Matches still work? Nicely done. I too believe.

So what did you leave in the ditch with the 1000kg HE?

Suggestion: when you relace the matches and stuff in your PSK, put a second and third book in your tool kit, back-ups to your back-ups.

Stay safe.

Glad to hear you are in one piece.

The whole reason you carry the stuff is because you never know.

Stay safe. Get home in one piece.

Glad you made it, and were able to keep your wits about you!

So, uh, you need someone to send you some more matches? Using 6 each time, they're not going to last long smile

"Lucky for him he had those matches". . . Fortune favors the lucky, however, "you make your own luck". This is an obvious case of someone making himself very lucky.
