On Monday morning our neighborhood was under voluntary evacuation due to the wildfires. Sunday night, I drove up to Ramona to load items from my brother's house as he was in the danger zone. I had to consider what to load up of our stuff, as well as those items belonging to my brother.
On the other hand, I couldn't stand the thought of evacuating and leaving 3 Paramounts behind....
So, I loaded them on top of the boxes on the cross-bed rack. It worked pretty well.
I had to leave my Gitane and Nishiki behind, plus I found room for my bin full of Campy stuff. One Paramount and my Raleigh Pro were already at my office/shop, where I now have all the items stored. We are staying at a friend's house to the south.
We were able to get back today to pick up some other items, but we could not stay.
It appears our area will be OK, though that could change with the wind. Other nearby areas have been allowed to repopulate, so I am hopeful that tomorrow will be the day for us.
