Fun fact to share about the rim fire from 2013.. it's still not out, an underground fire was discovered in 2014 near cherry lake where the rim fire burned, it is called the rosasco incident. Stanislaus national forest is conducting a firing operation around it.

It seems like they’re just beating on CalFire and marginalizing the effect private industry has had. Particularly with the bit on how CalFire is at fault for taking charge over local agencies. Local agencies can’t handle the current conditions. Had more proactive measures been taken... They might be able to.

They’re not wrong in saying CalFire has a lot to do with what was going on, but I sense a distinct Libertarian bias to that article. I don’t know, I don’t live there. I usually just come in and out as needed. I mean, “CNN drops”? What kind of semi-scholarly article goes in and specifically calls out the verbal punching bag for the “fake news” crowd?

I think the gist of what’s being said is probably right. I don’t know how to be proactive while also handling the current situation in the summer & fall with fires short of a massive effort.

Did I do 490? I don't remember. I know I've used Behave. Maybe that was RX341? Can't remember. Too many classes. Yeah, nomograms are probably not useful, but they are super cool. I really like how much information is presented in one place.
We are doing the S-490.
Very interesting but this is for smart people for sure! We’ve only started vectoring yesterday. Saw weather, fuel types/properties, topography, etc. Surely will become more intense as we keep going.

We are here for a week. Day 4 today :)
