Full30 forum. I also have a link in the description to Full30 forum to the thread that Joe started titled “the disease SHTF scenario” Because I believe that there is good info for people to think about in that thread.
I will put Zeke’s video up here.

Main problem I have with carrying a bic lighter, is that they are a pressurized cylinder of flammable gas. During the safety lecture of a welding class, it was stated that they have an explosive force around the level of 1/4 stick of dynamite, and given that they are plastic cylinders, they are not good to have around anything hot (like a welder).

Zippo lighters contain flammable liquid, but they are metal and not pressurized, so they aren’t going to get all explody.

That is a legitimate concern.

Had one fall out of my pocket once, roughly 100’ fall to concrete, must have landed on the flint wheel as it blew up about as you described, I was pretty shocked

I’ve got a couple of the small bic lighters in my toolbox at work, but I treat them as a hazard when I use them. At home, I mainly use matches.

I’ve got a couple propane camping stoves, and a few of the tiny, folding, single burner backpack stoves that sit on top of the smaller pressurized fuel canisters (usually a mix of butane and other gases, as I recall). They are great for camping, but the thought of taking them anywhere that I expect the possibility of someone shooting at me, puts them into the “nope, don’t want that anywhere near me” category.

Matches, Zippo lighters, alcohol stoves, and even the little folding metal boxes that let you cook over a small wood fire, all have some definite advantages in some situations.

I would probably die if I only had five minutes, I do not have a bug out bag or a stock of food and water. I do have a working well and it’s a dug well so a bucket could retrieve water if needed. I have a few guns and mags loaded but not a lot. I have plenty of ammo. if law broke down or an invasion, I don’t plan on leaving here. too old to go far. hmmmm… I may need more toilet paper. I have plenty of deer meat but if electricity was to go it would ruin.

If I had only 5 minutes, I could manage rifle, handgun, loaded mags, plate carrier, boots, and a couple bottles of water. Anything more than that, is going to involve sorting through stuff that’s packed up and stored in more than one room.

Main reason I could manage as much as I could in 5 minutes, is that I live in a rural area, so police response time is more in line with showing up when it’s time to interview witnesses and make reports.

You can smell one a block away. We were told to keep them in the firebase when we went out on patrol. They also can leak and burn your leg, or your jewels. (been there, done that. Fording streams gets them wet also. A Piezo striker is water proof and fuelless.

If society collapses to a point where my only survival option is to bug out of my home in 5 minutes, I would rather die quickly. There are worse things than death, IMHO.

It’s all right here. I’m staying put and sitting it out.

I always have water purification straws and or pumps with me. Kinda like a CAT… just gear I usually always have. There are only a few spots around where I live I can trust the water… and that is like 15 hours away by foot.
Plenty of fresh water around, just needs to be filtered.
