Good to see you here. I am a retired 34 year arson investigator and inspections from the Georgia State Fire Marshal's Office. I live in West Central Georgia and I have family in Cleveland, TN and have been there many times. I hope to see you on the road sometimes.

Welcome. Wow, you've got history! Glad the wife is still talking to you. Congrats on your retirement. My son is a Captain in our local fire dept. My hats off to you for all your service years. Enjoy your travels. If you ever make it to CA send a big wave out as you pass the middle of the state.
