Don’t you DARE surrender! You’re one of my heroes (I had a hard time riding herd on one FF, let alone as many as you’ve got)! (laughing) Then I look around my living room and realize how much detritus is still in place from the aftermath of my last (several) fires…my couch is untenable because it’s currently got my red bag, assorted rescue gear, and, yeah, about a square yard of batteries on it, getting from my kitchen to bathroom is a logistical challenge because of the narrowness of the path between my line pack, my SAR pack, and various tools…I wouldn’t wish me on anybody else, so I understand where you’re coming from. When I decide I’m hopeless, I just leave…I don’t really have to live with me. That’s probably why my house doesn’t get cleaned. For the record, my line pack and red bag are impeccably organized and ready to go.

Book wise, I highly recommend anything by Gerald Durell…especially “My Family and Other Animals”. Puts family problems in perspective, and does so most amusingly. At least fire-mania is hard to bring in the house…
