GAP Fire north of Goleta...now burning....
I spent two hours on the ridge watching Winchester Canyon burn yesterday, filming, taking photos, watching the winds and smoke to see the direction...would it hit Dos Pueblos? All livestock was moved to a safer part on the ranch...
Liquid Militia and K38 warehouse stomping grounds, my Jet Skis are there, if it blows up I'm rushing up there to tow away the rig and gear as fast as I can..but I doubt it will jump that far west....anyhow the ranch is where we had our Liquid Militia Team Weekend......Pablo has moved all vehicles and important belongings yesterday, now on the ridge watching the fire line coming..my students from Cal Fire this past month are fighting on the ridge south in San Marcos, getting Text messages on the status....I think DP may have a burn behind the ranch, but if there is a sundowner, possible that some of the DP homes may burn down canyon....it's a waiting game now.
5 homes were saved by Cal Fire 'Steiner' and crew scrubbing brush, didnt' think the Winchester homes would survive, but they did, thanks to their efforts, they are angels for many right now...God Bless all working on this fire.
Photos taken at 8:32pm on iphone...some flames are 200-300 feet high...
Nature is cleansing now...
Let's see where tomorrow begins...

well Pablo got the call for high alert, he's packing his truck right now...next will be evacuation...so I guess I'm going to leave and go pick up my jet skis now...better safe than worry about it...ugh.
The firefighters are doing great things there...pray for thier safety, they are the real angels in the line of fire..

So far here are the pics I've uploaded from Rancho Dos Pueblos where K38 is warehoused and Liquid Militia our clothing brand. The crews have been working really hard, a CAT was brought in and cut new a fire road and was sprayed with retardant. I cooked for 50 firemen, and we set up their camp at Liquid Militia Beach. Today a command center was set up on the ranch, its just gone crazy up there...
