My last day on the fire line

I'm retired

I drove home from the Thomas fire on Thursday then worked my last day on Friday. It was a bitter sweet day leaving the fire as about halfway home we got word that one of our own, CAL FIRE Firefighter had died on the fire line that day. I had a difficult Thursday night and Friday morning thinking about how his 2 y/o daughter will never see her dad again and his unborn child will never meet their father. I thought about the many holidays, birthdays, family reunions and so forth I have missed. The phone calls from your daughter telling you to go tell the fire that you need to come home to see her. While those were some difficult times on me and the family I did eventually always come home. While work is out of the way but the holidays are here so that is taking all my time. As soon as the New Year gets here I can start to focus on the preparation for my hike. In the mean time I try to maintain my current conditioning by walking 4 miles every day.
