    Congrats on the little one Dan!

    I have 4 young kids myself so don't have a huge amount of spare time. I love Rugby League and watch it the NRL as much as I can on weekends (see sig for big hits). Also love lying around on the lounge watching DVD's. Love having friends over for a barbie and beers.

    My time off is in the winter also, so I usually stare out the windows with my hands in my pockets(wishing it would warm up)

    If I am not working or shooting I am on calls as a volunteer firefighter.

    Since Texas, and especially central Texas, is in the midst of a historic drought, our call volume has been rather high.

    Averaging ten to twelve hours per week on either accidents, brush fires, aircraft accidents but fortunately haven't encountered any structure fires.

    From a week prior to now it has been over eighteen hours on mutual aid calls and got in this morning at 0030hrs after an RV towing a vehicle caught fire then started a 30 acre grass fire in dense brush.

    At least it's keeping me out of the bars . . . .
