I love a campfire.
Nothing more soothing or hypnotizing than a campfire.
I have found that I live to get a good bed of coals, then I find 3 3-4 inch sticks.
I make a triangle with them on top of the coals.
Then, I take a hollow piece of log and set it vertical.
It takes about 3-4 minutes to make that hollow log a chimney.
This works well for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows.
It also works good for watching and sipping my favorite beverage.
