Crewmembers and Miscellaneous Pictures

In the last 8 seasons that I have fought fire I have worked and been friends with a lot of great people.  Part of my love for firefighting comes from the bonds that you build with people when you work with them.  You often spend long hours together and these people become a big part of your life.  Most of the friendships that you build last over the course of your career.  Below are  some pictures of various crews and people that I have worked with fighting wildland fire.
