WAB do you think the two Yuri built the fire themselves without help from the others? Witness statement implies it was work of more than two people? What are your thoughts?
I cannot make comments on testimony because I do not see who it spoke and that he has told particularly. If to estimate now, my experience in such travel not more low, and much more above, than at people who then that spoke that. Therefore all should be compared in identical conditions. It especially concerns expert estimations.
Work on the device and kindling of a fire has no considerable quantity and work.
If look on operations, that it turns out:
1.It is necessary to make the decision that will do a fire on this place.
2.Look round around and to choose that of what to make a fire. Even if have not reflected on that what on capacity it should be.
3.Get on a tree and to find the necessary branches which can be broken.
4.Break them and dump downwards. Below collect it and quantity to one place.
5.Preliminary (before 4.) choose place for fire and clear away snow how much it probably for the fire making.
6.Plane small chips and/or prepare available paper, rags (or that is another that burns) for fire kindling.
7.Start light fire, gradually increasing the size of burning material.
It is all that it is necessary make. It is necessary to watch only a fire further that it would not go out.
As it is easy see here quite enough two persons and there is no great volume of work.
But is and complicating factors.
1.This process goes in continuous time, and it is necessary to consider and arising intervals between separate necessary actions.
2.External conditions brake and complicate all process. Especially it is influenced by a cold.
However it can be overcome because those who it does have strong will and they are stimulated with desire to survive. Therefore they did not pay attention to any small accompanying traumas.
