Don't sweat the fire.....I have one of these in the RV we can use. Legal to use if the ban is not lifted...but it will be by the time we get there.
Charge your batteries folks....
carrot said:Hey Tim,
Wondering if you know whether or not Spruce Run allows hammocks? I know that some of the parks we've been to in the past have been iffy on the subject.
PS Can't wait!!!!
I was looking forward to finally meeting you, showing you Beelzebulb in person, and chatting some Malmsteen. Hopefully next time! Still haven't heard how your bumper got torn off... lol.I was hoping I could make this trip. But I'm going to have to cancel. Family stuff just pushed into my weekend. Sorry, gents. I really wanted to catch up with you guys. It's been a long time since I ripped the bumper off my truck.
Thinking up a nice, mellow, unplugged version as I type. Born to be Mild we shall sing!Either way. I'm still looking forward to the Born to be Wild acoustic set :grouphug::rock:
You can say that again! We damn near had a foundry going last time.
Tim - Excellent post, and update. Thank you for all your time and effort! Great idea about tarping up the gazebo as well.
As for wood, I left a voice mail at Annachar Pellets and Firewood in hopes of getting a good deal out there. I don't know if they only sell large amounts, but perhaps they can point us in the right direction. Will let ya'll know if they call back they call back.
I'm also bringing my home made pellet stove, without the cooking platform this time. It goes through pellets fast (I'll bring plenty), but gives off a lot of heat, and should make for an awesome, and legal marshmallow roaster. :laughing:
OK, cool wood update. Got a very nice call back from Annachar. They usually only do cords and half cords, but they agreed to sell us a quarter cord for $50 if we pick it up, which is a stupendously better deal than buying those pre-bagged bundles at Home Depot, supermarkets ,etc. We'd go through 50 bucks of that stuff in about two hours. A quarter cord is about 150 pieces, which should do especially nice if we end up having two fires (fire ring, and Karl's shelter stove).
If this sounds good to everyone, let's work out the details. It can be picked up Friday so you can use it that night, but will require a few cars or a couple SUV's to haul it, and of course, someone to pay for it. I won't be there until Sat., but if you guys want to coordinate to go get it so you can enjoy plenty of fire Friday night, feel free to do so. I already let them know that might happen. Annachar is about 5 - 6 miles south of the park, and the number is 908-339-8794. Ask for Chris. I'll put in $25 to the cause when I get there, and the rest of ya'll split the remaining $25. Ain't gonna' get a better wood deal than that!
Let's do this. Burn, baby, burn! Camping inferno!
