    You running your own equipment? Interesting, did not know there was private equipment fighting fires. Stay safe!

    NAPA COUNTY, Calif.—High on a ridge in Northern California, 68-year-old Ken Edwards finessed a bulldozer up a rocky slope to uproot a tree while, 10 feet away, a manzanita shrub went up in flames.

    As the state’s wildfires burn more ferociously and break out simultaneously, stretching state resources thin, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire, is growing increasingly reliant on contractors like Mr. Edwards to perform one of firefighting’s most critical tasks.

    This fire is a monster, bearing down on hundreds of cabins/homes in the Pillsbury Lake area. I don't think we can stop it.

    .....go out and make this season the best season of your life. Ski that line, take that trip, slide that rail, make that leap, live for the moment, and make memories with friends that’ll last a lifetime, because as a great man once said, “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when you do.”

    Thanks! Yes, the boys (Rowberrys) have been doing it for a few years. I am the perfect person to run a chase truck - retired. I can go at a moments notice, help with repairs and take orders. I drove truck for them in North Dakota. Great guys.

    On day 25!
