#1066 – Combusted

There is something very mesmerizing about a campfire. It evolves as it consumes the wood you feed it. It’s also great for s’mores and melting coins. I always let the coins go too long and lose them in the ashes. I need to invest in a professional campfire coin melting apparatus.

    You can melt coins in a camp fire?

    You can melt carbon steel in the campfires I have helped build. Needless to say a good stone firepit is necessary.

    I put soapstone in MY campfires. Keeps people from filching my s’mores.
    (Soapstone collects water in cracks… When hot enough, it comes apart in stone-fragments and steam explosions. It’s fun!)
    (Yes, I have scars. Why do you ask?)

    @Ray A.,
    Or a shot mold.
    Yanno, the kind of mold mountain men would use to melt led into bullets for their flintlocks. They’re cheap. And fun.*

    @baughbe,
    I never really thought of the Bessemer process as a campfire before. But if you’re ambitious enough… 😀

    *Noting my ideas of fun, you may wish to bring safety gear on your camping trip…

    Fires are also good for destroying old bills, bank statements and tax documents.
    And steak cooked over an open fire is so good that I was about ready to violate the fire ban to have one. (With that being said, it’s only good if you like it crispy outside and almost raw inside. It’s hard to get fine temperature control with a fire.)

    Biff needs to invest in waterproof matches

    this reminds me of a sponge bob episode. Where sponge bob asks Patrick, after there miles away from civilization and successfully made a camp fire.

    “Hey Patrick how the fire burn underwater?”

    Then the fire fizzles out.

    the fires ive built have been hot enough and big enough that we burned a entire telephone pole.. yea middle of the summer we built a fire that was 16 feet tall and if you sat any closer then 20ft away for more then a minute you got a 1st degree burn.

  14. MaskedMan says:

    @dartigen,
    IRT steak, speak for yourself. It just requires some practice to get that fine control. And the practice is rewarded with steak! Mind you, if the steak came from MY campfire, you might wish to check it for stone fragments before taking that first bite…
    😀

    campfires are good for other stuff, too. I was once hanging around a campfire that flattened a glass bottle in minutes, but we tossed in an Oreo, and after half an hour, you could still read ‘Oreo’

    Ah….brings me back to my days in the Boy Scouts. We did some pretty crazy cooking…best damned fettuccine you’ve ever tasted, guaranteed. I mean, dang, we beat the high-class italian restaurants at it.

    After a few incidents involving bears and the old spice man (youtube), we started carrying fire extinguishers. Industrial grade.

  17. Alakar Voidus says:

    Ah, fire…Biff needs industrial strength matches.

    “Biff learns why his amphibian ancestors never went camping.”

    reference to the comic titled “oxygen.” too lazy to post link.

    Admiral, where do you think my massive fire story spawned from, scouting.
