[at-l] Re: Lighters

Admittedly, I never weighed my lighters but a couple quick comments:

* I've seen a lot of people underestimate the life of a lighter.  All I 
ever used mine for was lighting my stove and _once_ burning the end of a 
cord.  I carried the same two from Springer to Katahdin and never used 
one of them.

* I don't use a lighter except when backpacking, so the "child-proof" 
features can throw me for a loop.  When I bought my lighters, I had the 
salesclerk show me how to use them.  It seemed silly to ask, but better 
to find out in the store than in the woods.
