    LMAO!! But seriously though, did anyone ever think that it might be a bit safer just to stay in the rig? Nice climate controlled atmosphere... unless you've got an open cab. Maybe a scarf to go around the 2 hoods in cold weather if that's the case?

    How about leather v plastic pants? Or is that a different discussion?

    My friends say that since I got engaged I don't even wear one pair of pants anymore. I guess I'll really feel the heat!

    Yes it is... the looks and the ribbing the brother gets are priceless!

    PS: Hot pink thong panties against black gear really stands out!

    I put my black pants on first. After that, I don my tan pants which are altered to show "peeks" of my black pants. My nickname is Sassy; can someone explain that

    The trouble with this sort of talk is, eventually, some (unedumacated) Chief will think..."Now that seems like a right good idea right there..."

    BTW has no one from Galls jumped on this? I look forward to the leap in sales for Nomex skivvies and of course more feminine attire for the ladies.

    I wear two helmets (leather), two sets of turnouts (both colors), two hoods, two sets of SCBA. All standard issue. But I won't wear it at my Dept. Tiki bar or over my Company issued $600.00 suit.

    Only one tiki bar? Suppose it is full and there is no more room? One $600 dollar suit? If you wore two suits, you probably would not feel the heat on your legs if you spilled a cup of coffee on yourself.

    While we are on the subject of "two", I take in two attack lines, each from a different pumper, that are each on two different plugs. And yes, I have on at LEAST two full sets of PPE on, with two sets of irons. It can be kinda hard to lug all that around, but it works for me!

    Oh yeah, I take in two TIC's also.

    One with a smooth bore and the other with a fog nozzle?

    No, I'm sorry I didn't specify. I have a "Y" at the end of my attack line, and on the "Y" is a smooth bore and a fog. So that make 4 nozzles that I take in.

    Hey I want in too.

    I like Chicago's idea, and it makes a lot of sense, so I think I'm going to start wearing my rubber boots over my leathers.

    That way, I'll be comfortable, and safe, and my leathers will stay nice and clean to wear to the bar after work. And if I wear two t-shirts, I can keep my "I fight what you fear" shirt clean too.

    Chicks dig guys in clean leathers and cool t-shirts.

    Well normally the hair on my legs is enough to take care of the PPE issue.

    This thread reminds me of the time I had two girlfriends at the same time. Just in case one of them could not perform, I mean work, uuuh, I mean, oh, never mind.

    I most certainly am not at the airport!!!!!!!! And it's not where you go to retire - it's where you go to die!
