    I'm on the west side of Folsom Lake and north of the dam... I could hear the 130's earlier this week tracking up and down to the east (Tahoe National Forest, as Juan noted). He stated that they did 40 flights and about 100 drops on the first day... easy to believe those numbers. Was cool just to see them heading out and returning. Now the run up to and back from Shasta-Trinity (from KMCC) would allow for some coffee time before and after the training drop. Did they actually stage out of KMCC for those runs, or out of KCIC?
