    Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the term “hottie”. (don’t shoot Joe, I meant it in a nice way ;-)

    Don’t worry about me. I figure Xenia and her fiancĂ© can take of things as needed. I just point them in the right direction.

    :-)

    How far ahead can that stuff be mixed with out it settling out again?

    Oh, and just to ad the gratuitous comment, I’m surprised that the bags didn’t spontaneously combust…

    jist givin’ you some cover, Ride.

    It’s not a matter of “settling out”. I’m not sure of the exact mechanism but the last time we did storage tests the sensitivity had significantly decreased within one week. After month it is essentially only good for starting fires.

    It’s possible that we didn’t have it sealed well enough and the ethylene glycol evaporated but I don’t know for certain.

    Always wondered about that in regards to the Murrey Building explosion. Everything I had ever read pretty much said that the “hotter” you make AnFO the quicker it goes bad. Thanks.
