I'll second your post as well Pete. But I need to disagree about red trucks. Our Deparment went white about 15 years ago and the do look sweet. We do take some ribbing about driving the Ice Cream van, but we reply that it's really a beer wagon. <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> Our website is www.MallettsBayFire.com My helmet is black too!

I don't know about fire engines...
maybe it's the same as for Father Xmas (his clothing is red now, was green before some US soft drink company decided marketing had to do something about it ...)

Small world! <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />I've been with "The Bay" since 1989, how long have you been out in AZ?

I worked as a volunteer at the first triathalon back in 1990 or 1991. Do you know anyone on Hinesburg fire?

I suppose it's better than Hardwick. :P

And Matt, your rigs do look good.

as far as cooking stoves go i highly recommend the Trangia 25 alcohol stove. since its a Swedish military stove i'm sure you can get them cheap in europe at an army surplus store. it burns very clean and you can use vodka, denatured alcohol, rubbing alcohol, etc. whatever is available.

I wonder if you'd consider stashing bulk food at the fire house; city hall, members homes, etc?
