    Default Can you believe this?

    I recently recieved a news flas on my alpha mate that 80 or 90 Federal Firefighters were fired, for not keeping their camp clean in the middle of Grizzly Bear country. Just from the info I got it seems stupid that out of that many firefighters there was nobody there who knew about hte dangers they were imposing on themselves. If anybody has any more info please feel free to fill me in. Afterall I am the first to admit I apparently only have the partial story.
    When the defecation hits the oscillation I'll be there.

    I've been in Yellowstone during the last couple of weeks where it was reported on the Little Joe Fire some Type 2 handcrews were dismissed for not properly securing food items. Might add, they were given one warning about not clearing the camping area before they were dismissed.
