The Clark Family Campfire Ashes.

Basically...an old school 35mm film container filled with campfire ashes.....and a log book.

You dump the ashes into 'tonight's' fire...make a note of the date, location and who was there....and the next day scoop and fill the container again for the next campfire.

Neat idea, however would not work for me as I do not have a campfire every time we camp.

Big picture, buddy.

I stared back in 1996....I've missed some YEARS. Doesn't matter. Use it when you remember....or have a fire.

In poor taste Dtiller. Even as a joke, it's seriously missing the target.

The original post, very cool. I like it a lot. Do you have pix to along with the little containers?

Aw come on. Can't be any worse than that old "mother in law" song by Ernie K-Doe. It was just in jest.
