SOA 8 day leaving Wednesday. I may need to cancel. MG Charter. I’ve been evacuated from my home in Yreka due to the McKinney Fire. I did manage to take my gear just in case I can go. If you want the spot please call Mark or the Spirit. It’s not posted online. My ride is heading down tomorrow.

Advantage Yreka has is that fire will have to burn downhill to get to town. Barring a wind event that alone will make it much easier to stop if it gets over Soda Ridge, Greenhorn and Humbug. The other plus right now is that fire is about the only game in town for California or Oregon, so getting equipment, crews and aircraft won't be as hard. As of tonight it's still 3 miles away from town, and I'm hearing forward progress has slowed somewhat. Go fishing...no matter what, you won't change the outcome by staying home.

I guess there was rain last night. Thanks Gene.

Good call. Nothing you could do anyway. Hope you have a great trip and your home survives
This.
My dad has been in hospice for a while and I had a trip to Europe. I told my sister that if he passes, dont call me until I get back because flying home early wouldnt help anything. He's still with us, but yiu have to onlybqorry about that which you can actually do something about.
