I'm not too sure what it'll look like up close, but I bet those fires will sure look pretty from the mountains! lol I can only hope to have a chance to see the carnage from the safety of the mountains rather than be down in the city waiting for someone to try and kill me for a little food or my ride. I know a few places in the Angeles National Forrest where I can set up an easily defensable camp and live fairly comfortably with my family for as long as I need to. If things look to be FUBAR for a REALY long time, I'll probably head for the Tennessee Smokies, find a meadow near a stream and maybe build that log cabin I've always dreamed of. I'd love to live in a place that looks like a Bob Ross painting!
