right, but these all very small flames, much smaller than a personal grill, and i could have sworn i heard some people talking about bringing these. im probably wrong tho haha
The flames on any tiki torches I've ever seen aren't really all that small...
I went with several friends on a camping trip over Memorial Day weekend and we had 4 tiki torches around the area we were all sitting and two of the torches completely caught fire and burned down to the ground. I think the container of the fuel must have gotten too warm and developed a leak or something, because the whole basket caught fire and eventually the entire torch burned to the ground.
If you need more light, use battery powered lamps or something, not tiki torches.

is it really necessary to have extra lighting for your campsite? because, i'm too broke to buy sweet battery powered lights, or a generator, and i was thinking about looking for the small paper lanterns that run from batterys at the dollar store, but since it's supposed to rain i wonder how well those would hold up...
so, will i be able to find my life at night, or will it be pitch black? i thought there was some really big lights around the sites to at least aid your way a little, right? i mean otherwise, walking back to your camp would be a *bit* of a hassle...

After 3 years, I've found that the only light I really need is a small L.E.D. flashlight that takes one AAA battery. This is what I use to find my camp at night. In "06 they actually gave some out in the goodie bag when you got your wristband, although it was a cheap one that didn't last long. I've bought two at Mal-wart for $3 each. They worked great for a while, then died. I'm gonna exchange both on the way to Manchester and see how they hold up before resorting to a different model.
Once I'm at camp, I'm either having a quick meal and a couple of beers before heading back to Centeroo, or just crashing for the night. I've got a 14 L.E.D. rechargeable handheld spotlight for use at camp. It does a good job for finding things in my truck and in my tent.
It looks like it is going to dry up throughout this week (rain is slowing down). if the grass gets to dry, and a flame gets the grass... you could be looking at endangering a lot of people! Try to stick to the guidelines, the organizers know how to keep the grounds safe for all.
