#14 would be 1/4 cup salt, not 14 cups of salt
#26 would probably be closer to 8 or 9 eggs, definitely not 89 eggs
Rule #1 for any of this is to try it out BEFORE you go camping. Some of it sounds like Bull Shark.
#39 - only works with "strike anywhere" matches with the different color tips. Definitely won't work with the ones shown.
