Let's hope they are minor and put out fast!
Some Forrest fires going on in MO people may want to be watching depending how they plan to ride into the area heading for ES. And maybe also for rides while in ES.
Though for now not major if they keep them under control and get them out fast, I am wondering about Letter D Hercules-Glades, as last I read it was about 1,300 acres and it is not all that far from HY 160 which is the upper part of the Browns Ferry ride map.
People planning to ride side roads around those areas may want to keep an eye on these.
I just rode HY 160 today over to Branson MO and did not know anything about these fires then, I saw no signs of them at that time.
I read where people as far east as Caufield. MO though have been seeing the smoke and calling in to ask what it is.
I think 125 and parts of 76 are popular bike back roads, so if anyone was planning to ride those may want to watch the fires. I was thinking of riding 160 on Monday myself so I need to watch that area!
Here is one article on them
Says original post was 3:10 PM, I rode 160 about 11 AM or 12 noon I think so may be why I did not see anything then.
