Letter to the Editor: Campfire should be built up a little higher

Hello The Hiking Times!

Dontcha think you should put another log or two on that fire?  We’ve got enough beer to last for a couple more hours and I’m not wussy enough to turn in yet!

Are you scared of fire or something?  Come on, man, we’ve got a lot of wood in that pile and this is the last night of the trip.  Just move your seat out of the wind and that smoke won’t be in your eyes.

Look how dry your socks are getting!  And think of how much weight the burn-holes in your boot soles will save.

Build up that fire, dude!  What could go wrong?
