We took the SMB up to San Luis Obispo to meet with family on T-day. With a toddler along, we were limited to how far we could drive each day, so made a camping expedition of it. On the way back we camped at Point Mugu State Park, right on the beach.
In the morning we noticed a huge plume of smoke to the south/east, malibu was on fire again. While we broke camp, many fire engines raced by on the highway behind our campsite:
We headed directly toward the fire, hoping to get through on the PCH before they shut it down. This was as far as we got before being turned back.
One of the reasons we bought the sportsmobile was to have an escape pod in case of fire. During the last fires in San Diego we were not as prepared for the evacuation as we would have liked. Now we are prepared to just jump in the SMB and ride out the firestorm.
