Re: School's Out (Fire Day)

Yup. I hear they closed I15 as well. Hopefully it's open again by Sunday in the wee hours so I can actually get to Lucerne.

210 and 15 are closed there.
I suspect it will last 1/2 day. Usually they close it when flames are lapping onto the pavement:)
The winds will be sooner and higher than usual on Sunday. I assume you are launching near 8am?

Fred,
I would be far more concerned about the Santa Ana winds. If they continue through the weekend, there won't be any point in launching (note for those not familiar with Southern California-- the Santa Ana winds can be in the 50MPH+ range, and are particularly high around the Apple Valley/Lucerne area).

215 is open.
I planned to arrive at dawn (the clocks may change, but the sun does not care...). Launching begins after we are set up (whenever that is) but the FAA notification for LMRs runs from 7am to 1pm PST. Between 6 and 7 am is plenty of time to launch a lot of regular Modrocs under a pound.
I wonder if the Supermarket picketers will stand out in the 40 to 50 mph wind later in the day up in Victorville?

David,
Ya, but they can also make for some nice hollow tubes at Huntington Beach, Bolsa Chica Beach, etc., etc.. Put the rockets away for a while and go surfing.
(That's one of the few things I've missed since I moved away from SoCal. You can surf here in Oregon, but you have to share the break with Killer Whales and it's hard to surf with your nuts in your throat.)

At least killer whales HAVE to surface occasionally to breath, and you have a chance to spot them. You may not have been paying attention last month, but where my son surfs (down near San Onofre, and near Dana Point), they've had SEVERAL great white shark spottings, to the point where one guy (idiot) even 'petted' one of them. This was around the time the woman got eaten up near San Luis Obispo...
