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


Novel idea for sure! But Dtiller's post made me laugh.


Times fun when you're having flies!

I started keeping a journal when we bought our TT in the fall of 2005. I have a entry for every day camping, even if it is just a paragraph. The kids like reading about all the trips, especially the ones before they were born! My wife did something like this, she has taken a film canister of beach sand from every beach we have been to.

Cool idea. We have done similar with beach sand from all the different beaches we have visited.

One container.
Keep dumping the container of ashes at the beginning of the fire and collecting them at the end.

Why not get an empty hour glass and place her ashes into it, place it on the mantelpiece and put her to work telling the time.

We keep one log from the bundle for the last campfire and use that for the next campfire. And so it goes............

You can have a bonfire and get rid of her in one fell swoop! [emoticon]
