Wow, Jiffy Pop – whodda thunkit?

Meeting other burn survivors, and hearing stories from people who have been burned, I’ve become acutely aware of how many things pose danger. I guess anything that deals with a flame is potentially trouble. It won’t stop me from carrying a stove on backpacking trips (although I’ve been going stoveless on solo summer trips since well before the fire.

I did meet someone who was badly burned sleeping about 10 feet from a camp fire after a spark ignited his bag. He lost most of his feet. I don’t want to be grim, but maybe that has relevance to backpackers.
