Pursuant to 36 CFR 261.50(e), the following persons are exempt from
    this order on the Klamath NF:

       1. Persons with a permit from the Forest Service specifically
          authorizing the otherwise prohibited act or omission. *Persons
          with a valid California Campfire Permit are not exempt from
          the prohibitions listed above. However, persons with a valid
          California Campfire Permit may use portable stoves or lanterns
          using gas, jellied petroleum, or pressurized liquid fuel.
Banning campfires on the Klamath NF has become rather normal for the last 
few years. Right now, no campfires in the wilderness areas, National Forest 
lands, or on the PCT.  If you have a California Fire Permit, and are being 
responsible and careful with your stove, whatever kind, (maybe not a Zip), 
you'll be OK. The local wilderness ranger is assigned to the fires, so you 
won't run into this one on the local PCT trail. Just be very careful and 
responsible with your stove!!
