Part of my job, my gift to Loretta, is gathering sticks for a little fire. I break them up and stack in a pile for 'Ret to toss on the fire. Even when we have larger firewood I use the big pieces to contain the smaller fire. I'm not that much of a camper but I've not had many problems finding sticks somewhere. Once when we were backpacking we used a single candle for our 'campfire'.
Is kiln dried lumber illegal?
While I did it not knowing it was agInst the rules, the last campground we were at prohibited going around and even scavaging for small sticks. Seems like everything is getting tough to do today without offending someone or breaking a rule here or there.
I can understand not importing firewood from far away places, but then why do the campgrounds have to gouge you with their captive audience prices? It is counterproductive to the cause.
