I'd rather fight 100 structure fires than a wildfire. With a structure fire you know where your flames are, but in the woods it can move anywhere; it can come right up behind you.
I'm very happy with my life. I am what I am. I don't worry about anything that I can't control. That's a really good lesson in life.
