I would like to have a serious survivalist/bunker builder expert around to post some "How-To" instructions and images. And it would be awesome to have the same stuff about primitive fire starting and finding/using carbide for fire starting too.

Primitive fire starting? I know that.

Then set up a "how to". A step-by-step with with photos or a video in the library section would be awesome.
Perhaps even a list of what woods work best and what's the best tinder material.

Cottonwood works great. Heres a pretty simple run down(Move as required):
Materials:
    Multi-floral rose(vine)
    Deer hide
    Dried-out rotten wood
    Dried grass
    Stone
    A spindle
    And cottonwood
Setting it up:
Bend the multi-floral rose into the general shape of a bow and use the deer hide(about 1/4-1/2 inch wide) as the bow 'string'
Put a small hole about the size of the end of the spindle into the rock
Put small, smooth, indents into the cottonwood, with a small v-cut in the edge
Starting the fire:
Put the spindle into the bow, putting a loop around it.
Put the rock on the top of the spindle
Put a leaf(Or cardboard) under the cottonwood
Insert the spindle into the cottonwood
Hold onto the rock and use the bow to spin the spindle
After you have a small pile of the resulting material, put it on top of a pile of the grass.
Put the rotten wood on top
Blow onto it
(This requires practice. I had trouble with this for a while.)
I'll get pictures up when I have time.

Bob is not missing he has just been at Universal Studios in Orlando.
The wife and I went to see Diagon Alley.
Butter Beer is ok but not worth standing in line an hour for.
It was slow the first day we were in the park so we just walked up to everything with no wait.
