Captain’s Log: Day 2. We’re entering a different world

Mission: Find gas burning fire pit for evening gathering. Urgent.

There was a shortage of portable gas burning fire pits and we realized that a fire is a definite necessity after our first non-campfire evening. There is a fire ban, so really gas burning is the only option.

Several hours and in-person rejections from stores later, we had a fire pit. Thank heavens. The kids sat around the fire and told stories and chatted and it was a magical moment for the team.
