Fires

A couple of years ago, a friend and I went to a North Carolina beach to camp at seaside. It was actually a park (few NC beaches allow you to camp on them).  They had very strict regulations on the campfires. You had to make it in a special metal container set in the ground. And you had to remove all evidence that you ever had a fire when you left. This meant the wood, ashes and the metal container you came with. We thought it was a little over kill at the time, even though we understood the intent was to protect the environment.

Here at camp we make campfires once a week right on the beach. It’s a pretty cool deal. The Black Sea washes up lots of brush to burn. So when we go down to the Sea for the second time after lunch, I collect wood and prepare it for lighting later that night.

Limbo!

Limbo!

There are ZERO regulations on the size, maintenance, or safety of the fires. The second one I made, the Georgians said it was too small. So they proceeded to drag out logs from the woods and made a bonfire! …Georgians.
