What years have you had Forest Fires? 2002,
and 2007, I've read about. What other Major ones that closed part of Interstates 75 and 10? I remember being there one year it happened before this and was wondering the year. Did they close the interstate in 2002?
2004? 2005?
or was it another year? Was it 89-92 sometime? or 1998? was it back in the end of 70's like 1975? 1977? or 1983? or 1985? The Hurricanes
are a bad enough Deterrant to Travel, but
when it comes to Forest Fires,you keep away
from them and volcanoes. How's Fishing?
Inland (Freshwater, How About Saltwater How
has Hurricanes affected fishing?
