While it was raining on Sunday I went out exploring the local Lowe's store! I think I found a new fire pit idea. I have a round metal one on legs that would fit perfectly in the center of these paving stones. (You can't have an in-ground fire). Now I have to figure out how to transport them to the campsite! Because... I'll have to bring about 4 more levels of the stones. :-/
Other camping friends, across the road, have one of these. It's like a generator but with no noise. And to full charge it up will take 35 hours and there goes my home electric bill... but it'll be worth it to have power in our primitive campsite!
I found it on Amazon and ordered it on Sunday afternoon. I was very surprised to find it on my doorstep when I got home from work yesterday! Yay!!
