  IMPORTANT NEWS FOR USERS ON MT. WILSON AND VICINITY
  "As we all know by now, there is a rain event forecasted
to start as early as Sunday evening with the potential of rain
over several days.  We are not suspending any permits at this
time but want you all to start to prepare for the potential of
that occurring.  We recommend, regardless of what the Forest
Service does, that you seriously consider not to be in areas
that burned during this rain event as from our last event,
it is impossible to predict which areas will get rain and
to what extent.
  "Bottom line is that personal safety is your responsibility
but that does not give you the final say on whether you decide
to stay or not within your permitted area.  The Forest hopes
that you will exercise the sound judgment to not put yourself
in harms way and make that decision prior to any threats
materializing."

  A SECOND LETTER FROM FOREST SERVICE ADDS TEETH
  "...You will need to provide me the documentation that
you are able to provide for the needs of any staff that may
be "stranded" for up to weeks at a time due to lack of access.
Failure to provide such information may result in that
custodial presence will not be allowed if and when your
permit is suspended for health and safety reasons...."
