10/07/13Rendevous00Yaqui Wells requires fires to be in metal containers. I'll bring "Tubby." Tubby is an old wash machine barrel with legs and handles. It has been inspected & approved by the rangers at Yaqui Wells more than once and it will hold a large fire. I'll also bring some wood to burn since firewood collecting at Yaqui Wells is prohibited. Further, I intend to two tow out to Yaqui Wells Friday early...make camp...and meet you at Christmas Circle Saturday morning.
