    Hope all stays well your way. Thats beautiful country you live in. Its a shame to see it burn down. :9

    In 25 yrs, it will probably be healthier because of this, but in the short term. It sucks.

    Over the past couple years there's been a handlful of fires within a few miles of my house out here in the pines. Most of em had the wind in my favor but one definately did not. Nothin like that helpless feeling just wondering when the fires gonna get too close. It's hard to sleep knowing there's a fire creepin your way. Thankfully our forest fire guys are some of the best around and kept it at bay.

    Good luck corey!

    Just watch this video, it's should give ya a good laugh
