We thought we could fool the boys into thinking the lantern was the campfire but they didn’t fall for it. Actually, Brock was in the process of trying to light up our little fire. As dry as the whole land is at this time of year, we feel pretty fortunate that we didn’t burn down the neighboring states. As you know, it only takes a spark to get a fire….
Using the camera flash was a much better idea. Here you’ll notice that Brock was trying to reflect the lantern light off of that large shiny object in order to demonstrate how to start a fire, as was done centuries ago by the local indigenous tribe called the Baldtecas. In the end, he gave up and used a match just like the local indigenous tribes do today.
You didn’t know you were going to get a Mexican history report in this post, did you? That’s OK though because you didn’t.
