Last Friday I posted sounds created by rowers on the Mississippi river. Sadly, weak batteries prevented me from capturing much more, but I gave them a rest and had another go a bit later in the evening. This time my aim was to record the sound of the fire crackling. I wasn’t bothered about the general ambiance of the site, or the noise my mates were making as I made the recording.
What you hear is the fire crackling, a plane flying overhead, someone breaking sticks for the fire, someone crushing a can (we only bring cans and pack them all out when we leave, often including other cans that were there before we arrived), and a couple of my friends chatting about meteorites before the batteries gave out again. Before we left we made sure that the fire was completely out and no stray cans were left behind.
