My solution for a campfire is a pocket stove. I burn twigs and kiln-dried kindling sticks. Gives me enough campfire for ambiance and making s'mores.

Camped at Barkcamp State Park over the 4th of July weekend - very family oriented site so a lot of little kids. Had a some campers screaming/threatening each other a few campsites over from us on Saturday night. Blue and red flashing lights soon appeared. Kudos to the camp host who did not let it be a prolonged issue and called authorities to deal with it.

Late night stories, using the glow and flicker of the fire to highlight the menacing gestures in the real scary parts; the glow of the faces of children, the fire making the whites of their wide eyes glisten pinkly just before the horrifying finish; poking it with a stick and watching the last tiny embers twinkle like stars; the morning with the mixing smells and sounds of a campfire and an old percolator, crackling and bubbling; staring at the fire, having thoughts of everything or nothing as the fire performs its hypnotic dance.....

BTW, you can camp beside us any time you want!

If (hopefully) you do park next to the DV's please let us know when the stories start. My favorite part of growing up and camping.

It is one of the grandest things. Camping is the perfect venue for a yarn, a tall tale, a fable, or just a well-crafted lie.
My time in BC will come, one day!

A bucket list want is to be seated around a campfire with the likes of, Les, Slick1, Dunner, Wayne and SeaJay. There would be a whole whack of other names on this list if I could remember them all. Can you imagine the cash flow from the sale of all the BS spilled in that one spot?

Heaven.

Added to my bucket.
I'm guessing the logistics for the supporting infrastructure must be huge: firewood, beverages, firewood, lawn chairs, firewood....

And if after a week or so the conversation slowed - you could pull up thread killer and read from the beginning. Should trigger forgotten memories!

I have a new one for our list. Smoker's hack.

We just camped for 8 days in our cg and 2 sites over there was an older couple and the lady was a chain smoker. She hacked and coughed from the moment she got up until she went to bed. The only silence was the few seconds while she shoved the next cigarette into her face.... It was so flippin' loud and annoying. Louder than any screaming kids or diesels driving past. In fact, louder than the July 4th fireworks. If the cg hadn't been full, we would have moved elsewhere.

Maybe I should have made a noise complaint at the office?? (Being facetious) But, if it were a dog making that racket, we could have called in animal control and had it taken away.

Sorry, but I just don't understand smoking and why anyone would want to do that to their bodies. What a horrible way to end the remaining days of your life.

We were at out favorite campground over the 4th. Type C comes in across from us, followed by a pickup truck. About and hour later two more cars come in. The set up two tents. Campground limits are one RV, one tent and 6 people. I knew there were too many people and tents but it's not my place to police that. Turns out there were 15 people and they had planned to stay a couple nights. The manager came and kicked the "extra's" out and told them not to return and if she got one call about rowdy behavior the rest were out of there with no refunds. We didn't hear a word out of them!!
