Sounds like you had a good time with friends. Never met you yet, Nut, but I know you by reputation Maybe a chance will come up this summer with AT and one or two bottles of beer[^]

Sounds good Blackfly - it would be nice to finally meet you!

Nice job on the photoshop Hodge. No fun allowed! That sign seems to pop up everywhere I go.

Hi, speedy and I passed you guys on our way out and thought we recognised you from your profile. We are new to CT (about a month) and haven't met anyone yet, we are still a little shy as we haven't learned the secret handshake .

A group of us are headed up to the Skagit Trail for an overnight at Delacy Camp this weekend. Does anyone know if there are fire pits at the campsite? We'd like to pack in a fire log, but we won't bother with the extra weight if camp fires are discouraged there.

There are no fire pits on the Skagit campsites, in fact you will find "No Fires" posted around all the campsites. Personally I would not burn (being an ex-BCforest fire fighter makes me paranoid), but many do. However, we all know Billygoat and Exscape had one last week using a fire log during their Hubba Hubba testing, and they did not burn the forest down as there is virtually no risk of it spreading. The campsite is covered in deep sand , and you are right beside a water source. Use your best judgement, don't pick up dead fall to burn, and all should be fine. I bet you see a few other fires out there this weekend as well.

And make sure you don't have a fire in the ecological reserve There 's no where to camp in that area anyway.

Thanks for the info Speedy! I'm a real rule follower so we didn't bother to pack in the weight of a presto log. We had a great time anyway, even if gathering around the candle lantern after dark is a bit less impressive.
