...hate campfires?

We hate them also, but unfortunately, our dog loves them... so, guess what?

We'll fire one up occasionally (read: Everywhere campfires are allowed)!

Great pic!

We have exactly the opposite circumstances. Daisy prefers to enjoy the campfire from the comfort of the trailer :-)

Haha - that is cute.

Luckily my wife does not have the same response to campfire smoke that she has to cigarette smoke - gives here a killer headache every time.

Yes - well, that and if I remember correctly, she was just bummed out that we wouldn't let her out of the camper to chase the chipmunk she saw out the window :-)

It does look like a great "I'm insulted" photo though :-)

I don't quite feel the same when I am at a campground that doesn't allow fires. What do you guys stare at all night? It's always a nice moment when you realize the whole group hasn't said a word for a couple of minutes because they have been transfixed by the fire.

Getting tired of the extortion extracted by the Gov of Ontario for firewood at Provincial Parks, and tired of always smelling like wood smoke we succumbed and purchased a 'Campfire in a Can'.

I was pleasantly surprised. It fulfilled virtually all of the family's reasons for having a campfire. Only those that feel the need to poke at a fire were frustrated.

Because it's portable, we can place it at a convenient location rather than where the pit is located on the site. It's also easy for the kids to set up (supervised) so we end up having it burn for longer.

And there's no fighting over the axe to chop the kindling enhancing safety.

All in all - a good purchase. It should pay for itself in a handful of weekends.

Uncertain what a "campfire in a can" is exactly, but...

Heavy taxes on firewood at Provincial Parks, eh? How much taxation for firewood are we talking here?

"Campfire in a can"? Haven't heard of that one - sounds like a good solution, how much $'s per can?

In the Southwest USA, we usually bring our own firewood - or in some cases, at state or national parks, we buy wood from the camp host in the neighborhood of $5-7USD/bundle. The campfire usually goes into a fire ring - or other designated burning location conveniently located near the trailer where we're camping.

This big government heavy tax on firewood you describe might spur off interest in Canada for RV'ers to form a new political action group like the colonists did in Boston for British tax on tea in 1773 - maybe call it the, "CAMPFIRE PARTY." Who knows....?

We do follow the NYS regulations.....

FIREWOOD ALERT - "DON'T MOVE FIREWOOD"

There is a REGULATION that prohibits the import of firewood into New York unless it has been heat treated to kill pests. The regulation also limits the transportation of untreated firewood to less than 50 miles from its source.

By transporting firewood, you could be spreading diseases and invasive insects that can quickly kill large numbers of trees. Help STOP THE SPREAD and obey the Firewood Regulation:

Do not bring firewood to campgrounds or parks.
Get your firewood at the campground or from a local vendor - ask for a receipt or label that has the firewood's local source.
If you choose to transport firewood within New York State:
o It must have a receipt or label that has the firewood's source and it must remain within 50 miles of that source.
o For firewood not purchased (i.e. cut from your own property) you must have a Self-Issued Certificate of Source (pdf, 100kb), and it must be sourced within 50 miles of your destination.
o Only firewood labeled as meeting New York's heat treatment standards to kill pests (kiln-dried) may be transported into the state and further than 50 miles from the firewood's source.
o For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions for Firewood Regulation. For additional questions regarding this regulation, please call this toll-free number: 1-866-640-0652 or e-mail: firewood@gw.dec.state.ny.us.

Not been a problem as there are plenty of local venders.....

Bob

Everyone who lives in a western state or province knows how devastating the bark beetle infestation has been. Taking any firewood across the border is verboten. We once got stopped by customs agents for firewood in the truck. They wouldn't take it and just let us through. After waiting nearly an hour in line, we had to return with it to Canada. The Canadian agent wouldn't take it. We had to drive a ways to the nearest place where we could dump it in the bushes. Then we had to wait in line again at the border. Not worth it!

No doubt the current heat wave will generate some open fire bans.

I see notices at Forest Service parks not to move firewood or bring firewood from another park to prevent bark beetle infestation. Oops. I ain't in compliance. There is always a few sticks of wood on the back of my truck...
