ES, welcome.

Hopefully someone who has recently experienced your same frustrations will provide timely advice. In the meantime, I’d suggest reading previous year’s FamilySaid archives.

I honestly believe the expansion of GACC website availability (or lack thereof) and our dependence & expectation of normal cell phone communication are both a blessing and a curse. Hit or miss information can increase our worries & concerns about the welfare of our loved ones
In wildland fire territories, there may be no cell service. Remember, even if your BF is in a camp with phones & internet access, sleep may be more important than a hot meal or a shower, or standing in a long line to communicate with the folks back home.
As Dehnert recommended, keeping busy is beneficial during this “no news” time. Expand your horizons; work, further your education, take up a hobby you always wanted to try.
Fall is here; soon winter rains & snow will bring your man home and you can snuggle as he relates tales about picnicking in the woods ;)
