I also teach the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in my area. I served 3 years on the CT wildland fire crew and was deployed to Oregon in 1995. I was Coordinator of the Fire Prevention program for the City of Torrington for 10 years. I work with children through the Firehawk Companion program.
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.
