(Update Friday:4:46am) I just got back from delivering the generator to town. I will have the update from last night and the morning briefing update after getting some sleep. Lots of good info coming about the fire and the trip to town. Check back tomorrow far a detailed account of the fires. The good news for now is that the General Store and Fire Department once again have power. Goodnight All (or good morning to you)
Huge thank you to Jim with the Arizona Virtual Jeep Club who came through to get us a Generator. THANK YOU! You guys are amazing and we can’t wait to see you for your next run to town. Also thank you to the others that called with smaller generators trying to help. Your support is amazing!
We will have a full update later tonight, but wanted to share this video I made. This is a Google Earth tour of the Crown King area with an overlay map of the Gladiator Fire area as of 5-17-12. It is a little choppy and I apologize for that, but after trying 4 times, this is the best I could make it.
Let us know if you enjoy it and we will make more of them in the coming days.
