Hey Sammi…

All my crewmates are off up north, but I’m down here holding the fort and attending to my ‘real’ job, so it’s lonely just now…I had a very long and animated conversation with my lizard last night…he’s quite attentive too, but he has the occasional tendency to get distracted by a moth.


I think you’re a good candidate for the firefighter SO network we talked about earlier…get to know the SOs of the other guys on your FF’s crew…get a news network going so that if even one guy manages to call out, you’ll all find out where they are and what they’re doing. One of my buddies is doing helitack in Idaho right now…he got time to make one phone call, he called his mother, she called our EMS chief, who told the dispatcher, so as we trickled in to find out news and availability, we all got the news. If all else fails get to know the dispatcher…they generally know everything.
