         under 
fire pans are recommended to facilitate total ash removal.

     j.  Launch, travel (stay within visual contact), and camp together as a group.  No
         boatsmay be sent ahead to secure campsites.  Groups launching separately may not 
         camp together if such action would result in more than 25 persons occupying a campsite,
