Hoosier, (chuckles, TY!) yes humidty is good to put down a fire IF there is wind bringing it at the right time & no storm brewing. human and machinery working a fire in hot temps is debilitating & humidity is more debilitating to the operator. in most western states off coast line normal summer humidity is in the teens or 20s in daytime.
batteries: if not charged are just more useless baggage.
sox: no wildland FF has enough clean ones if on the line for weeks. for sure the groundpounders want other clean “undies” too, and the right size and fiber content and pray if they didn’t pack “good” batteries, they hope someone did.
TY Hoosier; for sure not laughing AT you best wishes to you and family including the man (God and Spirits keep you all safe & sound) keep the faith Hoosier!
