No offense to fine Californians such as Hikermor! smirk whistle grin

I have to chuckle. Before I came to California and met Mrs. Hikermor, I was a Professional Arizonan, casting asprsions at all the Calidamfornians invading our space.

And now I am one....

Hahaha! The funny thing is, just going by the complaints about Californians taking over you'd think that 10 million people per year are fleeing the state! But I think the stats say it's about 500,000 per year. Beautiful state to be sure. And if CA has some problems they're in good company since every place I've ever been has had problems as well. grin

Another take on the current volunteer SAR situation, and the effects of COVID19:
