After weeks of training in the spring we finally get to head to the fireline in the early summer. Seems like fire season used to run about July to September, but these days the rotors are turning from May to October. First up is usually a couple go-rounds tying off some Rx fire at home, maybe a trip or two to the southwest and then heading back to R6/R4/R1 in time to catch the seasonal lightning storms.
