You should be able to creep along in stop and go traffic for over a day!
I'm stuck inside today watching them fight the gap fire which is about 1.75 miles from my house currently. Tankers flying very low overhead. Too smokey to be outside. SMB loaded and ready if the need arises. Photo albums and personal papers onboard.
Good to hear you're prepared just in case. We have some haze here in Ventura, but come on south if you want to get out of harm's way. I did notice the 101 northbound was crawling slow, so I expect the same for the souhbound, at least between Santa Barbara and Summerland. I don't have room in my front yard for my SMB let alone another one, but there's plenty of room on the street if you need anything.
