    I was at Jodar / Heil area yesterday about an hour after the Calwood fire started. Went from 1 acre to 7,000 acres in 5 hours, now at 9,000 acres and zero containment this morning. Hard to believe that where I was standing around 2pm was likely burned by 5pm. Seemed so far away at that time.

    Are these starting from embers in the air from Cameron?

    Crazy. Sad to hear Heil was burnt.

    Did the area get any rain last night/today?

    There was a little bit of moisture on the east end/lower elevation of CalWood this morning, don't think it was as impactful as the much needed reduction in winds. That said today above 7K feet or so it's sunny and windy and sounds like this Lefthand burn is making a big run. Definitely shitty developments the last 24hrs and hot/dry returns this week.

    Evac area getting pretty big. And the burn area seems to have 20+ homes in it, with confirmation of structure loss.

    North side of Lake of the Pines at roughly 36 and Lefthand lost several homes. Video of friends driving through a ring of fire to escape was scary.

    Can they just ban all fires in the entire state already? There are too many yahoos camping and not giving a fuck for it to be worth the risk right now.

    Last weekend I camped up high on Rollins Pass, east of the Divide, and it was scary how many campers below us were burning fires. At least 4-5 in plain sight along the road down to East Portal and Rollinsville.

    Hasn't a statewide fire ban been in place for the past month?

    Sadly bans appear to not matter any more. People need to get their authentic Colorado™ camping experience, and that includes a campfire in the background of their Instagram™ pictures while they drink coffee from their Yeti™ mug and show off the latest Melanzana™ hoodie that they bought for 3x retail price from an eBay/Amazon scalper while sitting outside the $120k Sprinter™ with a perfectly functional Webasto™ heater.

    FWIW, the "statewide fire ban" was kind of toothless from what I saw. It was still up to the counties, and there was inconsistent levels of fire ban from county to county, which added to the confusion. When I went to the Butte for Labor Day, I looked into the fire ban and discovered that where I was camping, it was "level 1" and campfires were permitted.

    Campfires piss me off no end. There is absolutely no justification for a damn fire at this point in this type of environment. You really want that responsibility? You don't need them to cook or to stay warm or any other reason of need. Honestly, what the hell? You wanna burn some shit so you can be cool? Knock it the hell off.

    Yeah poke fun at the fake rich. I tend to think that your camper problem people are the dirt bags in shitty pickups and mini vans pulling landscape trailers. Overstuffed with walmart bags full of camping gear and canned food. The IDGAF crowd that you probably don't even notice because they are used to being poor and pitiful.

    I mean what do I know...I only spend 2 or 3 days a week cleaning up after them.

    Cheap beer, cheap drugs, cheap gas, and food stamps fuel their interest in the great outdoors.

    Poking fun at the glampers sounds like jealousy. The real dirt bags you wouldn't even approach because you are scared of them. Seeing homeless and poor people as much as I do frustrates me but I still clean up after they move on. If I don't then the piles get bigger as they think it is a community dump site. Fuck.
