Redding area ??
Whittier, near Los Angeles.
I was in his area in 2007 for a fire near Mt. Baldy - I was going to give him a shout but didn't have a good number at the time.
I was on those fires all around Lake Arrowhead about that time as well. I think we spent 35 days down there.
Good to know he is still kicking around, really enjoyed his posts and picts of bow saws.
I had another look and changed my post. It said he was active on that date which may only mean he was signed in. I went back and looked and didn't see a post newer than 2017 on the first page.
