The bad,Down here in Floyd New Mexico we have a brush fire raging out of control. My house is burning down, built by my grandfathers hands. The house is gone . Nothing salvageable. The unbearable; my 4 prized posessions and friends are dead . 4 registered quarter horses, One my grandfathers last brood mare and her colt :bluecry: All gone from smoke inhalation or burned to death. :cuss: The damned state police wouldnt let me though to my horses. So i got in my CTD and cut across 5 miles of burnng fields, through fences, To get to my horses. I had to put the last 2 down and then get out. :bluecry: And this fire originated in the white sands melrose bombing range aka usaf. Sorry for ranting just so utterly upset and ready to just go get :drinking: so i can forget it all. thank yall for listening
:wall:

Man, that is horrible. I'm glad you are alright, and hopefully insurance helps cover your losses. That is really terrible though. Let us know if you need anything.

Sorry to hear about that. When you were talking about driving through flames, I thought of that scene from Dante's Peak. Where the suburban drives through the lava and melts it's tires. But seriously, I hope everything works out.

sounds like you need to make a call to teh media explaining how they failed to let you on your property when it was "still safe"

btw, who did you "recklessly endanger"? you complied wiht what they told you , tha tyou could not go down that road to your home, never said anything about blazing your own trail.

The police tried to stop me , And followed me for a lil bit,offroadin it then followed me into the fire and since they were in persuit of me i endangered their lives . :rotfl: they told me to turn around and leave so i turned left and went through the fence.

Yeah on a later thought Driving in the flames with ALOT of Fuel was a horrible Idea :bad: Great news, Wonerful News. Cannon Air Force Base Released a Statment and it goes something like this.


The Fire in Roosevelt County is soley the responsibility of Cannon AFB. The Fire originated from a misfired missile on the White Sands Bombing Range. Any structural or fence damages will be covered wholey by The USAF.

I copied this out of the paper and summerized it so work with me.


I am so relieved and happy . Although my horses cannot be replaced i respect the USAF stepping foreward and taking the blame. I bet uncle sam is doing this to CAFB :twak:
