[pct-l] Stoves are now OK to use in parts of Angeles NF

Hi Everyone,  Not sure if my prior e-mail made it out on this subject, but I wanted to point out  Paragraph number 3 under persons exempt from the Order and the second sentence which says that persons with a valid California Campfire Permit may use a portable stove using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel.

Does that resolve the issue that certain stove can be used anywhere in Angeles National Forest?

Thanks Nathan for this link. I re-posted it here with a different
subject line so people will be sure to see it

The old "no stoves at all" order was dated 4 Jan

This new order (linked to above) supersedes it, dated 12 Jan, and now
you can use your stove in an "established recreation area"

The sky is no longer falling as long as you cook in those areas.

Now back to discussing how PCT Thru Hikers can't be trusted with fire,
and the evilness of fire rings, and no-cook meals
