A Burning Desire

It has been 19 years since bonfire collapsed and if the University had it their way it never would have been built again. Fortunately the tradition has been carried on off campus.

Bonfire is constructed by hand. Trees are Cut with axes, shouldered out of the Woods to tractor paths, hauled to Load Site by tractor, shouldered again and loaded onto trucks, and transported to Stack Site where they are unloaded and sorted.  Why lead with a story about bonfire instead of immediately talking about one of the greatest games in history?  Because to understand Texas A&M you must know bonfire is the undying flame of love that every loyal Aggie carries in their heart for the school.
