Now wait just a dang minute, in the Boy Scouts we use Girl Scout Water to start our campfires (It comes in a red metal, one gallon canister with the world "Coleman" written on the side)!

Ha HAAA ! Jim, it looks like you, me and campcollector have our firestarting methods in common !

Soo, to start a fire get out the propane bottle, hook it to your firedancer, turn on and light. Not so hard

Old Backpacking trick: take cotton balls (fake cotton works too, but the real cotton balls are the best), and a tub of Vaseline, get some Vaseline on your fingers and rub it on a cotton ball, one at a time. Stuff the saturated cotton balls in an old 35mm film canister, and stuff the 'strike anywhere' matches in another 35mm canister.

When you want to start a fire, put a couple of these under the kindling and light them, instant fire. They even work with flint and steel if you don't saturate them too much with the vaseline.

For trailer camping though , I go with the propane bottle ! !

You mean I can polish aluminum with a chocolate bar. How many Hershey's would it take to do a 27 footer?

I think some of the standard polish formulas would be more cost-effective, unless you own stock in Hershey Foods.

My camper lives in Pennsylvania, high on a hill.
SORRY......back on topic.....campfires..........banjos burn real good
Yep - bet they do... had an old snare drum once that made a peachy fire ring... mylar & birch smells pretty peculiar burnin' tho'.

Done some B/G with brushes a few times. played off the mando which made for some nice syncopation. Truely isn't anything better sitting around the fire on a cool fall evening playin' some good music...

And when you get done playing, you can use the instruments as kindling...(trying to keep sort of on-topic)

Okay, Steel wool and a 9 volt battery will do. But oil and gas work better....

You can camp next to us anytime, just remember to keep the 9 volts in a different compartment than the steel wool , thats all.
