Technically expert, safe belayer, can lead if easy

It's scary dry right now...quite likely we won't see a drop of rain this month.
I was walking through County Park a few weeks ago, and walked past a campsite around dusk with a big 4x4 truck, and a bunch of dudes drinking & yukkin it up. They had a campfire, and were throwing around a burning baton immediately adjacent to the dry grass meadow.
Stupidity knows no bounds. I asked them to refrain from a careful distance...they said ok, then returned to yukking it up as I walked off with Max.
