    As a geology and physics major,

    there's nothing i love more than sitting around the fire drinking beer and talking about the scientific processes of the world with some friends and classmates.

    Apparently my phone prefers vampires to

    campfires. Epic autocorrect fail!

    It's dark. Only the fire is burning in the

    middle of the circle. The circle of your friends (and you, of course). Someone is playing everyones favorite songs on a guitar and you sing, dance and laugh with your friends. Maybe kissing if you have a boy-/girlfriend. That's life. That's joy, happiness.

    It has been awhile since I went camping

    but there is something about sitting next to a roaring campfire looking at the clear sky and the millions of stars you can't see cause of light pollution in the big city.

    Love Camp Fires

    We have a leak somewhere in our gas line so there is no gas to cook with and I came home from work one night and my husband had a camp fire going. We set out under the stars and watched the fire burning and roasted hot dogs over the fire.  It was so nice and romantic...

    I've always been the cowgirl type.

    I was raised on a farm, worked everyday of my life so far! My family always has this big bonfire the first day of fall! Me and my brother always go in the back yard and make a fire almost every night, it's just something we bond over!

    I've just been told everyone's going camping

    and they want to stay at mine. Haha, no. I love camping I guess, but I'd wanna do it somewhere not at a house because then you can make camp fires and be loud if you want... :/ Hmmmm. Our last camp out was pretty fun though...

    Especially when it is cold outside

    and the warmth of the fire draws us in, gets rid of the chill, warms us up, with a few good friends, some hotdogs and s'mores :)

    I remember life before all the idiots polluted

    the forests, and started too many forest fires causing so many restrictions that you can't just go out and have a camp fire anymore. :(

    How long have we sat by the camp fire and told many a tale of hunting and battles.The shadows of light play in the distant of echo’s as the dream time comes closer.I look across at my brother and wonder if he will return from the battle across the river. The hands of sleep...
