Those wildfires are horrible. You think of them Out west with not much thought. Never thought of how much they impact everything and disrupt lives. I'm in Athens, GA, about 2.5 hrs south of the GA/NC state line, and we have smelled smoke down here constantly for over a week. Really feel for those people. If this is arson, I hope the catch the asshats starting the fires.

That being said, we just bought our first travel trailer this week. I want to take it out next weekend, if it's not freezing. Does anyone know a resource or map to show how far the burn bans reach? I want a campfire the first time we take our travel trailer out.

Only once have we gone out and had a fire ban. Nice to sit around a fire and roast hot dogs and marshmallows.

We ended up heading to Gatlinburg 23-27 November. We departed on a Sunday, and the next day it was on fire. The area was under a fire ban already. Best bet is to just call whatever park you are going to be staying at and ask them what their fire situation is.

We went to Nashville TN for Thanksgiving, checked in on Thanksgiving day and nothing was open, no checkin, no campstore, so we went on to our site and set up. Got everything ready and started up our campfire. A few minutes later we heard a knock on the door and another camper came over and said they had a burn ban on yet there were no signs up anywhere. As soon as I went to put it out a Park Ranger came speeding up, I told him I just heard and that there where no signs up anywhere. He understood as I was throwing water on the fire. It was a bummer cause we do most of our cooking on the campfire.

With all of the bans and warnings this fall, why would anyone start a fire without finding out if it was allowed? I don't get some people.

Well, a complete burn ban is a pretty rare occurrence here in the South East. Thankfully it has been lifted in Alabama.
