Haaa! Yeah my Grandpa showed me how to do it but I was too young to remember much. Ol Joe there in Galena, KS said when they came out with a starter for those old Model T's & A's it cost $40 when the whole car was $500. But he said it was the best $40 you could ever spend. What an interesting guy.

You will let anybody crash your yard? That hurt's!

Matt gets cranky until he has had a few. Then he is lit and cranky.

And I would use one to, if I lived in NWA...

Seriously though, this looks like a terrific idea, particularly when out on the trail.
