Good morning, oops, afternoon y'all. If someone didn't mention it was Friday I wouldn't have known. It's day 10 for me with more to go before heading home.
Most of my Team bugged out yesterday for a bunch of fires near Amarillo, TX. They left a handful of us here in Fort Davis to finish up this fire. I think I'm in charge. The Information Section posted this picture of me giving the Operations portion of the briefing the other day. I'm down from about 400 firefighters yesterday to 70 today. Everyone else headed to the other fires. This one is at 19,000 acres and is static, that one is 60,000 acres and growing. If all goes as planned I will finish up here on Saturday, help with breaking down the camp Sunday, and closing out with the State and County Judge on Monday. Then I get to head up there to see if I can help. My last day should be Tuesday, but I may stay a few days longer if needed. As long as I'm home by Friday and get a weekend off. Martena probably (hopefully?) wants to see a little of me before I leave on the bike for two weeks.
It matters not how good you are if an angel pees on the flintlock of your musket.
