We don't plan to use the main campgrounds except to shower and buy ice.
1.) Once we have our Back Country permit can we just find an approved designated and unoccupied spot and stay there for several nights?
Do we need a permit for every zone we might camp in?
Do you get the same price for any amount of permits you pull? Or is there a separate price for each permit? Are there nightly fees besides the cost of the permits?
Then- do we just clean up that camp and move on another campsite in a Zone we have a permit for?
Or do we have to give the Rangers a day to day plan before we even get our bearings?
The way I think I understand it, there are no reservations required and you just register the Zones you plan on staying in and for how long in each. And if the Zone is not full or off limits you find a campsite.
Can you get several permits for different Zones for the same days?
Then- do we just clean up that camp and move on to another campsite? Do we have to give the Rangers a day to day plan before we even get our bearings?
2.) Will a new galvanized car oil collection pan count as a fire pan? We are taking a gas stove and a BBQ grill. But a controlled mesquite fire is the best.
I am sure there will be more better questions later.
So technically if you raise the pan off the ground by some means, it will be alright, but technically even if you bring your own wood to burn you are not supposed to do so.Al
I can't help but wonder what the statute of limitations is on a permit violation . . .Al
The campsite boundaries will be obvious.
I know each site is different, but are the “footprint” edges marked in some way?
Can You tell I'm getting excited?
Jeff, I'm assuming Chisos was asleep when you took the time to post this?
Kozy Times portable fireplace is the first and only open flame UL (underwriters laboratory) approved appliance in the United States. This allows it to meet fire ban restrictions exemptions and also allows you to burn it in most State and National Parks.
