Forest fire: Use your *&$#&@*#( ashtray!

This weekend I nearly lost my job and home because a bunch of kids were illegally wheeling and somehow started a 50+ acre forest fire in land containing delicate ecosystems that I as well as others are actively conducting research in and millions are being spent to restore and maintain. Thankfully the firefighters,police and community sprung into action and bulldozers and other machinery were made available to stop the spread a few hundred yards from a residential area.

PLEASE if you are out in state or private land set aside as a natural resource be respectful of its designation. Don't litter, drive off the trails, start fires, make campsites, damage vegetation, disturb wildlife, etc. Even if it looks deserted and "no one will ever notice" there is a good chance that real moey is being spent to preserve that area and/or manage the resources. Whether you realize it or not you could be screwing with programs being paid for by your tax dollars, or bordering on broke private organizations.

As a US citizen the most valuble thing you will ever own is the public waterways and lands set aside for our enjoyment and benifit by private citizens and the government. Treat them with respect, they aren't ours but we are borrowing them from our grand-kids.

That shit pisses me off so much. Motherfuckers playing with fire works in the woods after it hasn't rained in 40 days and shit. Or the dumb asses that set grass on fire with there brakes and do nothing about it. After living and wheeling in WA for years i've seen this happen over and over and punk ass little, hat cocked to the side, douche bags, just watch it in aww while hitting there bong and driving off. Sorry had to vent...

You know, I think everyone that ever goes camping should bring one cigarette.

Really.

Cuz, apprently, every wildfire in CA starts from a cigarette butt. They're blamed for so many fires it's amazing. I mean, I should just give up trying to start my BBQ with lighter fluid, or the newspaper chimney. All I need is a Marlboro, some dry grass, and to be inattentive for 10 minutes.

Glad your house is still around!

I am guilty of throwing my cigarettes out while still lit..

Glad I quit though before lighting anything on fire.

To the OP, sorry to hear that happened. Seems to be lots of selfish, disrespectful people who feel they are entitled roaming this earth today.
Yesterday, I saw a dude in front of me flick his butt out the window
I don't smoke but Carry in/carry out is what I follow always!

The only thing that saved the day besides the efforts of the people fighting the blaze was the fact that the guys responsible called it in. That didn't however stop them from continuing to ride for the next two hours while the fire spread.
