    I did say tragic... it won't cross I-25. I had a friend loose his house also there. No one died...fires happen and the reason we have insurance..

    I agree it is tragic for all those who are personally affected by this fire. I remember being in the East SanFrancisco Bay hills for the devastating fires there in 1991 (a place I had looked at renting actually burned down in that fire). I feel for Jack and hope all turns out well for him. I think Lance is just looking at it like most natural disaster that he deals with in his job.

    reporting on displacing 7% of any population is not blowing anything out of proportion

    Thanks Erik... I forget sometime.... I see devastation so much I tend to have a different needle. I have to often clarify that every life is precious as I report a low risk event because less than a thousand perished in a disaster. The Tsumami in Thailand 2004 killed 227,898 people. So Marty... sorry for your friend's home. Oh and enjoy your trip. Stay cool. 105 ambient temp in Kansas.

    The list usually hits me when I'm just past the point of no return (usually about an hour from the house). :rofl

    Me too. Except I've been known to remember 15 minutes from the house and mutter "Fuck it" under my breath...

    Leave room because when you pull everything out to camp, you'll never remember how the F it all went in there the first time. :rofl

    OK still can't get to my house and hence the motorcycles. Sorry about not posting, but have been a tad preoccupied. I'm fine. At last report there have been 346 houses burned to the ground and only one killed and one missing. All the resources we need to fight this fire have been provided.

    For Blaster; you get to say I told you so. I wasn't packed, bike wasn't ready, and equipment (comm and GPS) needed some work. So now even if I get back into my house in time I will be a bit behind. So much for "why plan?".
