The FAA has issued another NOTAM closing the airspace around Kagel.

Updated TFR here: http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_8_9495.html

Not any better for us, that's for sure. Somehow, it seems all of So Cal is on fire. My thoughts to all in "the line of fire."

TFR updated yet again. We still can't fly at Kagel.

Once the FAA lifts the TFR, we'll still need the ok from the Forest Service to access both the Kagel and Towers launches. They're keeping us out of the way of their men and equipment. This could be several more days. How about a trip to Marshall if Kagel doesn't open on the weekend?

TFR Lifted! However, as Joe G. predicted, the roads are still closed. The USFS is asking us to stay out while they do more fire cleanup.

Sounds like time to go to Crestline/Marshall, or maybe Lukens.
