Ummm...I'm not sure about the Hot Damn, but Eddie (TTRGuy) and I tried to cook Gomer's left over Jiffy Pop Popcorn (we had the munchies) over the open fire. :scream: Unfortunately, the popcorn caught on fire! :eek:
Jay's smores and pies came out good though. Thanks Jay.
Timr you didn't learn from our mistakes the first night when we tried to cook hot dogs by hanging them from safety wire over the big camp fire? Only upside to that deal was the built in temp. gauge(my arm) to tell when they were done. I will definitely be bringing some better cooking utensils next year.
Speaking of Pyros... The Friday night fire was started with the help of about half a gallon of gas... you'd think that would have done the trick... Nope.
Don't remember his name... White Pickup... kid with Suzuki, rode a big KDX...
When the flames were dying too quickly, wood too moist... he filled a water bottle with Gas and did his Flame Thrower imitation!!!! Then dropped the partially filled platic bottle of gas into the fire!!!
Hey AJ, we were hungry and beer got the better of our judgement plus it was just too dark to try and find a tree.:)
After our first experience with saftey wire and hot dogs we have perfected the method. We just needed a long enough piece to stretch all the way across the fire and a person to hold it on each side and we would have been all good.
P.S. Ray, you are not allowed to kick the fire off next year unless Okie gets some better insurance!!! I would at least like to go to Dirt Week a few more times before it gets banned due to mass injuries caused by a large inferno with your obssesion for gasoline:)
The final bonfire was started with 4 quarts of Yamalube R2, a quart of lighter fluid and several ounces of Rich's pure MTBE, LOL. Problem was, once all the incredients were on, no one wanted to get close enough to light it :scream:
Pretty funny seeing everyone scatter when we noticed something landing in the fire... Like the plastic bottle full of race gas, Billy was trying to "bust" the fire too :scream: . Good thing all the kids were gone at that point! :eek:
So how well DOES a bonfire run on race gas? Was there any pinging? Does it burn more consistantly? Is it worth spending the money for it? I dunno, I have a friend who knows a guy that sweeps up at the airport and he says that avgas is the better choice. Says it is some potent stuff...(wink, wink:D)
