They had choppers in the air and the Coast Guard on the water telling the pilots what to do. 4 to 5 planes 9 minute laps. Some days they worked from 4 to 8 pm. Scooped at Multnomah Falls on Sunday.

A friendly response to the Malibu Biffer.
If your head wasn't so far up your ass you
Would have observed that the windsurfers
and kite boarders in Stevenson were in no
Way a hindrance to the pilots of the fire
fighting planes. Before you pontificate
To others please clear the fecal matter from your
Eyes so you may have a clear vision of what actually
Transpired when the scoop planes came in.We were
All in awe of the pilots skills and they seemed to be
Totally comfortable with the the handful of windsurfers and kiters.

I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that it may incriminate me.

Funny, I seem to recall The Dangler playing "chicken" with a barge at the Narrows many moons ago (including other extreme kook violations). Sure glad he's changed his "kook status" now! Rolling Eyes

There's reports that this fire was human caused by illegal fireworks. If true, maybe we should be talking here about the idiots who set off illegal fireworks?

Here's a video of my neighbors Wind Mountain summer party with illegal fireworks...

Little annoyed at some of the indignation and flippancy. There are people camped at the fairgrounds that are hoping their houses in Cascade Locks don't burn down while others are playing on the river. Would it hurt so much to put your sails away for a day or just go somewhere else?
