We had a hillside full of waist high weeds behind our house. They were so ugly, so I got a burn permit and we pulled them up and piled them high. I was going to show Curtis my mad fire making skills. After I went through about 6 matches with no success he got it started with one! After several hours of gathering weeds and junk wood from the woods behind our house (stuff people has hauled back there and left), we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. Then I started to fade and Curtis kept going. He said it was actually kind of fun for him. It kept burning into the evening without incident. Now we just need to try to keep the weeds from going back somehow.
