Great Forest Fire article

This is a great article about first-hand experience with forest fires.
It’s a two part article. Here are the links.
Many times people move to a house in the sticks and think that’s it. They’ll never have to worry about anything because they “already bugged out”. Wrong. First, wherever it is that you live, that place can no longer be your bug out location. By definition a bug out location is the place where you go when your main place of residence is compromised, so it can’t be both at the same time. Second, living in the sticks doesn’t mean bad things can’t happen. There’s a number of things that can go wrong forcing you to either evacuate or rearrange your lifestyle due to personal circumstances like sickness, family, employment, etc. Forest fires are a good example, and these affect a lot of people every year. As always, a bit of preparation goes a long way.

Yes sir, if you live in the forest, be a very good idea to have an underground shelter where you can escape incineration. Air filtration would also be highly recommended - air is the number one survival priority. Forest fires do a lot of damage and without a concerted effort, burn for a long time. Research the Peshtigo Fire for example to see what can happen.
