- Investigated area of fire I noticed happening last night between Towpath Rd. and Highway 406
- While investigating, observing the hollow area that seemed to lie beyond the otherwise apparent forest and noting the overpowering smell of something burned, we almost took a nosedive off the side of the road and into a creek lying a good distance below the level of the road
- 30 minutes later, avoided near-collision with both a raccoon and a guardrail (kudos to Miklos‘s fancy footwork there; AAPEX Driving Academy served at least one of us well)
- Saw about a billion more kamikaze raccoons while driving (one, dead with its back freshly ripped out… ew, man; leave that shit alone, turkey buzzards), as well as some (live) kitties
So, an eventful night in all, but you might be able to see why we opted to drive around no longer.
