wildland firefighting

Monday Distraction

The Smokey Generation is a video collection of wildland firefighting stories. The videos last anywhere from around a minute to over ten. 

This one is from a Missoula smokejumper who was boosted (when a different base needs more jumpers & extra jumpers are sent) to the North Cascades Smokejumper Base (NCSB) on the then Okanogan National Forest (now the Okanogan - Wenatchee NF). This the story of her & her partner's epic hike out after a fire.
