I'm curious if any of you have give up camp fires. At least the ones that burn wood. There are several portable fire rings that use propane, but I'm wondering if anyone is using other alternatives.

I know as well as anybody that green is in but I am still resisting. I do however burn responsibly and keep my camp fires small and under control. I am lucky to have a friend who runs a large commercial cabinet shop. Kiln dried scrap oak is always available at his shop and I keep enough around to supply my needs. One of my pet peeves is people who burn pallets. I have seldom ever seen the same people cleaning up the nails that are left behind. Last year while camping near Bishop,Ca on the Owens river I choose a prime spot late in the day and set up. The next morning I noticed I had apparently chosen a popular spot since there were literally hundreds of nails under my rig. I could not believe it, my new truck with bran new Michelin's and 4 new marathons on my trailer setting on a bed of nails, needless to say I spent a great deal of time raking up the mess. Because of this experience I pre walk all potential camp spots.
