    Plenty of good places to fly.  Just go hike and fly.  It’s been amazing flying in Orange County.

    I’d guess that the way this works out is they will close the Forests for a week or so at a whack until something does change for the better.  If you are going to close the Forests, this seems the reasonable way to do it instead of a months-long closure, or a 1-day-at-a-time closure.

    But my opinion (for whatever it is worth, possibly not much) is that given the sizes of the existing fires, and the shortage of resources, I’d not hold my breath that we will be up and flying soon.  But I really hope that I’m wrong.  Rain anyone?  😉  A long light soaking rain.

    There is precedent in contesting arbitrary closures. Meaning no one has to be a mask wearing slave, boot licking serf all your life in the land of the free.

    Sad to see club ” leadership” talking like boot lickers. That’s not American idealism, it’s cowardice.

    “On Monday, a federal judge rescinded Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s shutdown orders restricting gatherings, forcing “nonessential” business closures and directing citizens to stay at home to combat COVID-19. U.S. District Judge William Stickman determined that the sweeping measures violated “the right of assembly enshrined in the First Amendment.” He noted Wolf’s hypocrisy in severely limiting indoor and outdoor fairs, festivals, concerts and other gatherings and condemning a small anti-lockdown protest of small-business owners (whom he called “selfish,” “cowardly” and “unsafe”) — while marching with thousands of non-socially distancing Black Lives Matter radicals in Harrisburg in June.

    Moreover, Stickman ruled, Pennsylvania’s stay-at-home order — a sweeping population unlike any “in the history of our Commonwealth and our Country” — violated the 14th Amendment’s due process rights to travel, association and privacy.”

    Now that they have panicked all the SHEEPLE into wearing mask they will convince them to wear war paint to ward off evil spirits.  Guess what. Most of these SHEEPLE would do it.    Sad country of cowards that have no common sense.

    I just got off a call with NFS.  They expect the San Bernardino Forest closure will be extended through Wednesday, Sept. 30 because of the upcoming heatwave.  Thereafter, it should become open.  A new Regional Order will be posted on their website sometime later this evening.  I asked if there was any possibility that we could get an exception to use the Crestline launch.  Their response was that the closure extension is only for a few more days, so please be patient.

    As a note for those looking at that link now – keep checking. Last time they extended it, it got communicated out late in the evening (well after 9PM).

    Well, it’s official. The San Bernardino Forest remains closed through September 30th. https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd810649.pdf  We need to have one heck of a party when it finally opens back up!
