    Nice. Did the Gasquet to Cave Junction to Happy Camp drive several times last year on a fire.
    And from Seiad Valley up over PCT to Appleton Res on Miller fire that started on the Rouge-Sis NF

    Actually that part of Oregon is known as the "Banana Belt" as it gets the weather right off the Pacific ocean, rarely freezes, rarely snows, and never ever gets too hot. As a consequence that house had merely a gas fireplace, and no AC. The taller trees are Douglas Firs, but I planted 100 Redwoods, and they were like children. When I go back I drive by and look at them. they're 16 years old and some are hitting 40 feet tall. It will be a spectacular place in 100 years. A man can sure leave a mark, for better or worse!

    Congrats on your pines. Sounds nice.

    Drptrch,

    A drip torch is probably the ultimate friend of the pyro! And they are so much more fun than a chainsaw in my opinion. You're probably getting stuck in the incident command center nowadays aren't you? And that's sure beautiful country - I love the lower Klamath. Were you around for the Biscuit fire? Half a million acres of stumps in 2002.

    thanks. I have heard that before about areas in OR. lots of 70's, etc. we get cool down here, but also... ugh! hot, too. add in the humidity, especially after a hot summer afternoon rain... and it can be very unpleasant. but we have some amazing hi-perf a/c units/systems. awesome stuff! I don't know how some people can eat a hardy lunch and then work out in it. I am a rancher also, and I have to, but I drink water only. once :drinkingcoffee: time over. my med size tractor has shade, but my big one doesn't. so time of day is an issue during summer. I just had some pine tree clearing done. some pix... those guys are the tree crew, climber and ground rope guy, brothers. the climber was awesome. he nailed all just as I wanted it. :) I also have an evergreen shrub, large I grew from cuttings I took many yrs ago. the trees and it keep me connected to the Evergreen State. :D

    good to hear from you. I left the Pac NW, but I still retain a real :heart: for the area. I like a good TX steak... but I also like and have a lot of salmon. we have one place local to me that has 2nd day fresh salmon flown in. in store today, in Atlantic yesterday! !

    have a good day...

    I try to collect Swedish chimneys and let them dry at least a year. It’s amazing how fast they take off. 0C3C539F-5E8E-4D53-9E9F-093D1AC3FB1C.jpeg
