When I wrote “Guerrilla Camping 101.5 Burn Baby Burn”, I mentioned a fast way to get a fire started in the woods. The method was taught to me by an ex-con who said they would use these devices, known as baby bunsons to heat up food in their cells. All you need is a few few of toilet paper, which you wrap tightly around your hand, then fold the edges in. Put it in place of the tinder beneath your kindling and light. Voila, instant campfire.
Alex over at GNN liked the notion, especially when I said, “If you don;t carry toilet paper, you are a savage and can probably light fires with a hard gaze…” and produced a funny, if highly bizarre comic called Toilet Paper Donut.
