The bigger...the better! Love campfires! But, you're right about the air quality can get rather poor, when you're in a large campground...I noticed the smoke invertion was really bad at Campground by the Lake, in Lake Tahoe, this last 4th of July.

Unacceptable. "doable" != better.

We expect other campers to do likewise, keeping warm outside is part and parcel of the experience and getting back to basics, waiting for the stars to come into view (they appear after the sun sets and the air becomes chilly) ... to hear the banter from other camps lightens the soul and if the air outside gets smokey, we close our own door, but stay by the fire until quiet time and it's small enough to extinguish.

I guess being considerate depends on which side of the fence you're looking over ... and who you think should be.

Totally Agree!! (I left out the part about helping others get their fire started.. I need to be more observant, and helpful.) Once I get settled in by the fire, I'm not moving..

Going camping without a camp fire is like going drinking to a place that dosent sell beer. But glad to hear that there is yet some more people out there that think the world revolves around them. Camp in your drive way and watch National Geographic and the discovery channel and use a fake fire by Indoor Campfires, Enjoy.

For days we have suffered smoke from forest fires. My eyes are watering and I'm coughing. I like fires too, but the smoke and particulates can hurt me.

We bring 'pressed-wood' bricks camping with us and burn those. No restriction on "importing" them, either. Get the right kind and you can cook over them. They start quick, burn hot and well, and very little smoke.

That said, I do wish folks wouldn't burn plastic or trash...

Go to your CP and set the page length to 100 posts. Then it is only 2 pages.

But you have valid point. Even a mega giga pages of posts will not cause one single member to switch sides.

P.S. a mega giga equals a kilo tera

it's not camping without a camp fire. next you will see campgrounds that are campfire free or they could add a tax on them or camp fires extra or like cable tv or wifi extra or go get a motel.

my DW is allergic to smoke

I love camping and campfires. I like cooking on the campfire, but never get to.

When we go camping, we do not go where fires are allowed or we generally do not camp on the weekends or holidays to avoid the crowded times. We are not anti-social we just like to breath comfortably.

The problem is my DW is allergic to smoke of burning wood or leaves. She is a good sport and will try to avoid the smoke by moving away if she can. If she is exposed directly to campfire smoke, she immediately starts coughing and her nose start running. An hour or so later she has problems breathing, sinuses are blocked, and the headache starts.

If you guys are outside enjoying your campfire, we generally are inside with the ac running or have to leave if we can't get away from it.
