I hope I was clear in that in no way were my comments intended to be critical of the Diamondhead activity.
They are just comments about someone (me) doing things I should have known not to do.

It must have been a sight to behold , but certainly not a unique situation. At Diamondhead the fire extinguishers are spotted around all tracks and the program safety page urges all steamers to be aware of their location. Water bottles for alcohol fires are at each track as well , and the number of times that they are used is significant. A fire blanket is also placed in the center of the large track in the event that things look as if they might be out of control. It all lends to the charm of the hobby - a pastime that is expensive,challenging , and somewhat dangerous.
