wood fires at Arapiles 19-May-2014 At 10:09:48 PM Ben_E
Probably not quite as gloriously silly as the alpine cows argument (mind you - have you ever tried setting fire to a whole cow? It's remarkably difficult to get them to take...), but in all likelihood any fire that gets up into the scrub and gullies at Araps is going to get to burn itself out irrespective of any firewood collection policy.

I'd like Reluctant's middle ground argument on firewood collection if it wasn't for the F@*#wit Factor. On a semi-recent trip to Araps I overheard a gent from S.A. boasting that he and some sidekicks had used their car to drag a hollow log out along the bottom road somewhere. Apparently after they threw the whole thing onto the fire critters went scurrying off in every direction, which he found highly amusing. The thought of giving these people any more encouragement in their pyrotechnics doesn't do much for me.

If campfires are allowed there is always going to be some contraband wood collection going on, realistically. Even up at Buffalo where wood is available to buy you see plenty of people on the prowl.
