    Default Hats off and three cheers!

    My new Road Trip guide, Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips, would never have been written without the hands-on support and unfailing encouragement of Imbrifex Books. The service they provide to their authors before, during, and after the completion of a project is second-to-none, as is the quality of the books they produce. As a first time writer, I can't even imagine a better experience.

    Hats off and three cheers to Mark Sedenquist and Megan Edwards for creating this wonderful publishing house! Working with Imbrifex has been (and continues to be) both an honor and a privilege. Scenic Side Trips is off to a fantastic beginning. I look forward to watching it grow!

    Default Etymology, please?

    Maybe I missed this, but can you explain the meaning or origin of the word imbrifex? My google search did not reveal anything. Congrats on your high-quality contribution to the world of publishing.

    Thanks, Rick for sharing this information. Now, if Mark and Meg can only make it rain in AZ. Portions of Coconino NF (Flagstaff area) will go into Stage 3 Fire restrictions - Areas Closed until significant rainfall, probably end of June. Also, sections within Tonto NF also being closed.

    Default Rick is the best bet these days, but once upon a time...

    Several years ago, I was on a wildfire in California when one of the local BIA crews did a rain dance at a spike camp I was in. It wasn't for public view -- they just took on themselves to do something about the perilous situation we were facing. We had backing fire on two sides and the main section of the fire had shifted and was heading back towards the spike camp.

    Somehow they conjured up some clouds on a cloudless day with less than 5% relative humidity. It didn't produce more than a few sprinkles on the mountain -- but it was a weather miracle. Put some joy back in the crew I was with.
