72. Even suburbanites in Santa Barbara can tell you where to bring your horses: Earl Warren Show Grounds
I don't know where folks go if they live in Santa Ynez Valley, but I'm sure every schoolchild who lives there knows.

I hope those 5 fools survive intact -- and I hope they learn their lesson. Firefighters will do everything humanly possible to save lives and property, but they can and do die themselves and it's wrong to ask them to do so stupidly.
