Already did. The one looking up the stick is award worthy. Wish I would have been working that night, I sure miss the jobs.

Hey Prez, enjoy the pictures from the convention. One of these days I will sit down and put them all on a disk.

Please allow me to invite you to the group called Unique HazMat Incidents. I will be presenting this at 2009 FDIC and would love to hear some of your thoughts. We are currently talking about some real interesting issues.

It was good to see all the Brothers from your neck of the woods last week in Juneau, too bad you couldn't make it. Consider Anchorage Next Year? AFD is hosting the conference.

Were trying to get our FOOLS chapter set up and I'll probaly be giving you a call for some much needed advice.

Brother Ben -
Good to see all your boys in Juneau.
Glad we had the chance to talk the other day.
Met Bobby in juneau also good contact there.
Still contemplating the whole conversation about getting out - we'll have to see what happens.
Long live the F.O.O.L.S.

Hey Capt.,

Good to hear from you. Were down in gonna make it at all?

Thanks for the comment! I see you are from Fairbanks. I taught a 3-day cardiac workshop at the Tanana Valley Campus last December (for Guardian Flight) and met some really nice people. I've been to AK twice and both times I was struck by how friendly everyone was. Stay safe!

That's what I'm talking about.

Class is going good, it hard, but very rewarding. I was class leader for a week, there is a different person each week. THIS IS THE BEST PROFESSION EVER. Stay warm.

I have humbled you? Are you kidding me?

9-11 "Greater Love Hath No Man" is one of the greatest pieces I've read in a long while. Your ability to describe the feeling inside you is remarkable. That piece humbled me.

I think the recruits really felt what you were trying to explain. And, I really think they know exactly how serious some of us take this question.

It's good to hear from you brother. Hope all is well up there in the tundra. Can't wait to meet up again with you.

Hello.....Hello...............It looks like the Captain is up surfing, huh?

What's up brother?
