My only issue is with a camper that builds a fire, then goes back in their RV or leaves the campground, and their fire smouldering, with white smoke billowing in the breeze....

Regards,

Reganzo

It was suggested on another thread that this was a good place for this link....
So here's to adding some fuel to the fire!

I cant believe some of these people hate campfires ? These are the same people who love book burnings and mass riots and looting . Why I guess campgrounds should be in parking lots and we should never go out of our trailers , hey thats why we have convection ovens . We may as well say no campfires , put age limits on Airstream parks and no pets or children as well (oops that ones already done ) ! The birds sometime poop on the trailer , lets exile them too !! Anyone else hate the sun ? I do it brings skin cancer , lets not forget allergies ! hate them too . It used to be about getting outside . There is even a picture of Wally next to a big fire . I guess this kind of forward thinking is why we no longer have wars , and us , our Airstream . Just my 2 cents .

Please apologize for that statement. There is not one single person on this thread that I know of who loves book burnings or mass riots and looting. Not even the ones who hate campfires.

Even if you meant it as a joke, it's in extremely poor taste.

Seems to me those who love to burn books hate disorder such as riots and looting.

And many people have allergies and still love the outdoors—imagine what it feels like to have to stay inside on days when the pollen count is high or pollution is so bad that they have asthma attacks if they go outdoors.

Many people on this thread have said they like campfires, but not the smoke. And they especially don't like people who are inconsiderate of others. Living in a world with people who think differently is not easy, but necessary.

Probably not, but REI sells compact solar panels for recharging your smart phone, GPS, or whatnot.

May I recommend the Shooting Star Drive In in Escalante, Utah? If you sell your Airstream, for nostalgia's sake, you can stay in one of theirs, then go backpacking along the Escalante River.
Airstream Park Drive-In || Escalante Utah Hotel || Shooting Star
Canyons of the Escalante River | Utah.com

Not sure what the NPS/BLM campfire policy is, though.

With a nickname like "Beer Snob", though, locating freeze-dried beer could be a problem.

The camper that offends you is no more infringing on your rights than you are his. Your right to not have to breath his smoke infinges on his right to have the fire -they smoke. Your right to run your generator or a/c infringes on his right to not have to listen to it. When it gets to the point that you are too offended you can leave. If you find yourself leaving often enough then maybe you should stay home.

I like to enjoy myself but I have never felt that I should be able to deny a fellow camper the same enjoyment.

Good post, kinda explains why I choose to boon dock almost all the time. Some of us just aren't fit to live around people. But if you can put up with a well built campfire, cigar smoke, single malt vapors, soft music and good conversation, we are a lot of fun. "We choose what upsets us" -Me

I have a complicated relationship with rain. Living in the high desert for 35 years, I'm not all that used to rain. It is a novelty and much appreciated so we can drink water, wash with water and use it to cook. We love rain and snow, but …

So when we travel to places like the Pacific northwest, all that rain, wow! All day and so much of it! How cool is that? After about 5 days I start to dislike rain; another 5 days and I start to hate it.

We took a trip to Alaska where it rained 90% of the days for about 5 or 6 weeks, maybe more. Not always a big rain, but sometimes a lot and all day. It rained where is usually doesn't rain much and even more where it does. It rained so often the mosquitoes got used to it and flew around looking for my blood even in the rain. That was not a good thing. Another trip to Alaska's southeast where it rains a lot, it rained even more. It was supposed to be the dry season, but it wasn't that year. Strangely, when we got to Ketchikan, one of those places that gets more rain than any town in the US or North America or somewhere, it didn't rain at all and was sunny. I've recovered and really want it to rain here in the high desert.

Rain can be a cure for smoky campfires, but here it often only rains enough to make more smoke.

The Flaming is now reaching beyond the campfire

I Want to be Annoying to the Very End....and then Some

After reading this thread, my last wish is this: the memorial service will be concurrent with the cremation, and the attendees will be seated downwind.

The musical accompaniment shall be this: Just this one song....played over and over and......

I actually like campfires, but the following list, though not all inclusive, will give the reader a thumb nail sketch of what does bother me:

-poor grammar
-really hot weather
-really cold wather
-when things load.. really.. really. really.. SLOW
-my handwriting
-when you lose something when you need it.
-miley cyrus and the jonas brothers
-people who put 'z' at the end instead of S
-pEoPlE wHo TaLk LiKe ThIs
-Ppl who type lik dis
-people who say omg in real conversations.
-people who talk like valley girls
-twilight obsessors
-freakishly skinny people
-rap music
-bad tasting spaghetti
-people who abbreviate every single word.
-smelly dogs.
-television commercials that turn up the volume and blast your ears,
-empty ice trays in the freezer
-people who ignore me when I am speaking to them
-people who continue to speak to me when it is obvious that I am ignoring them
