    WeRJuliIan If it's "Aluminum", why not "Sodum" and "Uranum"?

    I'm not sure if this is the right place, but maybe the Helpful Mods can relocate it..

    If you're coming to Florida, any time soon (this being April 23, '17), please be aware that recent rainfall has been very low, so the whole state is tinder-dry and wildfires are currently burning. Some areas have already been evacuated until the burns are brought under control.
    As far as I know, none of the State Parks have closed, but many counties have burn-bans in force, which includes campfires (but not properly-tended propane or charcoal grills)

    AZ Aliner
    We usually have fire restrictions during early summer in AZ until the monsoon season begins. To comply with restrictions, we purchased a propane fire pit.

    We purchased an Outland Firebowl deluxe propane just for those occasions. Plus we've found it easier to use since you can turn on/off at anytime instead of waiting for the fire to burn down. It's perfect to use during cold weather too.

    It's fits inside our Aliner and is stored there when not in use. Our Aliner has two propane tanks so we use the 2nd tank for cooking, the lantern and providing fuel for the fire pit.

    You might want to contact the authorities and find out if it's acceptable to use for your state and or campground restrictions.

    Good luck.

    Happy Camping...[ALPU][PUT]
