7/31/2003: Burning embers captured

Super picture, UT. Flying over a pretty wide stream would carry the fire where they wouldn't expect it.

Definately looks like a battlefield. Kinda post-apocalyptic...

I see patterns...
of planes landing at LAX.

21 large 50-person tents were destroyed; luckily no one was hurt. Some of the tents were pretty far from each other, but those damn embers just flew everywhere.
Unfortunately I can't post any pictures of the destruction but it was pretty bad. Of course the friggin' desert heat didn't help any either. There were a few porta-johns that were probably over 100 feet from the flames, but just melted right down to the ground.

I doubt there are any plans to install more permanent facilities. And if you think it sucks to use a porta-john in the U.S., try sitting in one that has been out in the triple-digit heat all day!

So here's the big question... can you hold your breath through an entire dump?

Actually the smell isn't too terrible -- either that, or I've gotten used to it. It's the fucking heat that gets to you. On more than one occasion, I've wondered what would happen if I passed out from heat exhaustion while in there, and no one realized for hours.

But Tob, pets don't have BARs to ventilate the premicises.

What is this, WWII? BAR's? Does anyone actually use those anymore?
Tobiasly Saturday Aug 2 02:51 PM
Um, no, we tend to have M-4s these days!

Looks more like a screenshot from Unreal Tournament 2003, actually...

Yeah, I thought it looked like an FPS screenshot at first too. I could almost expect to see a rocket come flying at me from behind that rock!...
