Haha. I'm with you. We make such gnarly fires in the desert that you can't get near them. I had myself a 6' fire poker made. The black smith at the Ponderosa at Lake Tahoe made it for me way back when. One of my prize possessions!

Re: post up your camping pics

^^^yup^^^
"accidently" dropped a 80 foot fir into our fire once.....
just got back from our abbreviated holidays, was'nt quite what i was hoping for, but i'll take any day that's not at work....and we had zero problems, nothing with the truck, quads, or boat, just mega-bugs!
really enjoyed going to Mehatl Creek last yr, so for once we did a repeat, but we went in further this time, very remote area, saw nobody or anything except for a floatplane, which i'll come back to later.

Re: post up your camping pics

with all the wildfires burning right now, there is a complete fire ban on, but we do have the ban legal "campfire" the wifey bought. i will admit, it is ok, 'specially if there is a ban on. no finding and chopping wood, dont have to feed it, and best of all for wife, no smoke (her and smoke do NOT get along...lol)
so maintanence free i actually passed out in my camp chair all night, the first nite. our fake fire
