J…..please do not feel we would get tired of your questions,,,,,,,never. The reason I mentioned the archives is mainly because the list changes and people come and go so you might find a better answer there. I am really not sure when Abs started this Family Said list. I think it was about 3 or 4 yrs ago. I had been getting in trouble on the They Said list (not really trouble) just annoyed a couple of people so Abs decided family needed their own list and here we are. The best summer yet, with more people and even some FF checking in…some of us do post to the “other list” sometimes and they are always nice to us. life is good.

As far as chasing your FF and finding out where he is…..that is tough. Unless there is a web page for his outfit or some other source you probably are going to have to rely on him calling when he lands. They move around a lot…There are way more national forest pages than there have been in the past and also a lot of the fires are getting their own pages so maybe if we contacted the web page people responsible for the individual fires maybe we could talk them into adding info about the crews on the fires. We don’t particularly need individual names just the names of the whole crew….. like Hotshot Crew Red… or Lakeside WT1.(water tender)…(not a real name) just a thought. By the way, the fish I bought yesterday were waiting for me to get home this pm and were just thrilled to see me. I told them all my adventures thru the day and they just floated around and were so attentive. yep I’m losing it….now I’m talking to fish.
have a good night and stay safe


As this Ab recalls, you and others were writing in with good questions and there seemed to be a need for family members and firefighters to talk on some parallel threads, so we decided to provide the familysaid forum. I don’t recall you being annoying.
