In the last little while, in this neck of the woods, we have seen snow, rain, ice pellets, fog, really in-depth cold and delightfully mild temperatures, high winds, bright sunny days and grey miserable ones. It was the perfect time to be out for a couple of nights of hot tent camping. Strange, I thought, as I lay in my cozy winter sleeping bag watching shadows of the flames dancing on the tent walls, it seemed summer like. The aroma of burning maple transported me to another place and time – it was a good feeling. All was quiet; beautifully silent and peaceful. I miss Reese (my black lab) who would leave his dog bed and jump up onto the cot and sleep beside me laying his head on my shoulder. I tucked into the warmth of the bag and snuggled into the pillow as I would Reese and was soon fast asleep. Winter Camping is Great!

Agreed, I actually love a Campfire that has a Majic Smell of different colors and aroma. One of my favorite wood to burn is Wild Cherry I love the Smell it’s hypnotic just to be Outdoors and away from the every day.

I just love Having a Nice Campfire and Spending time Cooking over it ! I like to pull coals out from the side and Cook a GREAT Dinner, nothing like some fresh fish or Deer Chops and Corn on the Cobb.

Dancer you have some good Topics, I really love a Good Campfire especially when it’s just a Clear but not to Cold Night.My plans for my Bus is to build a nice Deck with a Firepit in the middle with built in Seating around the area. We just need the rain to Stop around here.

We are having some interesting weather in this neck of the woods too huntaholic. Strange for sure.
I can picture the firepit and the seating. It is easy to imagine a group of fabulous people gathered around that fire enjoying themselves immensely and laughing at the antics of friends. It’s Good Stuff!

I’m with you Hunt it’s got to Stop Raining so we can have some Outdoors time, hopefully before the Cold Weather comes to a end. Great POST Dancer having friends around a Fire Pitt is Special indeed.
