i got in trouble as a juvi for multiple violations of probation so they sent me to a juvi lockup. i got on the fire crew there. cal fire is the head of inmate handcrews, even the juvi ones. in fact their handcrews are reserved for inmates if i remember correctly. handcrews cut line. we are primarily wildland. its sorta like usfs and blm hotshots. they are a handcrew, but like the best at wut they do. they do both indirect and direct line, where the calfire handcrews are mostly indirect and mop-up. right now i have my apps in for any position w/ both usfs and cal-fire, but i help when i can where i can w/ usfs. im trying for the apprenticship usfs has also, helps me get in to a full time permanent possition quicker. plus a chance on the copters. i love cutting line, but i want to try it all to figure out my favorite nitch in the job where i can be of the most use. im getting my fire tech degree right now, and my emt soon. i prefer wildland right now, something about the unknown when working w/ and against mother nature while fighting fire....its awwing.. maybe oneday i'll try my hand w/ structure, i can get in to volunteer w/ the city whenever i want, i've already been offered the possibility....i just am not ready yet...its funny id rather go against nature who is always unpredictable, then go in a building that more info is known on...nature of the beast i suppose. so where's ur nitch in the world? i saw u wearing bunker gear...any carreer aspirations?

For cool. I'm with ya on the tats. I love them and every tat has a meaning. And yeah something about girls just to stuck on themselves or something. And yeah i notice more every day how much people dont get it. And sadly I tend to find them kinda stupid. And it never ceases to amaze me how stupid people really are. But thats why we got a job so thank goodness for them. So I see your volunteer, you wanting to go paid or what? jw. And explain to me what a hand crew is? cuz i dont knwo or at least not the term.

Oh I'm with ya I love ink too.. so very addicting. I have 3 so far and about to get my 4th in the next month which will take up my whole upper part of my left arm. I'm thinking ill do my firefighter tattoo as my 5th. and yeah I dont know any girl firefighters except the one that works part time with me but dont see her often. I wondering sometimes if the chicks that do what I do are like me at all. Like i dont get along with most girls mostly got guys friends.
So what kind of dogs are they?

Hey sounds like your having a good summer, working fire towers must be wicked. all the fire towers around here are no longer used, some even taken down. It's nice to hear your on track for what you wanna do. Still getting use to my asst. cheif position being in charge and asked all the questions OMG but its ok. Our calls have been slow Mabe one a week or every other week. Our rescue horse is looking much better now she still a little skinney but comming alongvery well. My daughter has been at horse showes every weekend this summer and doing well. Looking at getting her another horse now as you move along in the show world the horses just keep getting more $$$$$ but its a good way to invest $$. talk with ya latter
