Hahaha..Mountain Biker, you would think that, but my family is invested in wool and Sorel boots. We have plans when we are up here, where to meet if there is a flood, etc. Nothing for forest fires, or if they need to get back up here. My elderly parents live in town, and I worry about them as well. They would be ok if they were left alone by outside influences, but wouldn’t have water. My kids know the secret route to start walking but from school they wouldn’t have equipment to get home…weather would be an issue for sure.
