      • Keep a very close eye on the Schneider Springs Forest Fire in Washington State. Models of possibilities were created 40 (forty) years ago, concerning a fire hitting Mt. Rainier from the east side. There are reasons why the Douglas Wilderness was created with NO ROADS on the east side of Mt. Rainer. Caution, Warning, Danger!! The perfect disaster could possibly be brewing. Check out papers (weekly) from the Eatonville Dispatch Newspapers, 1970 to 1982. The Tacoma Public Library is one of the top research libraries in the United States. It’s right in front of the Federal Courts, downtown Tacoma, It was created with help from the United States Military. It holds clue’s in that library. It carrys historical papers (microfiche) about those possibilities of a Mt. Rainier explosion.

        My father was in charge of all security for Fort Lewis Military Army base and the West Coast. Richard H. Wheeler, 101st Airborne…Battle of the Bulge, Voices of History YouTube, Never give up!!

        A team of six (6) was on that mathematics team that did the models for Mt. Rainier. It was sent to Washington DC, when it was completed and the numbers were checked 4 (four) time’s for factual information.

        Stay safe🇺🇸
