Fire - a brightly lit plasma that is produced from a chemical reaction, typically with some sort of carbon based material like wood or alcohol.

Fire has many uses for a hiker. It can be used to heat food (fire is often quite hot), it can be used to warm a cold hiker on a cold day (did I mention fire was hot), and it can be used to consume some forms of trash so the hiker does not have to carry it.

Fire, because of it's heat, can be quite dangerous and is not meant for internal use, and should only be used externally at a distance or with proper protective gear - which is not normally carried by a hiker because of weight constraints.

you can also use it to dry wet socks and to make your boots kinda curl up or to burn a hole in your sleeping bag!

Fire building is becoming a lost art. Anyone hitting the trail should be good at it. Having my grandson read "to build a fire" by Jack London. I think it is one of our most important survival skills.

I don't build fires unless a woman makes me do it.

But when you bring steak and corn on the cob an alcohol stove won't quite cut it.

Sorry, I meant to write Tabasco Sauce. Coming from Texas, I hear Tobasco when I see Tabasco.

Yeah, that's the stuff all the military branches included on every table and food ration to pacify the minorities after the race riots of 1965.

I've had this in my fridge for 20 years and I'm only 1/3 through it.

When they say spread your cheeks I get in trouble. I assume they mean I should smile.

Thank god I don't have to listen to that shit. We're leaving for camping at Dolly Copp...near the White Mountains. Our anniversary is the 18th. That's that same day as Pat's exes birthday, I bought this house and probably more. Pat's son and grand daughters will be there. Life is good. Somebody else will have to translate into something for some of you to understand. I'm an American by god and don't need no stinken bi-stuff.

Ese es el mismo día como exes cumpleaños de Pat , me he comprado esta casa y probablemente más. Hijo y nietas de Pat estarán allí. La vida es buena. Alguien tendrá que traducirse en algo para algunos de ustedes de entender. Soy estadounidense por Dios y no necesito ningún bi - materia stinken .
