Long time no see. So I hear Dan's resigned from Hancock Hope. Any guess as to why? Well I'd like to plan another trip down to West Hancock FD in late July/August but not sure who to talk to now that Dan's out. Well let me know if you think that would be a possibility.
I hope we'll get to see you guys soon! Hey, Hancock Hope Response Team is getting organized. Website coming soon! We hope to be able to run more operations and give our brothers needed gear for a long time to come. We're looking for corporate partners to help with funding so we can keep on going. Maybe if you had time someday we could go on an op somewhere together. That'd be sweet... Good times and good work. (Secretely, I think of it as firefighter tourism. Is that wrong?) Longer term, I'd like to get trained to fight forest fires and go out west. Any way, Dan and I are gettiogn really pimped by the prospect of really developing this into a nationwide, respite and support service for our brothers. All indications are that people love the idea, and they want to help. I could go on and on. Dude stay in touch, I hope to see you guys again soon! Tell everyone hey for me!
Those items have been removed. My sincerest apologies-my intention was never to hurt anyone's feelings or smear the reputation of WHFD. I hope this issue is done-although Mike told me there are legal issues taking place-if that's true, again I apologize for getting you all messed up in a little fire-house prank.
