c4 will burn will not explode in a fire thats what i was told
You heard that right.
Like Mudd says,
Dry small kindling or scrap splits(softwood is easier to light) on top of newspapers then larger , then larger pieces.
Fire in no time.
I even showed this Boy Scout method to my wife and now she's a fire Queen.
Knowing how to start a fire can also be a matter of life and death, like swimming or making shelter.
When I'm not using "The Force" to will the fire into action I use flint & steel, fire pistol, friction, parabolic lenses, electric arc or nuclear fusion to light my fires.
I use a torch at the house because butane lighters are expensive and dealing with refillable are a PITA. I keep refillable lighters for the wife and her candles. I want a real tool, WHOOOF, there, FIRE, scratch myself and grunt...
I'm starting to like you more Steve .
!!!!"just don't try to snuff it out while in flame with your foot or you will/maybe walking limp or on one leg" !!! lol
I feed my old lady 2 cans of Dollar Store 58 cent beans a day during the heating season. We place her butt near the air intakes. . . One kid takes a long fireplace match and the other kid tickles her stomach. . . It's been working for years.
F.Y.I. No lettuce or melons 8 hours before lighting.
I thought this issue was settled on how to keep the fire burning bright. Since I do not have an Old Lady like wood has the only thing that can be done is to keep a few old tires burning. If you run out of wood you can just shovel some black stuff into the stove so the Old Lady will not be disturbed. Thanks
just back a jet engine to the door of the wood burner..problem solved....
I new the honey moon was over when my wife farted in front of me, took 18 years. Then it was 8 years of trying to get her to stop. LOL
Yes. All fires are started with the green LP bottles and a trigger ignited torch head on top. Works great.
Only in my smoker I use propane. The house I use paper and cardboard.
Never. That is absurd.
Kerosene soaked rag works
Jeez you guys come up with some good responses.
I use the scrap pieces that comes from splitting wood followed up with a dash of diesel and have an easy hassle free fire. I just light it and forget it.
