    It's all good.
    True statement....anyone heard from Doobage lately? Haven't seen him in a year...

Turns out it had been raining the week before and no one in the camp except me had fire. You'd be amazed at the gifts people bear just to hang at the only fire.
    We discovered that at the Scottish campout I described in another thread. People actually ran back to their campsites in the rain to bring us adult beverages and dried sausages. All because we had the big fire going.

    I like the duralog idea. I'm going to adopt that. I've always brought along firestarters. http://www.northlineexpress.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=5RU-50B
    and a couple railroad flares for wet wood.

    chili will do the same thing!

    Gotta have fire!!

    Most of the campgounds we stay at will have firewood for sale,but we have use the dura flame logs.3 logs will make a nice fire for about two hours.You can stretch that out if you want to be a little more conservative.
    My wife found a small home made portable propane fire pit some guy was selling at a Goldwing rally.
    It's an old cast aluminum pot fitted with a small propane nozzle in the bottom,filled with some metallic substance that looks like coarse sand,and a fitted lid with a screw on handle that holds the lid on for storage.It's usually tucked away in the trailer,and we've used it a couple times when there was no other option

    My buddy Brian believes it ain't a campfire unless the space shuttle can see it.
