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.
