Looks like a barn burner this year (pardon the pun). NIFC (National Interagency Fire Center) puts Oregon and California in high threat forecasts. My fire lookout tower is in the Red Zone.
Nadin will be in SoCal, and I will be in Oregon. That is a good start in fire season coverage for DU.
I'm in Big Spring, TX, tonight. Hope to make Tucson tomorrow. I got a stopped in a speed trap in Union Town, Alabama, yesterday. Classic shakedown. I was doing 6 mph over in a taper-down area (61 in a 55 zone, coming off a 65 into a 45). No slack at all. The only thing good left in Alabama is Trof! I'll find out tomorrow how much $$$.
