I lost 3 spots I had been into. I have a hailmary available, but absolutely no boots on ground scouting and no idea if there is any water left. Thinking about just staying home this year

Yes, my favorite and backup spots are closed to.  But I was scouting two alternate spots the past few months in other wilderness areas just in case.  So, on to the contingency plan now.  No fires over there.

I just found this smoke forecast:  http://www.lar.wsu.edu/airpact/gmap/ap5/ap5smoke.html

No help to the closures, but it definitely looks good for general air quality through the rest of the areas.
