My recommendation is that you NOT buy your ticket until he calls you. This is very important. Things may change for his crew and he might not be able to give you much notice. You also don’t want to go dancing into fire camp uninvited or unannounced (however romantic that may sound…take it from me…its not..and it wouldn’t be pleasant…and possibly they wouldn’t let you in anyway.) If he can, he will call. (Man…sounds like “Field of Dreams”)

I just got a call from my husband who is coordinating a group of fallers on the Slims Fire. Another group of our fallers is spiked out where there is little communication. The spiked group sent a message via my husband to ask me to tell their wives NOT TO WORRY. Unbeknownst to my dear faller crew, I am in contact with the wonderful folks in fire camp. I know where the fallers are, and I contacted all the wives to let them know things were fine this morning. We’re also getting a FED EX care package together to send “overnight” tomorrow to fire camp for them. But, unless I knew exactly where they were, and exactly where I was sending the package, that’s not even something I would normally do.
