Great, I feel much safer after watching that video and taking the quiz. I feel double safe knowing that everyone else that plans to camp in CA will be doing the same.

But, I'm confused. The video did not cover anything about the propane stove or MRI heater that I like to use. The permit allows me to use the equipment but I don't know how!

The regulation also states using "fire" for the purpose of "lighting" but the video did not cover how to use our candles. I'm worried about doing something wrong!

We have a long tradition of celebrating our daughter's birthday with a campout. I understand we need to clear 5 feet from the edge of our campfire.. but should I clear 5 feet around her or the cake?

Maybe future presentations will address my concerns. Thankfully all of these permits expire in two months. I can hardly wait to get my next one, and dozens for years to come:) How about you?

This is such a great idea. Hopefully other states will take note and come up with their own permit system. Then as we travel all over the US we can learn even more; like how a gas lantern or oil lamp fits into the equation, or why CA only requires 5 feet of clearing while Washington requires 8 feet.

I'll bet the agencies involved could do a lot more with this program if they simply collected a small fee for the permit. Maybe this could develop into something like the envasive aquatic species program.

It would be nice to have an annual permit sticker for our vehicles and some check points when entering public land and private property which is included when accompanied by "written permission of the land owner".

At least CA solved the risks of small engine spark arrestors. Hey, that's an idea_ electric campfires! Lithium could solve it. We need more lithium powered products. I'm sure we will be ready in time for the tsunami of spent batteries that is heading our way.
