      I was wondering about that myself. If it gets washed the signatures will wear off.

      Maybe the hat should be washable and instead of signing the HAT we sign an accompanying certificate capturing our moment of fame!

        But having everyone sign it with their username, date of birth and location would be cool, especially when it had made the final round. It should wind up in the Pit museum. Maybe just make everyone vow to wash their head before putting it on?

      A certificate is just fine with me, but I wanted to also mention that the Sharpie folks also make a 'Permanent' Laundry marker. We used them to stencil all of our underclothes, etc. in the service. Even on whites, which were bleached heavily all the time, they take a very long time to fade enough where it needed to be re-marked.

      IIRC the brand was Rub A Dub, used to have an octopus in a sailor hat on the barrel.

      Link, be sure to add the AR if anybody orders, or perhaps the Mod(s) will go in for the assist here...

      Just one idea....

        I'm in, June 7th. tbob4 is the 8th and we live about 3 1/2 hours away from each other. We could meet in Red Bluff and do a personal exchange. I'm not sure if an old retired fireman will have anything in common with an old retired lawman, but you never know ......

          I started out working at Mt. Bullion supervising the fire crews. I think we have more in common than you know. Otherwise, I would never have dropped the Pulaski comment about the grate cleaner! HA. Heck, I propose we have a cook off on the 7th at my house - no votes we just both win.

          I wondered about that comment. I covered Mt Bullion a couple of times as a Capt B. I always enjoyed working with CDC, sometimes more than with my own guys. I think it would be great to meet up sometime, let's keep the thought going.

          I was there when it was a CYA camp. The guys I supervised worked their tails off. We also had an in-camp culinary program run by a successful chef who opted for the security of civil service. Some of the food they turned out would make members of the Pit proud.

        As far as the cootie factor, most of us in public safety and the military have (mostly) hot bunked and shared equipment for years without too much trouble. I'm sure a couple of alcohol wipes would be sufficient before shipping on.

          OK let's use permanent sharpies and agree 1) to not wear the hat if we have something we shouldn't be sharing (cooties) and 2) that we'll wash our heads and not get the thing dirty.

          @carolts link me the hat again that you had in mind and I need you and @johnec00 to PM me your addresses. I will buy the hats and get them on their way.

          • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

            Henrik I checked out shipping to Stockholm in time for your birthday. It was pretty pricey. We might have to start an international hat.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill
              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
