Anyone who can put up with Mill Bay is good in my books Naw, just joking, the MB guys are a good crew too!

Went to the VIFFA website (www.viffa.org) and it looks like Duncan is hosting the 2007 Evolutions... hopefully they don't it right in the middle of town like south end did... middle of now-where seems to be the best place for the festivities to happen!

Sooke is treating me great. While I miss the 4 minute comminute to work with the old place, I am 1000 times more comfortable in sooke than downtown victoria! Plus, I think I was pushing the odds for getting my car broken into... had someone do my tires once, but never actually broken into.

I am pretty much the low probie on the line, but I don't mind. Its sorta re-freshing to not have to worry about anything except doing what I am told (and getting my homework done... which reminds me, I have to list a few buildings with Type II construction in sooke, besides the schools... any suggestions?). Besides, I always enjoyed rolling hose or washing the trucks!

Yea hope to get out this year, rumor has it that the theme is highland games, will have to get the Chief out in his Kilt for that one.

Sooke always has a good showing at Evo, they brought quite the contingent to ours in 2004.

Yeah, I have met most of the guys with Sooke at either Evolutions or Auto Ex over the years, prior to me moving to Sooke, so I already partially fit in! (apparently I have a "reputation" and am "well-known"... not sure if that is good or bad!!)

Oh well, they were happy to welcome me aboard and I am happy to be there, so I guess it all works out in the end.

I had my interview with them on the 16th and I do agree, they seem like a great group of guys.

Duncan for evolutions 07 eh? I think I heard about that somewhere a while ago, either way I'm sure it'll be a great time.

I'll second that!!

Quiet night last night.... well, until 10:00pm when the FR duty crew takes over. Not sure what happens after that. We did, however, get a few FR calls during practice but nothing that would have pulled the entire department away from the ladder ops lecture... a topic I am sure we will get our quota of over the next few months as the new truck is supposed to be here in mid February!

When I left last night we were at 46 calls for the year! I am coming up on a dozen myself... not bad for only 2 weeks with a pager!
