Camping with my wife after a rainstorm, i was gathering wood for a fire when I ran across another bunch of older gentlemen, sitting around a NON-lit cmpfire. I asked them If I could use a large log just outside of their site. They laughed and told me that they had tried to burn that soaking wet tree trunk for 2 days, with no luck. I told them that I could have this log up and burning within 10 minutes of lighting it.
they laughed and bet me $50.00 that I COULD NOT get and keep it lit.They stipulated that I couldnot use gasoline, I agreed.
I took the bet and dragged the item back to my campsite.
I grabbed a tube of PL400 from my truck and slathered the whole tube on the log.
It went up instantly and stayed lit all night long.
And I was $50.00 richer!
Sub Floor adhesive is an EXCELLENT fire starter even for wet items.
