Brandy, more than likely, it was better that she did not go camping with you, campfire or not, as you wrote: "She was very excited but I know she has grand ideas with little follow thru (more of a 4 star hotel kinda gal)." Not many campfires in 4 star hotels. If we give the Devil a little slack, perhaps he used building a fire as a way to help you out of a not to cool of a camping experence. No! That would be too much slack. Too bad it did not fall
together, the kids would have had fun, as would the two of you. Maybe, he just didn't like the idea of a "Girls Night Out"? Or he was afraid his kids would fall
into the fire? Whatever, we all found out some different ways of fire starting. I like the dryer lint and egg carton and p wax the best. If that is too slow for you, soak the carton sections in gasoline before lighting
it. No, don't do that. I was joking. I know, for a xmas present give the guy a carton of wax covered lint.
I also liked the story/illustration of Walter, the Volvo and cheating husband. I may need to start reading the joke section sometimes.
Moral of the whole result of the thread, be careful of how we title
our posts or read the whole post before we answer them.
I have given it some thought, you can rub a stick together if you have a fairly long, flexible stick. However, I wouldn't expect getting a fire going with it. To damp if it is that flexible.
