[pct-l] oregon fires

The fires in Oregon currently are not near the PCT.  There is however plenty
of smoke in the skies in eastern and central Oregon.
Just finished section B and the skeets were a plenty.  I found that odd
considering most of the seasonal seeps and springs were just about done.
Your situation may change by the 1st of Aug.
