I’ve missed you guys lately, I’m trying to get things running
smoothly around here. But I have so much good news. I heard from my FF last
night. It was the first time I’ve talked to him since 8/12. It was so good to
hear his voice. He said that he is ready to come home, unfortunately his last
work day is still a week away, 8/27. Which just happens to correspond with the
day that I go back to school. I just had the most outrageous trip to the
bookstore, I spent $421 yesterday on USED BOOKS! I still am missing 2 for the
fall. My biology class requires 5 books. They had better hope that I learn
something from them! I just wanted to scream! I am trying to figure out what
I can do to pick him up…so far I don’t know when to try to get off work,
which is nearly impossible to do around here, or if I will be in class when he
comes in. There is really no end.
For those of you trying to track your FFs, if they are from the 13 southern
states you can find crew listings that cover the fire, any injuries, morale,
and even their assignments on the southern area coordination site. The IARRs
for the southern region have to be the very best, last time they even gave
details of the hotel and flights that the crews would be coming home on.
go to the website then click on daily crew report at the bottom of the second
group in the left column. Good luck finding your FFs.
