Re: Propane real vs. best practices

Thanks BP. I'd love to see similar data for back in the day when pressure alcohol were common.

I used one for years with zero problems. But I come from a camping background where these types of stoves are common. I learned at an early age never to turn my back on one, or leave it unattended.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

I know this has been shared several times before, but it's worth watching. And fun to watch, since there's an explosion at the end

When Yachting Monthly tried to blow up their "Crash Test Boat" with a propane explosion they had a difficult of a time getting it to ignite.

A gas explosion is what's called a low probability/high impact event.
