Hi Sammi,

thanks for the warm welcome. Well the DH is actually on a college Type 2 crew ( a bit old though! he just turned 30!)…anyway, we are pretty much used to the separations, he is a former Marine Grunt ( machine gunner), so being apart is nothing new. We now have 2 daughters, ages 4 and 2, and I worry how they are taking missing daddy.

I guess the biggest shock to me is how worried I am getting. I knew it was dangerous, but the sequoia fire is huge! I imagined his first “real fire” to be a little brush fire. Don’t get me wrong, he knows what he is doing, they used to call in the Marines whenever they ran short on hand crews.

anyway, that is us in a nutshell. any tips, advice, etc, is more than welcome!
