Dancing aroud the fire on San Diego camping site

What could be better than a camping holiday with a fire! A sense of freedom that can be experienced while camping, whether in a tent, caravan or motorhome. However, there are some rules that should be followed when lighting a campfire.

The fire at the campsite is used not only to prepare meals or to warm up on cool evenings.
The traditional Central bonfire was not only a place for evening meetings, but also a base for various ritual dances by the fire.
Ritual dances are present in every culture, both in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Today, some campgrounds contour these meetings by the fire to feel more connected with nature and companions.

At the campsite, everyone can meet around the fire, share stories, make friends, and enjoy the warmth and the company of one another.

In the early morning or in the evening, campers also cook with the fire, the heat is useful for cooking food, the smoke and the flames make the fire more beautiful, and the cooking and the heat keeps the food warm, the food is fresh and ready for breakfast.

Circle dancing has its roots in antiquity. Our ancestors gathered around the fire to feel safe. But it was not only the deterrent of wild animals, the warm fire that gave them a sense of security. Equally important was the awareness of being part of the community.

To this day, the circle gives the opportunity to be noticed by others (we stand facing people, we can look them in the eyes or feel the close presence of a person standing next to them). They see us, they stand in front of us and beside us, they don't hide behind our backs. And at the same time they protect, because when they stand in front of us, they see what we cannot see - we can be sure that they will notice the impending danger.

And although our civilization teaches us to compete, it tells us that we can do it alone, deep down we instinctively feel the need to be part of a group.

In the past, our ancestors danced around the fire, then around the village and only recently we have learned to dance in the streets. But the circle dance is still present in our heart and soul. It was always there, but now we are beginning to dance again.

In order to survive, we have to give up our individuality and our fear of being alone.

Now we have the opportunity to dance again, in a group, but more important, we can dance in the streets. We can take back our freedom, we can dance in the streets, we can dance in the streets, we can dance on a campsite.

I wil share with you some thoughts how to have fun on camping but stay safe and obey the law of California state.

I love spending holidays on campsites. I prefer camping instead of hotels and resorts because  when  I'm hiking or camping, there is not that much of a need to check if something is safe. Campgrounds are usually very clean and well maintained so  if you are interested in a safe  camping site, this is the place to  go  for campgrounds.  
I am currently  camping  on the Cleveland National Forest. If you are into camping, the two are pretty similar places near San Diego area.

I've been in both camps, campgrounds at different times of the year. I like them both though. In my opinion, it is pretty  clean  and the  trails  are nice and soft.

I am also super excited about the great camping on the White River National Forest. I am not sure how I feel about the camping on the White since there is only one  camp  in a  2 1/2 mile  range from the lodge, but since the campsites are both in the White River valley, I will be checking out both locations  every  weekend  to  make sure there are no  problems

However, some campers are afraid of fires.
They think that the fire may be a danger to them, or may hurt them. We will discuss it in the next part.


Campfire on camping - follow the rules


As a basic rule, where an open fire is not expressly permitted, it is forbidden. Damage caused by fire or arson can be expensive and entails high penalties and claims for damages. Therefore, you should think carefully about where you make a campfire. As a general rule, you need the landowner's permission to build a campfire, even in public places, such as a riverbank. Use only dry, untreated wood or charcoal for a campfire. Do not use cut or split wood or other firewood that is not dry.

You may build a campfire only in an area where an open fire is permitted. In Europe, many national parks and nature reserves forbid the building of campfires, except in specially designated areas. In addition, you are not allowed to make a campfire in a protected area, for example, the World Heritage Sites of the Natura 2000 network.

Some campfires may cause serious environmental damage. For example, forest fires can have a devastating effect on wildlife. When the forest is destroyed, the insects and animals which normally live there and use a forest a shelter and source of food.

This is why you should always think about the consequences of getting fire out of control.

Be cool, stay safe and have a nice day.
