Off the Elk Fire

We had a pretty slow day today. We finished fighting the Elk Fire, which didn’t take very long. We thought we were finished, but we were told earlier in the day that we were going to go back to the Couture Fire in Arlee, which is where we’re at now. It looks like we won’t demobilize until Sunday, maybe even Monday. More days means more money. I’m fine with that. I did get injured yesterday, but it wasn’t that bad. Just cut up my shin.

You know what? I’m exhausted and sitting here in my tent is making me more tired. I will write more once I’m back home; I promise.
