Hi! IMTB family, Been wanting to say hello♡ I do peep on the board to see what you all are up too.And So enjoy reading your adventures. And posts. It is truly the best forum with the best folks.. missing you all. Mcg and me are keeping busy.. We were honored to be in the Rose parade with the Forest service and Smokey bear .It's his 75th Birthday.. I still help with the Angeles National Forest Facebook page... After the government shutdown was over we were finally able to get back posting on FB and to get back to trail work.. but with the rains that put a stop to the some work, but Mcg was able to do some Sawyer work.. speaking of Sawyer's work MCg started training me yes seriously training. Since I have been a sawyer's supervisor for at least 15yrs And have sat in on several certification and training classes and recerts classes.. well to make a long story short. This past weekend all 2 long days which by the way was Mcg and me 49th wedding Anniversary and mcg's 67th Birthday we spent it no better way than with our ANF family in the Sawyer's chainsaw class. Hardcore! ..Mcg has been a certified Sawyer since 2001 and a B Sawyer for a decade or more And guess what ! I became a certified A Sawyer . I past the test... Yes Me! I became a certified A Sawyer, now I am both a supervisor and a certified A Sawyer. So excited and glad I was ablet to complete and pass.. not easy .. . I have ran and completed 23 LA marathons ... this was harder but I'm glad to be a real part of the sawyer team . I still need a lot more training, but I feel good... Well. .thank you! for reading what has been happening in our lives. SO Look forward to perhap seeing some of you soon .. spring is in the Angeles National Forest, hoping to see you all on the trails soon..and if you ride across a tree that has been chainsawed ott the trail,, well it might have been done by Sawyer A me . thank you for being a part of our lives.. happy hugs from mcg and me.. ..thank you for reading this post..
