Thanks for the welcome Sigmund. Sorry I didn't respond earlier.  I am just now figuring out how to navigate this site.  I started with the US Forest Service on the Big Bear Ranger District in 1969.  Made a career out of it and retired in 2002 out of Redding, CA.  Went to work for CalFire the next day as a crew captain for 6 years until my back had to be fused.  I'd probably still be working for them if that wouldn't have taken me down.  My wife Wendy and I have been working as lookouts since 2011.  We live at Timber Mountain Lookout in our travel trailer. Timber Mountain is one of 5 lookouts on the Modoc NF. They are all contracted lookouts. Wendy commutes daily 18 miles to her lookout in the Lava Beds National Monument (Schonchin Butte). She's hired as  a temporary employee with the Park Service each summer.  She has a 1 mile hike up and back each day.  We had a place in Shingletown, CA for several m years and then sold it and became full time RVers.  We wintered in San Jacinto for a few years.  Our place was in the Heritage Ranch Senior Park.  We sold it in 2015 and now live in Green River, Utah.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
