I always assumed that "vollie" meant "volunteer"...Local Vollie, (you are SFFS correct?)
I live out in the middle of the woods myself and love it. When I bought the place I was aware of the risk, and it's something I live with. I certainly don't want them to destroy the woods to save the woods. If there's a fire, hopefully I can get out of it alive. The house is insured and can be rebuilt. The land will still be there after a fire.
