    I apologize if it seems I’m using “military speak”. I will use plain English. I made an assumption, my fault, that these were pretty standard and recognized phrases, such as neutering, Vet, etc.

    I did not post who “ They are”, as I didn’t think the average EMT on here would be interested. You seem to have done some of these things Overseas,so I just made a comment about it. Rest assured,it’s a legit company.

    Thank you for the welcome.

    What to bring: Think a 24 hours shift x 7. Bring Clif bars, small snacks, a pillow, extra socks, undershirts, boxers, etc.
    After storm weather: hot, humid, raining, mosquitoes everywhere, and if the power is out it can get miserable quickly.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. My problem now is packing everything. Currently have a large duffel, sleeping bag sack, helmet bag, and a small backpack. Trying to consolidate everything. May leave the backpack but I really would like something with some essentials I can take with me going out on flights.

    Do you have a compression stuff sack for your sleeping bag (I attached the granite gear one that I have that is easily 10 years old)? Can you attach your helmet to your backpack?
