We have another wildfire going, pretty close... We're packing the cars..Mrs Nickj looks at me- "All those fly rods are the first thing you pack?" Me- "Of course not, the fireproof box from the safe was first, then meds." Then reels, handguns, etc...The unreplaceable stuff. Geez..

Best of luck with the fire and be safe!

We haven't had any yet this year, but with this wind it certainly drying things out pretty good, I just hope we don't have a repeat of last year.

Re: Priorities
I hope your family and home are ok...the whole flipping west is likely to be ablaze before the end of this fire season.

Here's hoping for the best case scenario for all of our CO forum members. Stay safe out there.

Only been down this road once, and it was hell on wheels for the fire crews. Brought up my motor home so they had a place to sleep, guys flaked out on the carpe,t and hoses running through my/neighbors yards.

I couldn't cook food fast enough to keep them feed. Neighbors running to Safeway ( Albertson's?) to get more stuff. BBQ's on the street/back yard where operational for close to 72 hours. Washing machines going 24/7 to give them clean clothing.

End game was fire out (7,000 some acres of grass/trees) and we/they had one hell of a Block Party.Lots of us got very drunk.:wavetowel

Me too.

Re: Priorities
Thanks for the well wishes. We're about 5 miles from the nearest evacuation perimeter. The fire's grown to about 500 acres... We're all waiting to see what happens when the wind gets going this afternoon. Packed and ready to leave if we have to.
