That is one part we don't like but since we shower everyday and change cloths 1-2 times a day everything smells like a campfire in our trailer. If we are away more than 3 nights we usually do a load of laundry at the campground just because of the smell. I love a good campfire just hate the smell and smoke in my face

I agree! Can't imagine someone going to campground and hoping their neighbor doesn't have a campfire. Seems that a lot of yuppies have gotten into "camping".

We like campfires but to me many campgrounds shouldn't allow them as the sites are so close together that the smoke can't help but infiltrate the RV or trailer next door. It is for this reason I don't carry wood when we go to private campgrounds as the sites tend to be close together and I know our fire would either cover us or our neighbor in smoke.

To each their own. I have a camp fire even if its 100 degrees out. Thats part of camping to me and a part I very much enjoy. I dont even stay at camp grounds if they dont allow camp fires. Much more the appeal to boondocking. NO PEOPLE.

I am courteous with it though, try not to burn anything that will smoke like crazy. I have had a "neighbor" even walk over and ask me to put out my fire. I suggested they go pound rocks.

I think we may need some popcorn to go with this thread now.

The main reason we boon dock 99% of the time is to get away from people and have the beauty of nature all to ourselves.

This weekend was our first shake-down with the new unit and I brought along a Big Red Campfire and when I lit it, my wife wanted nothing to do with it. She started gathering twigs and said camping was not camping without the smoke from a campfire! So relieved! I'll keep the propane campfire for drier times when wood burning is banned. The shakedown went well overall.
