One adventure we shared was on our honeymoon. We were staying at a cabin in Michigan’s upper peninsula on a tiny inland lake, and we decided to kayak out to a tiny wooded island in the middle of it to have dinner. The island was essentially a peat bog, so we had to keep our fire contained within a metal bucket. We were enjoying whiskey and sausages and suddenly the area under and around the bucket started on fire! Classic school-boy error, not clearing away the pine needles. Nigel had to grab the bucket, fire and all, and scramble down the steep island bank to the lake. Thankfully we got the fire stamped out, but it did put a bit of a “damper” on our romantic ourtdoorsy meal, no pun intended!
