My pack training rucks were scheduled to start now that I'm back from the Canada fishing trip, but I returned to find there was a 19,000 acre fire north of me that is making it hard to breath. It was still a couple miles from some lakes where they mandated evacuations, and with a wind switch it ran over the whole area and burned up a lot of cabins and homes. I am 20 miles south with nothing but dry forest between us, and a north wind could have it at my door in short order. I'll be running a pump from the lake and hosing everything I can, and moving important items to my son's house another 20 miles away. I was a firefighter for 24 years, and a wildland firefighter for 9 seasons after that, so I am well aware of the potential danger. I don't know how to link things here, but the Interactive Fire Map, Minnesota, Greenwood Fire will get you an up to date look.
