Seven days ago the Bear Fire was approaching the Latitudes & Attitudes headquarters located on the Bitchin Ranch in what was once beautiful Downtown Berry Creek.
Unfortunately, they lost everything. Bob and Jody’s home is gone, along with 75 years of memories, the Lats & Atts warehouse of books, back issues, and more. There is a gofundme donation page setup to help them get back on their feet.
This is a video that was recorded by a camera that was left on and connected to the internet after they evacuated – it captured the fire as it approached their home.
Latitudes & Attitudes is now being remotely operated from a hotel in the Oroville area. Thankfully, the staff “remote offices” are located around the country and are helping to pick up the slack. There is good news, though:
THE MAGAZINE WILL BE ON TIME FOR THE WINTER ISSUE!
It’s a very special issue, with two complete magazines. The Latitudes & Attitudes Winter Christmas/Chartering Special Issue, and a separate magazine titled “International Boat Show Spectacular” which we are creating to help those who wanted to go to the boat shows but were unable to due to the pandemic.
