Day one of Fire School at Rocky Mountain Fire Academy

Getting instructions on our breathing devices.

A 30 min carbon fiber air tank

A breathing mask

Testing our breathing systems by shuttling up stairs.

Made it to the top.

Pretty hot in these fire suits!

Ken can't wait to get his helmet off!

Relief for Randall's back

And so we went to the Denver Oktoberfest and explored Denver.

There was a wiener dog contest.

A shark-wiener

I see a jockey on a wiener or daisy dukes with the fur on it?
