To post a picture: copy the pic to your pc, then host it at a site such as photobucket or image shack. Use the direct link url bracketed by [img]and[/img].

But no, you shouldn't need a permit for a propane fire ring. We are planning on a propane fireplace for Camp Wretched Excess.

The idea is to keep all fire up and off the ground so there's not ten million burn scars when the event's over.

The Car-BQ hosted by Gigsville is my favorite fire pit: a full-sized car filled with burning firewood - up and off the ground - is a nice toasty pit stop in the middle of the night.
Irony. You're soaking in it.

Might I suggest my 'ghetto firepit' approach which uses a galvanized wash tub.

I've had one that I use at home and have taken to the playa. It's a $12 investment and is far superior to the more expensive (but cheepo) fire pits they sell in garden stores: it's indestructible, lightweight, and is deep which makes it safer, more fun, and creates a hotter fire which ends up thouroughly burning the wood so there's not lots of ash to deal with. On playa I make sure to place it on top of cement paver stones so there's no burn scar.

Works like a charm!

If you look at the first picture of the fire pit, that isn't wood. That's fake logs.

Our propane fireplace has ceramic logs. Regular price $249, on clearance for $35. We love a bargain.
