Recipe for A Joyously Bad Idea
The raft up continued over at Jack London Square for several days after the official raft up from the previous weekend disbanded. When a friend came (we’ll leave names out of this one) at midnight and asked if I’d like to join in on burning his box truck FULL of scrap wood, I couldn’t say no. The wood was beyond salvageable. Total crap with it’s only destiny that of a bonfire. He also had a couple tanks of Gasoline that had gotten water in it. Again, it’s only real use remaining to light stuff on fire. He had scouted out a location on Google Earth that looked to provide adequate stealthiness for constructing a house sized fire that was also clear of any flammable brush. This took us to an area of marsh land near San Francisco Airport. A word of warning, people you meet in the sailing/cruising community can get you involved in some wild adventures. Since I had some fun photos from the evening, I thought I’d share them here. Here’s the basic idea for a really bad idea.
