And so begins the 2009 fire season

With snow. Actually, we got started down in the Ozarks with a month of prescribed fire and a few small wildfires. Now we are back in Custer, with snow on the ground, a broke-down truck, and no clue as to where we are heading next.

The Ozarks were fun. I guess it is a crazy tourist area in the summer, but it was quiet while we were there. Very rednecky, reminds me a lot of the country where I grew up. Putting in fire line with a leaf blower was strange, but it definitely lets your mind wander more than with a chainsaw.

I'll get some pics on here soon, but for now, here is the crew. Yabba-dabba-do indeed.
