    Default Who worked off those Thanksgiving calories?

    Just wanted to see who else had to "go to work" yesterday and either work off that Thanksgiving meal or miss the big meal all together. Right as I was fixing to take a bite of my overloaded plate, we got toned out to a house fire. Upon first-due's arrival is was fully involved and had spread to the woods. It was up a 30 to 45% slope narrow driveway so it was a "buster" just walking up to the scene. The brushfire that resulted was contained at 30 acres but was hard fought due to the heavy fuel load and steep terran.
    Just another day in paradise.

    Working today. Structure fire, MVC 4 patients, 2 by MedFlight 2 by ground, and a dumpster fire the second time we tried to eat.

    Did 40 minutes through the gauntlet I have set up at the station earlier today too.

    So you didnt actually work the calories off if the run came in BEFORE you ate.

    Thanks for the "war story" though.
