Wildfire Tidbits (1/30/15)
Whatever I am blogging about, I do try to keep up with what is going regarding wildland fires and news in the tanker biz. I’m not even going to try to play “catch-up” in all that has been going on over the last five weeks in this one article. Rather, I’ll touch on some tidbits from the last few days.
If I do nothing else, at the very least I check out Bill Gabbert’s Wildfire Today and Fire Aviation blogs along with Michael Archer’s Wildfire News of the Day where you can subscribe to his 6-day a week e-mail newsletter here.
