Ok thanks!

Now another stupid question
Does every rafter section need a baffle even if there isn't a vent from below??

@ AL "Does every rafter section need a baffle even if there isn't a vent from below??"
Yes, the objective is to cool the bottom of the roof and move that heat out, not just provide a path for air to get into the attic above.

I am also assuming that the soffit space is common where a few vents will be able to provide air to all rafter channels.

FG wrapped in a plastic bag also works... though in the one pic I don't see any insulation on the other side of your plastic-wrapped truck line... just the baffle above, am I missing something?

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
