    The Warmth, the Atmosphere, the Friends

    I love a campfire.  Typically once a week during good weather, my friends and I will usually have a fire, some conversation, and a few beers.  Of course we could do this without a fire, but just sitting around a nice warm crackling fire, enjoying the time, your friends...

    Sitting Around a Campfire Is the Absolute Best...

    you can really get to know people around a campfire.  no one's gonna pretend to be what they're not.  they can be just people - that's good enough. i've been sitting around campfires for years (since '90), with no real plans to stop anytime soon.  usually (99.9...

    Stirring The Senses

    A good campfire has something for all of your senses to revel in: the heat, the beauty of the flames, the sound of popping/crackling wood, the smell of wood and fire. Taste.... now that is another story. I can not in good faith recommend licking a burning log, but... a campfire...

    Yup^^

    I love campfires with my friends. Sometimes when we have free time between classes at school, we go to some place where no one comes and we make a fire there. In the middle of the day, yeah. It doesn't spoil the fun though. The hardest part is probably getting the fire to...

    I Know My Other Story Isnt What You Were Wanting To Here, But I Have Happier Stories

    My goal is to RV full time, I decided this recently when I realized how much I really love being in nature.  The campfire (controlled) makes me more excited than anyother aspect of the planned full time experience.  There is nothing to compare to staring into a fire, as...

    Extremely Gratifying

    My wife and I love to relax by a fire in our back yard.  Alright, so it's not really a "camp" fire.  But we still enjoy it.  What is even more enjoyable is watching what we are burning go up in flames.  I particularly love watching the small burning embers ride the heat wave...

    The Peace Of A Campfire

    There is just something very relaxing about a good campfire. I love the smell and the crackling.  I love sitting outside surrounded by nature. There are some tame chipmunks that come for peanuts and even climb into my hand.

    By the Flickering Firelight

    I guess I never learned to appreciate a nice fire until later in life.  Most of my first experiences with campfires was at parties, and the fire wasn't really the main attraction. But then, years later, I found out what I had been missing all that time.  To just sit...

    A Fire In the Night!

    I love a brightly burning campfire in the night.The soft embers glowing.The warm heat from the flames.And then roasting wieners and marshmallows.Olny thing is,we have a burning ban on right now because it is so dry right now.So I will have to wait for a bit.

    Story Time
