Not much now. About to finish with a FF1 academy and then I have a live fire burn coming up in an acquired structure around middle of June.... We just purchased Scott NXG7 packs, so I have a lot of transitional training to get together for May...

Well, well old man. You still kickin' around. Not a day of service goes by that I don't think of one of the many, and I do mean many, words of wisdom you instilled in me. Many thanks.... And how the circle comes full turn... I am instructing in our local fire academy, something I watched you do a time or two. matt
