As an Eagle Scout, I learned to always try to be prepared for emergencies, whether going camping or just having the right emergency kit available for taking a trip. With winter weather coming soon I have begun gathering items for our vehicles. Along with the standard items , first aid kit, water, tools, etc, I will be including a pack of wriggly's chewing gum and a 4 pack of AA batteries. Why, to start a fire. I happened to see this online and tried it.. it really works. Warning, don't use anything stronger or you will get quite a shock.
