the evenings were cold, and cookings required fire. of course i brought a bundle of firewood with me, and there was a little firewood onsite when i got there.
it's a rule, though, to leave a site better than you found it, so if you found wood, you leave more than was there when you got there.
it's not legal on vermont state lands to cut standing trees, but you're welcome to saw up all the deadfall or driftwood that you like. and the farther you get fro any campsite into the woods, the more really excellent deadfall you find.
only you have to saw it into manageable logs and then use your straps to haul them into camp where you spent a good amount of your time sawing them up into decent firewood.
so i reorganized the woodpile, put it up on rails, sawed up logs and cut kindling.
