Default In some areas, you NEED an in-case-of-fire "bug out bag" !

Hi Glenn,

As you may or may not know...

Eucalyptus trees are DESIGNED to burn!

It's all that eucalyptus oil...

And some Australian trees (like Banksias) release their seeds only AFTER a fire! (So they can benefit from some of that fresh fertilizer from the burnt plants and wood!)

Fire is part of the whole ecosystem!

Now... it's not so bad for us in the cities... Where it's dangerous is in the small towns, surrounded by "bush"... or on the city outskirts...

There's a part of my city (Melbourne), on the outskirts... called the Dandenong ranges...

It's an area on the edge of town, which is a little bit "mountainous"... Because of all the hills, there's a LOT of untouched forest...

I was thinking once, it'd be great to live there. It's very scenic... And you're still not far from all the advantages of a city...

I actually know people who live in that area...

And what I DIDN'T factor in, was that virtually every year, they have to EVACUATE because of the danger of bush fires!

So, everyone who lives there has a "bug out bag" they can pick up and flee with at short notice, especially during the summer months (when a bush fire is more likely)!

That kind of makes it a little less desirable...

Best wishes!
