    I've been getting my wife riled up by calling it a business trip... She's not buying it.

        Gotta love free wireless in the hotel.

        So far, I'm having a great time here. The flight was LONG and CRAMMED and there is no wat that was actually a cheeseburger they served for a meal. Other than that, this is really cool. The new car safety systems class was very informative, and it is one of my pet peeves so I went right for it. He fired different airbags and that definately gives you an appriciationg for them. I also went to the "Company Officer" class and the "EKG for EMT-B" class. The fire officer one was definately geared towards career officers, but it was still informative. The EKG one was VERY informative. All I knew before this was "If it is going up and down, that is probably good." All kinds of good stuff on the agenda for tommorow and friday. Then it is another LONG CRAMMED flight home friday evening.

        NASCAR Cafe was great. Toby Kieth's Cafe was really good, highly suggest it for both food and scenery! I definately lost more than i gained with the slot machines, but i was expecting that anyway.

        Oh yea, be advised, I did see a very strange man carrying a very strange monkey. Maybe around here, that is normal. I don't know. But in New England, people don't just walk around with a damn monkey like it is their child.
        Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

          I went today and connected with some old friends. Lots of goodies. I bought some ESS glasses for shooting (9mm) and got lots of stickers.

          BUT....Only one fire truck? ONE? And it was an American LaCHANCE?!? Ok, I thought this was a FIRE show, not all EMS.

          Oh well, saw lots of Phenix helmet pics there too. And the Henderson, NV Firefighters tried to recruit me and I told them to....well never mind. I tested there multiple times only to get shot down so no thank you.

          What else- Lots of cute girls there, but no phone numbers for Bou. (I didnt ask) The LAFD is there looking for qualifed people as well, but no Brian Humpreys. Damn! Some day we have to do Phillips!

          Ummm....Lots of whacker shirts here. None for me.

          Ok, all I got to report. See you and the airport tomorrow....Bou

            Anything new from the vendors ? Any new and exciting products out there ? Is the show more EMS than fire ? Or the other way around ? I'd love to be there...

            Have a safe one.

              Hey.

              I stayed at the Frontier in a room that was was still decorated like it was 1974. Brutal. I guess for $85 I can't expect much. not even wireless internet.


              We wore our uniforms the first day. We were a little overdressed...

              Display's were ok. I came home with a pair of $2 sissors, and a pocket command refferance. Loved the driving simulator. No whacker shirts for me.

              Went to the Suburban firefighting class, truck company operations for the small department. Both of these classes were very good. Also wildland fires lessons learned, a development course for new ff's, and one other which I can't remember. I took away some things I'll be able to implement.

              As for entertainment, the horse race machine at the Frontier was great. Rented an mp5, and a Glok 9mm at American shooters Gun club, and fired a couple hundred rounds. Rode the newyork newyork rollercoaster, and had a beer (ok 3) at Nine fine Irishmen. Went down to freemont street for a $6.00 steak that was worth $6.00. It re-enforced to me thta you get what you pay for. Ended up down $150 between the slots, blackjack tables, and that damned horse racing game.(its addictive).

              A good time was had by all. Sorry we didn't get to hook up with any of you.
