A square can be called a square, because he or she does not join the campfire crowd. And we always talk about how is not there???

Ponz,

Larimer Square is not square, it is a street. It has lots of bars, or did. I haven't been there is a very long time. As a matter of fact, Mallory Square is not square, but it is big. It is one of my favorites too. I think this is very misleading and I may have to sue both so called "squares" for fraud, misrepresentation and outrageous conduct.

While this may be slightly off topic, I feel the question of misnamed places called "squares" is an issue far more important than campfires. The next issue to explore is sophomoric humor by old men in their dotage.

Gene

I love campfires. Camping is not camping without a fire, unless it's 100 degrees. Man has enjoyed the phenomenon of fire since the beginning.

Just my opinion.

The New Orleans Vieux Carré ("Old Square") isn't square, either, but at least it's sort-of rectangular (one side's curved because of the Mississippi River) and not just a single street. However, Jackson Square— inside the Vieux Carré— actually is square, and covers four city blocks.

The Vieux Carré burned down in 1788 and again in 1794, but it wasn't campfires that caused the two "Great New Orleans Fires" (there, actually managed to mention campfires…)

This was taken yesterday morning. The fire was very warm and welcoming to us. We did not expect the white stuff on the ground when we woke up...

Just curious I wonder how many of those that do not like campfires generally travel more than 150 miles (one way) from home and are away more than a few days per trip. On the other hand I wonder how many of those that enjoy a good camp fire generally travel less than 150 miles (one way) from home and are away just a few days per trip. Maybe someone more technically inclined than I could start a poll.

Fire looks great! (Not much smoke! Good job.)
We camped last Fri & Sat.. Had fires both nights. I'd much rather be out by the fire than sitting in a trailer..

I keep wanting to "like" some of the comments. Especially about smores! I love a good campfire in the right circumstance. I find it comforting and really looking forward to enjoying some campfire time once we get the AS back from its remodeling project and actually start to use it. I love the smell of wood smoke, though not so enamored of smoke in my eyes that I can't get away from. I can see the problem with being in a tightly packed RV park. Too much of a good thing. (like loud music, generators and kids running around screaming) Hopefully we won't find ourselves in those crowded RV parks very often I'm more for the middle of nowhere traveling.
I have read about a few beach RV campgrounds that limit the fires to the beach, seems reasonable.

Huh? I don't follow what you're trying to get at here (although we fall in the first group). Is it that short trip weekenders may like fires more than big trip travelers? Judging by your name you're in the close-to-home crowd?

I like the idea of a camp fire, but in practice it turns out to be less than ideal most of the time. Smokey smelling clothes in a small trailer is a downside that is hard to overcome by any benefit of the fire. A really well made hot fire is ok, but it's rare based on my experience.

How do you cook peach cobbler in a dutch oven if you don't build a campfire? Ahhhh! Peach cobbler, my favorite.

Well, my Airstream DOES have an oven, but I'd still rather make my cobbler in the coals of a lovely campfire.
