Ahh, the good old days...
I served two fire seasons on Orleans Mt. (northern California,on the
line between the Six Rivers and Klamath Forests), 1976-77 or 78(it has
been awhile) and a short time on a verry tall, very skinny cab near
Friendship, Wisconsin about 1968. After the Orleans lookout job I was
the recon plane observer for the next season. Hot stuff thereabouts!
