Boy, Micheal you certainly hit the nail on the head with this one! Just
because someone is a scout does not mean they can handle any lighter
fluids/even propane. I have seen many a hairless arm or lack of eyebrows
from people who think they know how to light a fire! Doesn't scouts
condone firestarter (candle wax poured into paper egg cartons) anymore?
I personnally don't think anyone who cannot start a fire without any
liquids should never be able to touch liquids, especially in front of any
kids. Kids are so facinated with fire, especially big fire, they don't
understand how adding liquid can make a fire crawl up your arm. I don't
know a troop that doesn't have their own firebugs!
Thanks, but I will stick to A frames and twigs! I've worked in the burn
unit and seen what it does, my husband was also burned as a child by
electrical burns and although not exactly the same it was no picnic!
Hand me just one match please!
