Comment: Little Miss Redhead - She's sure to ignite something

Suggest the long matches rather than the ordinary size - just makes the paper-lighting task a bit easier and less distasteful but I must say Mudripper's suggestion of a pocket butane torch sounds excellent!

Megan & Kevin,

As you may have noticed the comment you submitted did not work 100% right. I am currently working on this system. I have correctly linked this comment to the blog. There are still some issues to be addressed in terms of notifications to the blog owners but this is being fixed right now also.

Have a good one.

I'll second the butane torch or BBQ Lighter. The advantage of the BBQ lighter is that you don't have to bend down as far and less chance of burnt fingers. Disadvantage of the BBQ lighter is they don't like wind whereas the torch will operate in wind and the flame will stay lit.

Also available in camping stores are the long burn, water & wind proof matches, bit expensive but very good.

As an aside who used to collect the match box labels?

cheers

What was the name of those matches with the extra long head?
Fusies or something like that?

Them and a bit of "woof wood" got the old campfire going even if things were a bit damp.

A good idea in a past thread, not my idea, was a squeeze bottle of metho, as an aid for successfully burning the confetti. Suppose you could choose your own accelerant. :-)

Heck,

After digging the hole and emptying the contents of our Porta Potti into it, I'm buggered if I can get anything to ignite.

What am I doing wrong?

Probably not enough vegetables in your diet. Apparently the decaying vegetable matter helps in the production of natural gas (methane).

I've "bean" told that the baked variety helps too.

A bit of Peri Peri might help you ignite the contents, Bill?

Keep a bit of kerosene bush handy, and you don't have any trouble lighting anything up!

Cheers, Ron.
