We made it to day 13, and now we’re heading home to take one day of R&R, and we’ll be back at it on Tuesday. I’m going to push it a bit by going on this fire instead of back to work, so we’ll see what happens. I’m going to e-mail my bosses tomorrow to let them know, and I hope they understand. I hope they understand.
What a fun time I’m having. I wish I could explain how much fun I’m having. Fighting fires, sure, it’s dangerous sometimes and fucking exhausting, but if you have a great crew, then there’s nothing else like it in the world.
Even though I’m back home and I could write more, I’m not. I’m still fucking tired and after sleeping in my car for the past 4 days or so, my body is telling me that my bed is the most comfortable thing ever and all it wants to do is sleep. So sleep I will.
Tomorrow I’ll be tossing all my expired food and doing laundry. Good night.
