They are important, especially because he, like his father, likes burned marshmallows. This means they're quite hot.
Loved The Sandlot
. Now I'm looking forward to that, as well.
Also, now I want s'mores again. I'm pretty sure we still have enough materials left over to make that happen. Might have to get on that this evening.

This sounds awesome. Definitely more rugged than what we did, but we'll work up to it as the kid(s) get(s) older.
Do you carry bear spray? There's an area I was told about that's supposed to be great for camping, and it's not supposed to be super common to see bears there, but it's not outside the realm of possibility. That being the case, I've debated whether I ought to carry some when I finally get up there.
