I 've wondered how those electronic lighters work, and after seeing a survival show on TV where a guy purposely broke a light bulb and used it in the flashlight to start a fire with LEDs that ain't gonna work.Great story again, Poppy! Thanks for sharing it.
I've never been a boy scout, guess I'm more of a loner as I enjoy the kind of activities they undertake bit I'd rather do them by myself
Re: starting a fire, it's one of the 10 essentials I always carry, so I have accelerant, tinder and security matches and a lighter in my backpack.
Guess Police would find it funny were they to frisk me someday... to say nothing of the shovel I carry right by the passenger seat of my pickup truck, as it has no trunk...
