Is there a good education source out there on the internet or youtube for building a good fire? I know the basics but am looking for something to teach me as much as possible about building a fire under poor conditions...or even building a fire by rubbing sticks! can someone direct me to a good article or video?

Check here:

This is a Wikki page with a bunch of articles on basic woods lore. There are several articles about fire building, using different techniques, and includes a basic fire building page.

Note: This is not a BPL style of being in the outdoors sort of page!

+1 on Ray Mears, that guy is the real deal. Look up his Bushcraft and World of Survival series.

Don't know if he has films/TV shows but Mors Kochanski is also another bushcraft expert.
