One of the most requested items on a checklist for vacation rentals on the Finger Lakes, is a campfire area. After a long day on the water, with cooler temperatures creeping in for the night, families love to sit around a fire by the lake to just sit and chat, with conversations covering the days activities, to favorite stories from vacations gone by. It is a bonding place. It is where memories are created and ingrained. It is a place for laughter and for those cool nights a place to gather a little extra warmth before calling it a day.
So when we think of campfires we think of a stack of wood burning in the middle of the pit. Some things have changed and some owners now have gas flamed fire pits. They are a little more formal, much less work and cleaner.
Most vacationers still feel better with a home-made fire pit. I came across this option on the internet and wanted to share it with you. It is called a Swedish Log Candle. It is definitely a conversation starter. You can find instructions at Survivaltek.com a site that I would say is dedicated to those that like the great outdoors.
Let me know what you think and if you have tried one of these fires. I would love to hear from you.
