If you ever get a chance to hang with JOSH THOMPSON, bring matches, and maybe marshmallows. Because there's a decent chance he'll be lighting a fire. He says, quote, "I love campfires. Outside the tour bus, we'll just build fires.
"If it's at a county fair or somewhere in the country we can usually talk someone into getting us some palettes and we'll start a fire.
"But we've even had them in hotel parking lots. We just love to pull up chairs and have a couple beers and hang out. The ambiance of a fire and the smoke, it just feels good . . . makes me think I'm camping no matter where I am."
Have a great day!
