Well…he’s off. Earlier in the year I told you about our son, Buck. He was put on alert when the Colorado wild fires were raging but didn’t get called out. Today he got a call and will be heading to somewhere in the northwestern regions of the United States.
He has five hours to be in Des Moines…it’s a two hour drive.
He’s expected to be gone for two weeks. That’s not much time to wrap up things and make arrangements but he’ll manage. He’s got a great gal there to help him.
If you’re inclined, say a little prayer for him and his crew. It’s his first time flying…his first time a long way away from home on his own…his first wild land fire experience…. and it’s my first time having to worry about all that.
