    I checked today with the Sequoia National Forest District and it appears that there are no campfire restrictions now in Monache Meadow.  You do need to have a California Campfire Permit however, which is available online.  California Campfire Permit Link...if you can, be sure to bring some firewood for group campfire.

    Can't make it, but will definitely be on the net. I do a lot of NVIS on 80m, so hopefully it will work.
