Last week’s blog featured our annual youth group campout which is always a great experience rain or shine. It seem like we get more rain than shine, but that’s part of living and camping in the Pacific Northwest. There is one problem with taking that many people camping at once, which is sitting around the campfire at night. By the time you get twenty four or so people with their chairs around the campfire, you end up with a circle that is so large that hardly anyone is able to absorb any warmth from the fire. Yes, you have the ambiance of the campfire, but even in August (especially this August) it can still be cool at night. Most campgrounds have a limit of eight people per site. Now I know why, so everyone can get close enough to the campfire at night to stay warm!
I guess next time we need to reserve a group campsite that has one of those huge campfire rings that is about four foot in a diameter or so. Then we can have a bigger fire and everyone can stay warm. And what red blooded male doesn’t want to build a bigger fire!
Needing a bigger fire ring, just another adventure in RVing!
Lots of Chairs and People for a Standard Fire Ring!
Who Doesn’t Like a Campfire?
