Fire!

One autumn afternoon you decide to stroll through the sprawling bushlands near your home. Puffing on your pipe, pondering some recent conundrum or riddle, you are oblivious to the outside world.

Your train of thought is momentarily broken by the oddly dark clouds appearing above you. Turning around, you see in the distance a rising wall of black smoke and wispy yellow tongues of flame creeping through the brush.

In a panic, you realize that a brush fire has cut you off from the road and safety!

A steady west wind is pushing the fire in your direction. You glance around for an escape route or shelter, but see only dried out grass, brush, and small shrubs for miles. The approaching blaze is no more than a few miles off, and will be upon your location within the hour. Everything around you will provide fast burning fuel for the fire. You are unlikely to survive in the fire long enough for the blaze to pass you by. Regretably, your smoking habit has negated any hope of outrunning the blaze for very long.

What can you do?
