Steve Garro Speaks: Pure Genius

My friend, Steve Garro, maker of Coconino Cycles, former Hot Shot, and current Flagstaff Live cover-boy said something absolutely genius today on a mountain-bike forum we both frequent.

I think it bears repeating (and repeating, and repeating) until it becomes policy.

"I'd like to see fires banned EVERY year on a set date. June 1st, for example. Forest-wide. If you are cold put on some clothes, go to bed, or drink more. Hell, I'd like to see a permanent ban on fires in a 20 mi. radius of Flag year-round. We have to live here. If we lived in Kansas and people could start tornadoes, everyone would want a tornado-starting ban around their house."
