3 others and I were going to ride Lolo Pass in Idaho and had to come up with a plan B. We were nearby and when talking to locals, they said the fires were so close to the road that it can be closed off at any moment.
What frosts me is the goddam US Forest disService will not approve the 747 Global Super Tanker that holds more water and retardant than 5 of the next size down water bombers do. Not only does it hold more, it spreads, rather than dumps water, like a heavy rainstorm.
I'm thinking this is a deliberate attempt to prolong the fires, because there is a lot of money to be made fighting them. Think caterers, water trucks, porta potties, suppliers, et al.
