I thought all is well, but it's not. Fire is headed toward my development, Tesero del valle. Everyone is evacuating. Waiting for my wife to come home, and take valables out. I got my pictures, firearms, and ammo out. Wouldn't want to kill someone by accident with all my ammo at my house. Need to take photos of the whole house, and go to my mom's house in the valley.

if you can, try video taping the in and out of your house. Sometimes a video camera can catch things you dont think of.

Hope everything works out for you and your family. It's great that you have plenty of support from your family which are fairly local to you.. but let me know if you need anything.

Remember why you sold your EOTech? You ain't gonna shoot nobody :)

funny thing, i don't care about my personal property. everything can be replaced, except for my family.

Man, my parents-in-law are on the move again. fire is in Rancho Bernardo where they were at.15 is closed so they can't get up here. Any word on APS?

i think the fire is about 8 miles north of me, when is strong at 25-30mph going south right toward my house.

air is all smokey, and i can totally smell it. if you stay outside too long, your lungs start to hurt.

time to drink a beer, and wait for my wife to come back. brother is down the street, but sheriff won't let him in.

That is why I was so pissed at my PILs. They were told by two fire fighters that lived next door to them there was a good chance they would have to leave and they would not be able to fight the fire till wed because of winds. They waited till the last minute and my stupid *** father-in-law went back up and almost got stuck. Took almost 6 hours to get back to his hotel in what is normally a 25 minute drive.

10-22-2007, 1:45 PM
Good luck, saying a prayer for ya.

You be safe . . .

baby is home with grandmother. it's not like the fire is right over the hill, but if they don't detain it within the next 24 hours. bye bye home.

10-22-2007, 1:53 PM
thanks nayt for the prayer. i can say being a christian, personal property including a house is not important.

10-22-2007, 1:57 PM
Where are you at Pete?
Is it the Buckweed fire in Canyon Country?

You be careful, I'll keep you and yours in my prayers.

10-22-2007, 2:01 PM
valencia, tesero del valle. right in between the canyon country fire and castaic fire.

10-22-2007, 2:02 PM
You have your priorities right! All that matters is your family. Everything else is replaceable.

Good luck and stay safe!

10-22-2007, 2:15 PM

I was just over there working today. Last night we thought we were ****ed too. The fire got with in 1/4 mile of our house at the start, on solidad and sierra hwy. The police and firefighters came up our street and told us that if the fire jumped the road we were screwed and it might be a good idea to think about leaving. We lucked out thow, no jump and it headed away from us. I can tell you what, Its not cool to be on the other side of town today. It was super smokey and im super unmotivated to go back to work in the am.
