The air filters should help with the particulate part of fire smoke, but if the smoke gets thick enough that youâ€™re getting CO, they wonâ€™t help with that.
On the circulating list idea…there are already a few of us who have exchanged direct e-mails and addresses…Ab was very nice about forwarding the first direct e-mails and weâ€™ve taken it from there. Iâ€™d have no problem with putting up a brief bio etc, but I would like to second Sammiâ€™s caution about getting too specific with personal data: Iâ€™d suggest no names, no locations more specific than a region (i.e. Northern California, Central New Mexico, Eastern Washington), no crew names, and no easily trackable lines of work (If I told you what I do for a living and my company name, a moderately resourceful person could turn up on my doorstep…and I donâ€™t like that idea).
I hate jogging with a passion too…Iâ€™ve got squirrly ankles which makes jogging just an awful experience. I found that once I got into a good exercise regime it made me feel really good…especially when I was alternating aerobic and weight training.
