Sounds like a lot of the crews are on the Kenai fire. My husband said they were trying to keep them there for at least 7 days, if not 14, so I’m not sure when he heads back to the lower 48 here. lol. This is his first time in Alaska and it’s ALWAYS been his dream to go, so I’m glad he has finally had the opportunity!
Jess- I was also pregnant last summer while my husband was away doing fires. He missed a lot and it was really hard so I know what you are talking about. My husband hasn’t seen our daughter since mid-May. She has gained 4 pounds since then, is a jabber mouth, and is starting to walk. He’s not going to recognize her when he gets home. She’s gonna seem so big to him.
