    The Radford Fire, apparently 3 miles from Big Bear, 150 acres now

    I’m more bummed about an ever expanding fire burning up near Waldo Lake in Oregon. The area has tons of great trails I never had the opportunity to ride. For those not familiar with the area, it’s 15 miles East of Oakridge which is 45 miles East of Eugene which is in the Peoples Republic of Oregon.

    I saw a fire bomber flying low from San Berdoo airport, figured nothing good was happening... :-(

    Damn. I guess we rode it just in time. Beautiful country up there, I hope they contain it quickly.

    That is stupid close to the area I like to camp and ride. I am usually there a couple times a month in the summer.

    Interesting place for it to start.

    I think my ex GF lives in the evac area. She said she isn't evacuating, just a "suggestion".

    Stubborn mountain-folk.

    It started right off Radford... wondering if someone wheeling out there dragged their muffler through some dry grass or something.

    10 to 1 odds it was a stoner + roach. Discarded. One each.

    You must not be a stoner. Stoners never discard roaches. There's still good bud in there, man! My money is on a smoker who tossed his cig butt.

    I was in high school 1976-1979. I've seen plenty of discarded roaches. Even saw one start a grass fire behind the sports field at my high school.....not that I knew anything about that. :laugh:

    And you didn't pick them up for future use?! You're definitely not a stoner!

    Waldo lake is the boundary of three sisters wilderness, South sister. I hiked there years ago. Climax forest with down logs everywhere, you had to stay on the trail, no xcrountry here

    She lives with llamas. Guess the owner doesn't want to trailer them if not necessary, I get it.

    Not sure what that says about my choice of women. Cute though

    Perimeter map this am showed slow growth overnight, but more east, skirting the edge of snow summit and onto Fall Line and eastern end of skyline toward bear mountain. Sure am glad I rode Snow Summit, and ended it with a run down Fall Line, last week

    I saw on Facebook tonight that the mandatory evacuations have been downgraded to voluntary. Seems like good news if true.
