Since this is year 73 of California’s drought, the National Park Service has declared that no fires of any kind may be built in the campgrounds in the area we’ll be haunting. We won’t even be able to cook with charcoal, which means that there will be no repeat performance of last year’s chili show where a can of chili being heated on the open flames had its contents rise up out of the can in a single piece until the tower got too tall and flopped into the coals. Ah, good times.
