When Dynamite ages it sweats, and it sweats Nitro Glycerin, making it VERY unstable to even handle.
I've cooked C-Rats and MRE's using pieces of C-4, just remember NOT to stamp it out with your foot.
Most explosives burn really well in small quantities, regardless of the weather, and heat up and boil water real quick.
I'm curious as what the explosive was as well, but being that he only lost a hand I'm thinking NOT C-4 or Dynamite, or TNT as even a single stick, or a 1/4 lb of C-4 would have killed him, or at least done a LOT more damage than just lose a hand.
Maybe a type of firecracker intended to scare away bears??
