These types of gadgets aren't too expensive, like $7-$12, and I'm thinking about buying one.. I'm prone to buying camping gadgets, so I probably shouldn't, but thought I'd ask... Normally I huff and puff, and it's suited me well so far, but maybe one of these extendable/retractible contraptions might turbo-charge getting my kindling going, especially if it's wet.

Might also save me from burning off my eyebrows if there's a flash from exploding tree sap in a loose pinecone or something- Had one or two close calls.

Watched a couple of youtube videos, but I'm still not sure it's even worth it.

Anyone ever used one of these?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
