To Build a Fire

What key advice did the old-timer give him? Why, in your opinion, did the man not follow his advice?

Several times in the story the man recalls the old-timer from Sulfur Creek.

The old Timer told the man never to travel in cold like he was experiencing and, in particular, never to travel alone. The man's judgment was clouded by his own arrogance and hubris.
