Thread Name: BS: Your favorite T-shirt
Subject: RE: BS: Your favorite T-shirt
i lost dozens of shirts when my house (and over 200 0thers) burned down last summer.i made one with "magic markers" that says
How do we get from Bewilder to Rebuilder?

some of the shirts i have (that survived the fire) were shirts i got
from various large campaign fires that i have worked on (i am a fire fighter) these were in my out-of-county bag (a bag that we keep ready
in case we are called away on a moment's notice to fight a fire. Often times you will find tee shirt booths near fire base camps. the shirt
designers and vendors are sometimes retired fire fighters. they make
designs in the winter and when summer comes they give them the name of the fire and silk screen print the shirts on site near the fire camp.

whenever an incident is dispatched, it is given a name, so a fire may
have been named after a road, or area where it started whether it is 1 or 1,000 acres, it keeps the name given when it was first called in.

i used to have shirts from every concert or festival i have worked at.
sometimes you work all weekend and the shirt is your main payment!
(that and entry into the event) the ones i miss the most are the ones from the Strawberry Music Festival...many had glow-in-the-dark designs
