Shucks! Now you know about my hair-powdering trick to make me look like a gray haired ol' lady! I guess I can't pull your ears!

I agree with the majority that a camp trip isn't a camp trip without a small fire, even if you're only looking at the one built next door. When I think I've had my limit of smoke in my lungs, I go to my 'home' and go to bed, just like people should do when they've had their limit of alcohol. :?

The thing that concerns me is when one's camping neighbors build a huge fire and proceed to chug one beer after another. This is especially a concern when the wind is so strong one's tent wants to fly away. (It happened!) Unfortunately, when the neighbors happen to be eight staggering army privates in combat uniforms, everybody just keeps quiet and says their prayers. If that ever happens again, I hope my hair is a little grayer (Maybe I'll powder it!) so I can wag my finger at them and pinch an earlobe or two! :lol:


You may want to avoid LCG4 -- well, actually, most SouthCentral gatherings -- or any gathering with Caseydog, WarPony or Spinnernut on the attendee list. :o

CD :lol:

We throw a couple of logs in the barbecue and plead ignorance if anybody complains.
You can`t have a camp site without a fire in my oppinion.


I've been to Yorkshire three times. It seems that it rains a lot and everything is green. Your driest month is like the wettest month in North Texas. Why do they ban campfires?

CD :thinking:


It`s the old liability thing rearing its ugly head again. Most camping pitches here are 20 x 20 feet and the owners and or the health and safety executives (spoil sports) are afraid of stray sparks setting fire to somebodies £25k twin axle caravan. :twisted:

Next time you find yourself over here feel free to look me up. I will sort you out with a REAL pint of proper Yorkshire bitter :D
