I look up to Rob’s cousin Greg, for many years he’s been working the fire lines for Cal-Fire during the hot summer months. He’s not afraid of 100 foot high flames and tornados of wind whipped fire surrounding him. Today he came up to The Firewood Temple to do some grading for Rob and we talked about the recent fires he’s been working.
He just left the massive Sobrantes Fire outside of Big Sur after working up at the equally big Lake County Fire thirty miles north of here. Twelve hours a day he cuts fire breaks and the only time he rests is when his bulldozer is being serviced. Greg rolls down his asbestos blankets and points his machine directly into the blaze… This too will pass
