Just thought I’d see if anyone was around now that fire season is officially here…I remember lurking in this forum before in previous seasons when it was pretty active, and although I was actually fighting fire at the time, I always felt a kinship to the loved ones chatting here. I’m no longer rolling when the fire calls come in, but my boyfriend is, and we’ve already been separated this season. He’s gone right now, and the last phone call was scratchy at best, and all I really got was that he was on a helicopter – and he loved me. That was a few days ago, and I haven’t heard anymore.
I feel a little silly missing him like I do, especially since if I had my way I too would be on a helicopter having a good time instead of hanging out at home, working behind the scenes in fire, and far from the real action.
Anyways – anyone else around? I’d love to talk if anyone is…
