    Split Rail Fences, Turkeys, and Good Work

    April 13, 2019 | There are wild turkeys calling. In the predawn light we can here their throaty voices, floating to us over the tall, misty grasses of Cowpens National Battlefield in South Carolina. It is the third hitch and Spring has finally begun to show it's colors.

    Thank You Kentucky

    March 30, 2019 | Stretching and groaning, I attempt to rinse out the day before’s workload and emerge out from my cozy sleeping bag into the cold of dawn. As I slowly make the bold transition from dream state to reality, I remember how lucky I am to be where I am, waking up with the wilderness.

    ​Uncharted Territory

    February 15, 2019 | I feel like I’m apart of this really exclusive club and when I’m done, I’ll be able to benefit others with the experiences I’m having now. I’m looking forward to starting the class portion of this program, and then getting out on a fire. I don’t know what that’s like yet, but I hear its addictive, and I’m ready to get to work.

    Where To Begin...

    March 14, 2019 | As crews scramble to load their tools and supplies, sub-freezing temperatures may have numbed your fingers and toes, but they do nothing to slow the thoughts bouncing around in your head – Where are we going again?  Did I remember toothpaste?  Can I do this?  I can do this.

    An Ode to Mud

    October 18, 2018 | As children, my brother and I dug an immense dirt pit in the middle of the sea of dirt that made up our backyard. Combining this feat of excavation with a rapid flow of fresh water from the hose created a gritty, squishy, hog-wallow,
    offering hours of entertainment. The favorite pit activity was mud architecture.
