The Old Man Lectures on Campfires

Yep, I'm a Boy Scout. Actually, an Eagle Scout, Order of the Arrow and God & Country award holder. A regular Dudley Do-right.

That's why I was surprised by this article, where the federal government is seeking $14 million for a fire caused by unsupervised Boy Scouts, left alone overnight. They started fires to keep warm (go figure), but the fires smoldered after they left and caused a fire that burned 14,000 acres in rural Utah.

That's not how we did it. We were taught to douse campfires with water.

They must be teaching it differently now. Maybe it's the new math.
