Hello to all of those here in the Nation... It's great to get a chance again to post something in here. Life goes so fast these days that it seems like there is never any time for myself, until now... For those of you who don't know me, I am a 33 yr divorced father with two wonderful kids, ages 6 and 5. I am a probationary firefighter with the Moab Valley Fire Department here in beautiful Moab, Utah. I have the most wonderful girlfriend a guy could ask for, and she came along right when I… Continue

Hey all, well, just another day here in beautiful Moab, Utah. The only thing that seems to be going rite for me these last few days, is that I spent a great day with my son yesterday. I am torn between my career as wildland firefighter, the woman I am currently dating, my children and a new lady that I have met through my son's soccer league.

For those of you who don't know me, and that would just about cover all of you, my name is Jared. Ifyou look at my profile pic, that is me on… Continue

Greetings to everyone here on FFN. This is my first posting. I havent had as much time as I would like to spend here on this great site. My posting here has to do with some of the hardest decisions I have had to make in my life in quite some time.

I am going though a divorce and had left the state of Utah to move home back with my parents. Well, I am back in Utah, closer to my kids and have just recently been able to be with them again. I was all set to return to my position as a…

Will be in Moab sometime during the first couple of weeks in June. Maybe we can finally get together and put on some training. We just have to discuss topics and I may need a ride from the Big Bend Campground, assuming that it will be a night training class? I would have to email you the class handouts ahead of time for you to make copies prior to the class. Stay in touch through my email, mschlags@gmail.com Take care, Mike

Hey Jared, I'm proud of your accomplishment after completing your training and getting successfully voted in to the Moab FD. Good stuff brother and a wonderful start for your career. I am planning on being in your area this coming June 2010 and would like to schedule a class for your department when I'm in town. I will be in touch with you prior to the trip with more specifics as far as dates. I also need to send you some subject matter to help you department decide if they are interested in the training. I've made several thousand dollars in the past but for you my friend, my charge is a cup of fire station coffee... maybe a tee shirt... lol

Talk to you soon,

Jared- I like the Park City area. Traveling in from Florida it's a big deal to set up a trip and stay the week. Don't have the luxury of trying different places each weekend. Have done Alta Snowbird as well but I need a town, good lodging, restaurants etc.

What are you doing the week of Feb. 6? Check out www.firefighterskitrip.com Am trying to set up a firefighters ski trip to Park City. Response hasn't been great yet but am trying. Have a classified ad in Firehouse.

Utah is my favorite place to ski. I just created a new group here on FFN, SnowSkiingFirefighters and thought you might be interested in joining. Would love to have you.
