Can you tell us whether Benita is involved in the fire? Our former daughter-in-law and grandson live there but we do not hear from them. Thanks.

I have a co-worker who lives in the Eastlake subdivision east of Chula Vista, and he has received a "reverse 9-1-1" call to be prepared to evacuate. Benita is just north of Eastlake. That's the best I can do at this time. The east county fire is at the Otay Lakes area.

The authorities are asking us to stay off the freeways to leave access for evacuees. They are also asking us to limit cell phone use due to bandwidth issues with emergency frequencies.

The worst is to the north of the city. Ramona, Poway and Rancho Santa Fe are being evacuated now. Del Mar is being advised to evacuate, but is not mandatory at this time. They predict that the fire is likely to progress all the way to the coast.



I am concerned for CarolnJim. They live in Canyon Country.

Interstate 8 is closed in both directions at Buckman Springs Road.

Interstate 15 <strike>is closed in both directions between Rancho Bernado and Lake Hodges</strike> has just been reopened.

Interstate 5, while "open" is very crowded.

The ranch where I lived on Black Canyon Road, NE of Ramona in the '80s and is still owned by a friend of mine is well inside the map of the Witch Creek fire. I hope the structures didn't burn, and I hope she's OK.

Either I am mis-hearing the radio report, or it is changing by the minute.

Only the rest area at Buckman Springs Road is closed, due to no power or water. The roads are open.

Interstate 15 is closed from "The Scales" (near the Riverside County line) to Mercy Road/Scripps Poway Parkway.

Hi Fred

Thanks for thinking of Jim and I. We are really OK. We are in the Sand Canyon area in Canyon Country, completely surrounded by dry brush and hills, but it hasn't happened here yet. This is the area that a couple of years ago was hit so bad.

But other areas of Santa Clarita have really been hit hard. We have been staying off the roads

Wow, I haven't watched the news for weeks and didn't know about any of this. Thanks for posting the thread and updates Frederick.

Gina, glad you're on the road and getting on out of there.

Hope everyone else in these areas are OK. I've always thought of the Scamp since I bought it as kind of a piece of an emergency preparedness plan for our family in case we had to evacuate. It can be ready to go quickly and gives you a shelter if evacuated. Wasn't thinking we'd see this in action though any time soon.

Be safe out there gang, and if you're in one of the affected areas, I'd follow Gina's lead and not wait until you have to go.

As former Californians and San Diegans, this is both scary & familiar, tho I never experienced fire seasons this severe! We still each have family & friends in SoCal, and all who are affeced are in our prayers.

Gina, we are glad you & da Beagles are getting out - take care & stay in touch, eh? L 'n D

Wow, this is terrible! As a former Californian who was raised in Big Bear, lived in Poway and also San Diego I am following this as closely as one can.... from Anchorage Alaska!

For those of you who may not know about this, here is the Big Bear Lake Scanner: (often informative updates on the forum there too)

Greetings from "twmervp" (The Worlds Most Expensive RV Park) in Anaheim California. This place is becoming my home away from home. The manager here actually saved 3 spots for her "Regulars" that she knew were coming down. I didn't even need to ask. So far tho, there are 4 of us here from the mountain.

I am not worried about expense, insurance will cover it on my loss of use thingy on my home owners insurance, including meals.

They did the reverse 911 in my neighborhood with voluntary evacs, but they also closed all the hiways to uphill traffic.. whats THAT tell ya? "You can leave, but ya can't come home".. arrgh.

Had I gone to work this morning, I would NOT have been able to go home to get my dogs, who think this is just another camping adventure.

So, my reason for buying this trailer has come to fruition.. it is an escape pod, and a comfy one at that. GETTING it here was a new adventure in towing.. from 5k feet down to sea level, 12 miles of windy road with gusts up to 75 mph, they are saying. I crawled down at 5-10 mph as the lead trailer in a cluster of horse trailers, RVs and other travel trailers. Cars were fine with that and politely went around. They knew.

I really am not worried about losing my house, the closest of the three fires up there is still a few miles away with the wind going AWAY from Crestline. We have the best fire crews on earth here.. I have every faith they will save our homes.

C&J, I thought about you all morning.. thinking you were off in the Casita .. ain't it grand to have such an option when it's needed???

BOB????? Bob Starr lives south of Lake Arrowhead.. I haven't been able to get ahold of him. Kurt is OK, he lives on the opposite side of the mountain.

Gina and others- Been thinking about you all day and wondering if everyone was okay. I have seen bits and pieces on the news all day but this is the first time I have been able to get to my computer. Gina, glad to hear you got out. Does not matter how much the RV park costs you and the puppies are safe. Keep us posted.
