It’s great to see some new people here! Welcome
I know I was sure happy to stumble across this board when it was my FF’s first season. This is my third as a FF’s SO. Sounds like some of our FF’s might be up in Alaska together. Mine is on the Kenai fire as well right now. Doesn’t sound like there is much action on that fire, as it is pretty dead. You won’t hear me complaining if they get sent down south soon. That way maybe I can sneak in two days with him before I leave for Costa Rica. And at least his cell phone is actually working on this fire. That pretty much never happens when he is in AK. The last fire we didn’t talk for 2 weeks, except for one 5-minute phone call. That makes time go by much slower doesn’t it?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth. I just got back from Florida this morning. A bunch of my family went down there to see my Dad and celebrate his 60th birthday. He lives right on the beach, just south of Cocoa Beach. It was so nice to relax and get some sun!

Jess, since you asked, I am 40 minutes west of Denver, in Conifer. Drop me a line if you are somewhat close and we could get together. That would be great! The weather sure is awesome here right now. I don’t miss those Texas summers at all. You are quite the trooper for being pregnant, in a new place, and alone. I have wondered what that would be like if it happened to me and I think I’d be a big ol’ baby. But we just have to suck it up sometimes huh? My SO is all concerned and frustrated about me going to Costa Rica for 6 weeks, but honestly, I haven’t been able to drum up much sympathy. ;) It’s his turn this time to miss me and worry about me. I did the math the other day and figured we have only been together 2 months longer than we’ve spent apart. Crazy…

Great to come back and see such an active board!!!
