I think that was an effective video; it kept my attention and conveyed their message well.

If I had a criticism, it would be that some people may construe the message to mean 'don't ever use campfires' although in many locations that is the correct practice.

The more time I spend in the wilderness the more I want to protect and preserve it.

Definitely something I've always been paranoid about.. leaving a small flame or hot coals,, coming back to a brush fire, or finding that the wind took a burning ember to my tent, which is now a pile of ashes..

Great video by the way!

Short, to the point, and had effective actors to publicize the issue. It was well balanced for both young and older alike.

Good overall public service announcement video.

If that happened to me while camping I think I would shit myself, seeing four crazed kids with guns come running into my camp.  Just as well I collapse, cover and drown my fire when done.
