    • Move out here to civilization. We have outstanding community support. I can't remember the last time we laid more than 300-400 feet of 5" that we had to reload. The Amish come out and are more than happy to reload for us as a way of helping out.

        BTW, there's a BIG difference between "butt hurt" and not taking crap...
        Yeah and you are butt hurt. Otherwise several posts ago when I said "good for you if you can do what you say you can" this would be over. But you wait days or weeks like a petulant child and boom like a fresh temper tantrum you bring it up all over again.

        By the way my butt hurt comment above was in no way directed at you or about you. But obviously you took it to heart which speaks volumes.
        Crazy, but that's how it goes

        Maybe it's not too late
        To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

          Yeah - went to a brush fire once (as mutual aid) where the first engine in dropped 1000' of five inch. Come time to pick it up there was the driver, a handful of mutual aid folks, and me. Guess who was the only one who knew how to rack it? At least there were a bunch of young guys to get it up to the bed...
          Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

          Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

            • 5 inch hose while heavier than 2 1/2 or 3 inch hose is so worth it because of flow capacity. It can flow more water than the smaller hoses or it can flow the same amount of water farther than the smaller lines.

                  I didn't make the decision - the LDH was on the ground when I arrived.

                  Possibilities include the size of the fire (about 10 acres - for us that's a big wildfire), and the narrow dirt road leading into the fire scene. Laying the hose kept the tankers on the paved road.

                  In general, we're used to directly attacking a grass/brush fire around here, not drawing a line and waiting for it to arrive. The problem arises when it's time to transition from that direct attack to cutting a fire line. Not many IC's are used to recognizing that point.
