I trying to get to the Station Fire, near Los Angeles. My tummy says I should be there, but I know it’s not a great idea to show up completely unannounced. It’s best to stay at fire camp, to be able to work freely with the team at the camp. I don’t want to be a random journalist on the scene — it’s too well covered for that to be useful.
So, I’m waiting for the PIO to reach the Incident Team 3 folks, to confirm I’m OK. If I get the go ahead, well, it’s a long drive to LA from here.
