Since you have never heard of this before, here is the way I was taught to
Have each scout and leader get a canister to keep ashes in. Each of them
are to keep a logbook of the loaction and date of each campfire that the
ashes are from. This provides a historical trail for the ashes. Whenever
you build a new file, pour your ashes into the fire and when it is out
everyone gets a canister of ashes to mix in their next fire. One person
(I can't remember his name) has campfire ashes that date back to 1933.
Hope this helps.
