I harvested a nice 9 point buck in PA in my younger days. After Thanksgiving he was brought to the living room and very red lipstick put on his nose. Kept many kids away...Ö and their parents for a more pleasant holiday.

Camping isn't camping without a campfire. If campfires bother you as an RV'er you might want to try going on cruise or something as a hobby. I'm going to burn a campfire!!

90 last night, I made a small fire to cook dinner and then went to bed with my wife and cat in the air conditioned rv.

We were surrounded by campers of all sorts. Most had fires all evening and appeared to be having the time of their life. Good for them.

This morning, the humidity is gone and it's a cool 62 degrees. Perfect weather for bacon and eggs on a fire.

The only problem is the couple sites that have used several gallons of lighter fluid or kerosene and while I enjoy the smell of a good fire the kerosene smell has got to go.

I think I'll have a seminar on how to start a fire. It would be helpful if the campground wasn't selling wet wood.

Camping includes campfires.

Unfortunately, it does not include a campfire training session and license to operate campfires. Or the common sense not to build a *bonfire* with *green* wood soaked in lighter fluid, instead of a campfire.

Really?

Complaining about campfires at a campground.....while camping? Really? Maybe you should change your hobby to knitting or macromay. I’ll build a campfire if its 100 outside, its never to hot for s’mores. As my dad says....some people would complain if you hung them with a new rope...lol

I too have asthma and campfires force me inside instead of enjoying the outdoors that we LOVE and came to enjoy. I would never impose on anyone to stop them from having fires.
However, having said that it seems to me that Gumpster808 would go out of his way to make someone ill and take pleasure in it. Maybe, just maybe we want to stay and enjoy the same places YOU enjoy. I truly hope you can see fit to understand that some of us don't enjoy the health you and your family do. That we may only have limited time to see the sights you would deprive us of because you want to light off a smoker to annoy an ill person. Nice guy!

Murphy's Law, where you place your chair the smoke will go to you. If you stay in a campground where fires are permitted and do not like them, your neighbor will start one and it will find you.

Yes yes yes...you've all said 'go somewhere else.' You just don't get it...why is it your only answer is for folks like me to go somewhere else? I like the same places as you do. I said before, I would never impose on anyone, but would it hurt you to consider that some people, who like the same places as you do, don't have the health to sit in smoke all the time. Just think about it...please?
