The Indian Fire of 1975
Los Padres National Forest
Add 20 gung ho, can do, amped up, best of the best hyper driven hotshots who have been convinced of
their own superiority into a surreal and chaotic environment complete with screaming chain saws,
falling trees, men yelling curses, questions and orders, take more, take less, bump up, bump back, move
up, move out, heads up, watch out, clear out...here it comes, sharp tools striking hard rocks,
faster...faster...faster, characterized by disorientation, confusion, thick choking smoke and a roaring out
of control wildfire as background noise. What could possibly go wrong besides everything...or
absolutely nothing? Hahaha!
