Hey Joe... I remember the trip and will hopefully get back there again...... soon, fuel permitting! I retired last year after 35-years and am now living the good life (well deserved I do believe). Still traveling and will spend most of June in Oregon & Washington seeing the view and still taking photos. Good to hear from you and see you are safe and kicking.

we could use your input in our Tactical Building Blocks group. We are on page 3 of groups.
This group will focus on aggressive interior firefighting. We will address tactics that increase your chance of not getting jammed up and cover what actions to undertake if you do.We will cover some big issues as well as small tactical tips
Be Safe
