I Like To Feel The Heat On My Face.

I can sit and stare at the flames of a campfire all night. I like to poke the fire around with a stick and keep everything burning. A small steady fire is perfect. You can get close and stay warm while you talk with your campmate about whatever comes up. Camping and campfires are relaxing...

Right place at the right time I guess ;)

You're reminding me of the time I was heading for a camp ground outside of Holt, Florida. I had the camping gear in the back of the truck, when I stopped on the outskirts of Bagdad, Florida by the city limits sign.<br /><br /><br />
"I want your picture by that sign," I explained to the gal that was with me. "You can say you've been to Bagdad." <br /><br /><br />
While she was posing, a guy came out of his driveway and said "You going camping? You want some firewood?"<br /><br /> He gave us a <b>truckload</b> of over seasoned dry oak stove wood. <br /><br /><br />
We spent the next four days with a bonfire, giving away firewood to other people in the campgrounds.

Gotta collect some more wood, then we're in business!

Put on s'more logs, Mr. Source.<br />
I love me some big fires!

I suppose they do...

Remember: forest fires prevent bears.

No water, more wood!

Many a camp fire companion think if they've drank the fire water, they need to water the fire.

You have to talk to it, and ask it to blow the other way ;)

Rule of thumb: no matter which the wind blows when you <b>start</b> the campfire fire, it will change so the smoke will blow in your face.
