Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Saturday, October 2, 2010


I got home from my little fire the evening of the 29th so spent all day the 30th kind of resting up and cleaning up my gear to get ready for the next go round. The gear is clean but not packed yet but that will be easy when I get around to it. Yesterday we went for a little ride to look at the leaves on the mountain. They were beautiful but have changed rapidly and will fall soon so if you wanna look do it quick.

Today is our 41st anniversary---Where did the time go????

At the end of the trip we stopped by my Mother's old house to see how the construction is going on it---it'll look pretty much the same but the inside will be quite a lot different.

Oh yeah---I also looked at the Twitchell Canyon fire but it was well behaved yesterday with only internal smoke showing---lots of progress toward putting the south end down.
