    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 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...

    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.

    The Heart of Community

    A long time ago, I rented a room in a big old house in Dallas with a half acre for a back yard. There were about nine other people renting there, too. It was a hard time in Dallas, so everyone there was down on their luck. We built a pit...

    Not A Bonfire, Just A Nice Romantic Camp Fire

    Warm enough you keep close to the one next to you but you don't have to shield your face from the heat. Crackling, charring, steaming. Throw another log on the fire. Well, not a log but some stout twigs. Although I remember one time at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois, back...

    I went to this one campground

    once that was owned by some friends of my dad's. One night there was a concert and my dad's friend's band was playing. There was a nice big community camp fire and people were singing along and one couple started dancing and they were very good. It was wonderful...then all the...

    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.

    The bush TV. All can sit around it mutually

    mesmerised in the comfort and proximity of other humans while deep in the privacy of their own thoughts.

    Out in a field truck doors open

    and the radio turned WAY up. A cold chill in the air. A big fire going, good drinks flowing and close friends all laughing and telling stories. I can't imagine a more relaxing and enjoyable night.

    I love the warmth of the fire

    and the glow of the fire on everybody's faces in the dark. Sadly, I've only been to two campfires so far, though. The first time I went, I was pretty young but I enjoyed a lot nevertheless. The second one was more fun than the first but it ended all of a sudden when it began to...

    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.

    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 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. :(
