Hi Dave! I'm in Antarctica and loving this gig. Whole different world (in many ways). I am teaching a lot of classes and would like to do some stuff about reading smoke. We are in winterover and can't receive any mail as there are no flights in or out. Do you have any resources online I can use? My capt. is way into reading smoke and I think I could switch them to Delmar and your text when the mail starts rolling again - I'm gonna hit up Delmar for some gratis texts. Anyway - gotta run. Check out myspace.com/mottyrutt for pics and blog. Let me know how you are doing...

HI Dave, I'm taking a fire officer class and we watched your "reading the smoke" lecture. What a great training. Do you put on classes or training about the reading smoke.

Dave, I attended your lecture in Lewisville, Tx a few month ago. We went back and bought the DVD right after that and presented it to all our firefighter. I have never had anyone tell me about reading smoke and can't stop doing it now! Thanks for doing what you do! Capt. Blain Fairview Fire Rescue
