Why don't we build a big 'ole fire & sit around teaching some alcohol based beverages to like being empty and discuss this in more detail?!?

Well I'm all for that last idea. And you've all made great points too. Certainly burning PT wood, garbage, dogs, small children, etc is irritating even for those who do like a good fire.

I thought this post would turn into one of those....HOW DO I CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE FLAMES posts... where they throw all kinds of toxic crap into the fire to make different colored flames while assaulting our lungs with chemicals....

That always gets me stirred up...

I guess camping is life and we need to revisit the Golden Rule.
No campfire, no life.

I like a good fire. But I agree with not burning your trash, that's what the dumpsters are for.

Welshman, I like a good campfire also, but have never added some of the items you mention above, ie: dogs and small children!

!!!!!

Sorry, I couldn't resist that, I've been giggling since reading it yesterday!

My thought, if you can't have a CAMPfire why camp. As long as WOOD is the only thing that is burned.

Campfires may be permitted and he may have the right to have one, but I have the right to enjoy my site free from acts of commission or omission perpetrated by others. That includes smoke, loud noise, barking dogs, screaming children, etc, etc. In other words, keep your "stuff" on your own lot - not on mine!
Camping has always been about being out and having fires to cook on and to enjoy. So, as with tv, movies, etc., if you don't like you can make a choice to not go camping where this type of activity may exist. I agree with barking dogs and loud noises, but kids will be kids, I was one and I had one, all a part of growing up.

I think you need one of those RV Resorts that ban or bar, fires, kids, dogs and loud music!!

JMHO.........

I Know Richard personally Paul, and I assure you he wasn't inferring he didn't want any of those things. He just wants people who enjoy those kinds of things to enjoy them, but to be considerate of others. Kids having fun and running around is a whole lot different than out of control kids with absentee parents not monitoring what their kids are doing. I know Richard doesn't need any of those resorts, he has dogs, he loves my kids, and we hang out at the camp fire together. We just do it so as not to impose on someone elses good time.
