Anyone else with COPD? How do you cope with smoldering camp fires?

I am on O2 almost all day now and it is difficult finding a place with out fire rings or where I can at lest get upwind.

Gary,
Interesting problem. I don't know where you are, or where you camp, but there are certain areas and campgrounds that prohibit open fires due to forestry, proximity to sensitive areas or other reasons. I go to a state park on the beach in Delaware with no fires allowed. I generally use ReserveAmerica for state parks in PA, NY and DE, and that site includes complete details for each park, so you may be able to search for your specific criteria.
Good luck.

Tim, thanks for your response. We generally go to Moab or at least west of Denver. I can handle fires while the people are eating or roasting marshmallows. It is the fires that are not put out or left to smolder all night that cause problems. Invariably the park owner says campers are required to put out after use but seldom seem to. More than once have left a campground early so I can breath. I of course keep the O2 generating equipment away from open flames. If possible I will choose an upwind site from other campers. Have requested the local park here to make some of the upwind sites (generally westerly) fire ring less but they have not acknowledged my requests.

Yea!! the governor just announced campgrounds can open again on May 21 here in Ohio.
