Still miss it from time to time, but fortunately, we have enough fires in the interface to give me my fix
And BC's don't have to go on doctor calls, unless we want to :D
Understand the full time pay thing! We have a couple of former WA DNR guys with us now. They all loved the work, but the pay and being seasonal often sucks. What area of OR are you in, chief? I lived there a few years, and went to medic school there. A good friend of mine works for Albany Fire.
