Blasted double post.

Okay, I wonder if the pair will come out with a public statement for Castanet about what went wrong for them and how to correct it. For those of us dying of curiosity of course.

Way harder to build fire with snow on the ground...
Then, a knife and hatchet will be a great help... for making firestarter and kindling.. small saw good idea too.
The one on a Swiss army knife should be good an branches to about 3/4 -inch.. just don't break it. .
I'd like to help You OUT,
Which way did You come in??

Norma, on the first day you would hate me and you would fear the mountain we were stepping on. On the 3rd day, the mountain would fear you as you would be a different person with a new found confidence. Coming back into town you would be thinking to yourself " I don't need this place".
As long as I can still wear skinny jeans, flannel jacket and keep a cool looking beard I am in! Oh and I don't like eatting outdoors, so maybe we just need to bring a phone with skipTheDish app. Then I am in too!

Maybe you haven't thought this out Alien Soldier, when Skip the Dishes delivers, you'd still need a tent or cabin. Maybe OT can throw in Lean-To instructions for you eat in the lean-to? Then you won't be so "outdoors". Or Skip the Dishes can deliver a tent for the group?

Before this gets tidied up
I survived 2 months in the Boreno jungle with only an eyeliner and a lipgloss

Wait a sec, if you're Cat Eye, then OT is Big Bear.

Red Green's good friend Bill made a video on how to build a fire.


Whenever I head into Kelowna next, I can pack along a percolator, if you care to try making a fire and brewing some coffee on it.

But I'm outside, I thought that was the whole point of outdoors.

Alien Soldier, you literally said you don't like eating outdoors. What do you do at a BBQ? or a picnic? I'm trying to get OT to throw building an lean-to into his 3 day course just for you to eat indoors. :biggrin:

sometimes when a thread goes a bit off topic it becomes the best thread :)

I'd love to know how the pair are doing, are they reading this thread and LTAO's. If they are, OT still has room on his sign up sheet, I'm sure.

Dear Old Trucker,
Do you empty one or both your trucks fuel tanks onto the burn pile?
I have only been using the one side, but am not getting the fireball I am hoping for :135:
