Well the first fire of the year has hit our area. Once again it is outside our door. Not as close as the '03 fires but if the wind changes it will be. This one is about 1/2 mile away at the moment. What does this have to do with mtb'ing you ask? The fire just happens to be on one of my favorite trails which I was planning on riding this evening At least the trail its self wont be affected because it is all slick rock but I can not ride it until they get the fire out. At least now when I do get there to ride I wont come home with ticks all over my pants. The area it is at leads me to believe that it was stated by some f'en idiot.
