@JT954 My father-in-law and I used to bury potatoes deep in the coals and let them sit for a long time. Delicious. Wrapping corn in a few layers of foil and then into the coals is also excellent. (I’ve heard of doing it in just the husks, but haven’t tried it.)
Holy shitake they actually had beer as a choice! They NEVER have the most obvious, best choice in these polls!! I demand to speak with the manager immediately. This is excellent, and MOST CERTAINLY not Meh.
Cracking peanuts and throwing the shells in the coals and pitching the occasional nut to the squirrel that has become curious.
Long story. One year at elk camp a buddy brought his teenage daughter. She hid in the trailer all the time. We got a golden mantle squirrel (aka timber tiger) hooked on our trail mix. I got my buddy to bring his daughter out. She sat by the fire and I put a peanut on her shoe and said “don’t move”. Sure enough, Scar (we had named him) came out and in fits and starts came up to her shoe and grabbed the nut and ran off. She really got into it and after many snacks, with a trail of nuts and raisins managed to get him to crawl up her leg and onto her lap. It was so funny watching her fight the giggles and try to be still while he cautiously navigated the folds she had made in her pant leg to hold the treats. She sat outside with us most of the rest of the trip.
