I’ve noticed recently that alot of my friends have either been going camping or have been thinking about doing it!
Well, Good news!! You came to the right place!! You see? I was an actual Boy Scout!! That’s right!! "Be Prepared" was my motto!! And still is….. usually…! But whatever!! I come from a long line of outdoorsmen and adventuers!! You’ve heard of Daniel Boone???? Davey Crockett???? Lewis and Clark???? Well, so have I!!!!!
So here are a few tips for starting a fire on your next camping trip. And remember, ‘Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires’ (Smokey)
Building a campfire is easy, just follow these sixteen steps (in order):
Split dead limb into fragments and shave one fragment into slivers.
Bandage left thumb.
Chop other fragments into smaller fragments.
Bandage left foot.
Make structure of slivers (include those embedded in hand).
Repeat "a Scout is cheerful" and light match.
Apply match to slivers, add wood fragments, and blow gently into base of fire.
Apply burn ointment to nose.
When fire is burning, collect more wood.
Upon discovering that fire has gone out while out searching for
more wood, soak wood from can labeled "kerosene."
Treat face and arms for second-degree burns.
Relabel can to read "gasoline."
When fire is burning well, add all remaining firewood.
When thunder storm has passed, repeat above steps.
I hope these few tips help!
Yeah, yeah… Look out when Bob has been camping!!!!
