    Texas A&M fire school

    I just spent 3 days at College Station the following are some pictures i took while moving thru the projects ..bear in mind this guys are all volunteers from the 4 companies within our facility who volunteer as firemen , medic and rescue people.

    Top picture is where one of the boys lost his hat as they went up to make valve closure, we train so those things happen while we are trainingg and not during the real thing, the fire are hot nfire: and the scene is real , man has control of the fuel unlike a real fire where it is out of control; our job is to get it under control and isolate it.without anyone getting hurt.
    Second picture is wher the man lost his hat, the same fire as pic 1, the 3 rd the burn was aborted due to the fire getting out of control, the ops chief called it off, so no one would get burned .
    The fourth shot is one of a TEEX employee what controls the fuel to the fires,and tries to keep us from frying, her name is Andrea.

    Nice Pics Ben

    Sorry I did not get a chance to meet you on this trip, we will get together sooner or later and get some fishing in, I still have an ultralight reel waiting for you as well.
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Nice looking hat

    I do still have an ultralight in the package waiting for you, I will try and get it to you sooner or later.

    I love the mitchell reels, I have the original 300's as well as the new anniversary edition mitchell 300.

    I also have some spidercast reels which are made by mitchell, both ultralight and regular.
