    Here is the closest i've been to the dragon. I posted this in the Voly section too. I'm manning the nozzle on a 2.5" during a training burn.

    Whitehall is a nice facility..once you go to a class A burn you never want to go to that fake smoke/fire propane crap again.

    Yes I know it was a training fire and this is likely the disposal stage of the prop, so before everyone P.M.s for being an ignorant idiot I already know that also. Thanks for the thought though.

    Yeah I've been inside LCCC's burn tower, and was highly unimpressed by the smoke and heat generated by the simulation. The Whitehall burn was certainly a great place to train. I had wished that I was paired up with abit better group of people, but none the less I had a blast. We had the perfect instructor set there Aswell. Which made things 100% more fun and challenging inside.

    It is a must to get a gung-ho instructor..I don't know if you've come across a instructor Weimer..big mustache, you couldn't miss him, instructors Tratthen, Berry, and kohl..there's a bunch of good guys in the valley..

    Out at the state fire academy, we actually got to sit there while the adjuncts threw more hay and pallets to build the fire up..saw it roll across the ceiling, and out the door a little..probably the best live fire training experience I've ever had..Honestly, It has helped me overcome the "OMG Fire soo awesome" and be alot more calm and able to focus on the tasks and conserve my air..while studying real fire behavior in a controlled environment.

    When you've been in 1 fake fire building you've been in them all..that awful propane smell, the smoke that neither burns the eyes, or lungs..no heat, no steam...good for hose management I guess but It's not the same when you've been in a nice class A burn building.
