Apparently one of our guys has a mango tree that's ripe and just dropping a ton of mangoes into their yard, he started bringing in a bunch of the extras and now we have more than we know what to do with. Guess we'll find out just how many mango smoothies we can drink ...

Also today is my last shift before a bit of vacay. Get off work tomorrow morning, go home, grab my bag, call an Uber to the airport, then I'll be back in So Cal for a couple weeks
You city folk need to learn to can.

Whew, 3/3 shifts in a row with fire.

Smallish rubbish/homeless camp fire in the brush, so just us and a Tanker (the kind with wheels not wings you bear folk), but had to pull 300' of 1¾" hose just to reach it from the road (coulda used a 1" bundle on the end, but I pulled the line, and then the other guys broke it behind me to extend instead of just bringing up the bundle so *shrugs*)

Sounds like they want to remind you to pull the 1" next time. Rofl

Well we don't have any 1" preconnects, except a short 50' stretch on the front bumper, and I was told to grab the Precon (which is only 1¾")

Usually brush play is if can't get it with the short front bumper line, pull a regular Precon (1¾", 200') and then if needed to extend still attach a bundle. *usually* a 1" Brush bundle (especially if expecting to go even further) but it's not the first time I've seen/heard of a 1¾" bundle being used)

Hate hate hate flying on days I get off work. Up at 445 for a bad rollover and got a call at 650 so even though I had relief coming in early it didn’t matter. Barely got to see the gf after a 72 and now I’m stuck in Charlotte for weather and I look like a raccoon I’m so tired.
So yes, I’ll be at the bar.

Ive done some heavy drinking at a bar in CLT thanks to weather. Also had the worst pulled pork sandwich of my life there.

If you need to be stuck at an airport, CLT is not a terrible one. I live very near there and have flown in and out countless times.

Palm Springs is my #1. Ontario is #2. John Wayne #3. Burbank #4…
My airline only flies in and out from HNL via LAX, Ontario, and Long Beach (which that last one is lime a 7am flight, ugh no thanks lol) too bad Burbank isn't an option....

Always the best. I remember one call we turn around and the patients cats are getting comfortable on top of our bags 😹
Well..now we have Monkey Pox in the US.

Yep. That’ll do it.
I heard about a single guy who got it while in Africa, diagnosed after flying back.... did it spread from there??

And I'm officially back in So Cal right now for the next couple weeks. Hopefully Forcey the Bear doesn't get any bright ideas about that 😆
