But note that if there is straw in the campsite NO FIRE IS ALLOWED.

The rule has not been vigorously enforced, but has been strictly enforced where one of the fire-guys (or gals) happens by.

eople on the high ground, where straw isn't needed, will generally have sufficient fires, so you can just go visit (and pick) next door if you need a little "warming." Contributing wood for the fire is often welcome, and a good way to make acquaintances so it doesn't hurt to bring a little if you've got some - whether or not you end up having your own home fires to keep burning.

At 16:45 CDT people are making good progress at getting hitched and loaded for the Land Rush in the morning. Progress is slightly hampered by some intermittent rain, but that only really bothers places downstream from here. At present there is a lot of mud from the rain, but that should dry out in a day or two with good weather, or get to be something to swim in if it continues to rain here.
