    Oil changes on my truck at the dealer run around $300.

    Or I can go buy my filter for $16 and $120 for my oil .

    Totally worth my time and investment!

    The worst part for me has always been getting the oil out of the bucket and into a container for recycling/starting campfires/whatever.

    Taking the bus to work this morning as being outside / exercise is not recommended. Going to be a pile of sweat when I get in. Also not supposed to run A/C and all the windows on the bus are closed.

    Here is another amazing video from one of the aircraft on the fires up here. We had two almost clear days but the smoke has rolled back in today. :eek3:

    Crazy when you think that we are in a global warming crisis which in turn is causing these fires which in turn is adding massive amounts of carbon to the atmosphere. We are doomed.

    To be fair these are sub-boreal forests and they are naturally fire dependent to repopulate sooooo they have been burning and regrowing for hundreds of years.

    Yeah I learned while out west this summer that fire is a natural part of their lifecycle. Our climate warming seems be compounding the burning though. It seems every year lately has been a record setting fire season.

    Last year was record-setting and this year is about #4/#5 so far. Part of the blame is on doing such a good job in fire prevention so essentially a lot of the forests are full of dead wood that has accumulated over the years which makes the burning now even harder to deal with. Combine that with two summers in a row with zero precipitation and it was going to happen.

    It all depends upon the size of the fire. If it is too big and it burns the cones, there's nothing to repopulate with.

    You are right if the fire is to hot it will sterilize the soil basically burning all the organic material and nothing will grow in these areas for a few years but it will come back just takes a little longer but again that's nature.
