Air quality.

There are 4 fires surounding Sacramento. The Carr fire, The Mendiceno Complex and the Fergunson have burned over 530,000 acres total. I'm hours away from them, but this is what I wake to every morning. Smoke and ash cloud covering Norcal. At least keeping the temps down.

I’m in Southern Oregon and that has been our sun for awhile too. The smoke is horrible to be riding in. Oh well, gotta keep riding

They have a 747 tanker that got here a couple of weeks ago but I haven't heard about it flying yet this year. It flew last year.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

That is what happens when environmentalists cause the mismanagement of the forrest.

Almost all of this could have been prevented with proper management in clearing way all the dead trees and wood but no, the environmentalists won't allow it so you have to suffer.
