You can't understand that? Okay, well then I probably can't explain it to you.
(Wait! I know. You're going to talk about how dangerous propane
is. Heard it all before. Basically it boils down to this: Propane
can be handled perfectly safely if you take a few basic, well-documented precautions. If you can't do that then, definitely, stick to wood.)
I don't think his comment has anything to do with which fuel is better or safer. Based on past threads, I don't believe he can afford propane so he makes due with what he can get for free (scrap wood and coconut husks) even though they are less safe and much more of a hassle to cook with. Likewise with motoring, I don't think he has a functioning engine
so he justifies it by claims it's better not to have one.
