Dinosaur Fire Pan?
I am getting some contradictory reports about fire pans in Dinosaur N.P. I have a permit for Gates of Lodore. The two stories that I have heard are:
1. Oil change pans are OK, use rocks to prop them off the ground. Easy, but not strictly in compliance by the rules, my oil pan is 225 sq in, not the 250 sq in that the rules call for. You may be depending on the ranger being not too strict, and I hate to count on things like that.
2. You should get a real fire pan, with legs.
As a canoeist, the huge fire pans carried on rafts are not realistic. There is a Partner Steel Mini Fire Pan available, telescopes to make it smaller. I would still need to make legs for it, although the ad for it suggests rocks to keep it off the ground.
I am not too concerned about the fire blankets, I have some welding blankets that should do.
I searched the forums, and found very little on this topic, mostly discussions about groovers.
Thanks in advance,
