It’s about 7pm Wed here and I just got a call from one of my kids. They are assigned to the east side of the Mineral Primm Fire northeast of Missoula, Montana. Rattlesnake Wilderness. They are assigned with the Redding Shots. if anyone is looking for them. I asked if the phones were ready in camp and they said no….not yet. All the fires over there are in such remote area with dangerous terrain. they said it was work, eat, sleep. That’s it. Fire is about 5% contained which means not much……. again today we are socked in with the smoke. There are lots of people having asthma start up and most everyone I see has runny noses and watery eyes. Wonder if we should start wearing red bandanas…
