    Well I just finished packing my gear and we leave at 9:00 tomorrow.
    should be a tiring wet time.
    I will be down there for at least a week (if not longer)
    I will try to get an update on RM from down there but it isn't likely.

    NO here I come so stop shooting at rescue teams :D

    *update* FRi 1:30

    stopped in IL for some food and I picked up a Wifi signal

    I did bring a vest and a 9mm
    we got word that our team is heading downtown NO after we arrive to fight some building fires. We were assigned a guardsman(from MI) to protect our truck I never thought I would be fighting fires next to a guy with an assault rifle.

    thanks everyone for the thoughts :thumb:

    Firetool, if you can, take a camera. I don;t mean to be morbid or anything like that but you will see things that will likely not be shown on TV.
