Got to see my Wife finally. But, I guess I jumped the gun and scheduled before she was classified at CIW. So, after a 2 hour drive, we found out we could only see her thru a 12x12 piece of glass. It was extremely upsetting to my kids. I'm glad we got to see her after 4 months, but there has to be a better way. I don't understand why she spent 4 months at Chowchilla (CCWF) FOR classification and then needs to get re-classified.

Hang in there Rise21. You got this.

Hi Rise21, i'm new to the site and at the beginning of my journey. Your thread is one of the first I've taken the time to fully read, and gave me some relief being up at 4:15am not being able to sleep because my mind won't shut off. Any update on what's happened in the past 9 days? I know it's prob a bit too soon for anything new but, just wanted to reach out and say hello and stay strong!

Hi Andrew ! Yes, there have been some changes. First, welcome and you've made a great decision. This site has been very informative and helpful. My Son and I went to see my Wife 5/17 for the 2nd visit. It was awesome ! Once you get through all the checking in BS and actually sit down with them, it's really nice. I know, I actually forgot about all the heartache and stress for the couple of hours we were there. My Wife has been training to start training for fire camp. She seems pretty happy and strong. You stay strong too Andrew !

Fire Camp is definitely the way to go, Im biased of course since my dad helped develop the programs, spent nearly his entire career at CDF (now CalFire) working with inmates. He worked at CIW until retiring a few years back.

She will be busy busy starting soon with fire season, plus Im pretty sure they still earn 2/1 days off.

Hang in there!

Been a while since I updated. My Wife has been at CIW since the beginning of May. She has completed her training for fire camp and is now doing the forestry class and doing very well. She should graduate at the end of this month. She'll be then sent to Rainbow, Puerta La Cruz, or Malibu. Definitely hoping for Rainbow or Puerta La Cruz. Much closer than Malibu. Visits have been good, scheduling early with VPASS. She seems actually happy. So, that makes me happy and relieved.

Default Separation

It is never easy to be separated from a loved one no matter what the situation. Remember to take care of your health, eat well, and rest when you can. Thank goodness for the support you have from many. Feeling powerless is real yet there are many things you can do to continue the love. Send cards, letters and photos of the children and friends. Have the children write her too. Mail time is the most important part of the day. To know that you have people who love, care and miss you as you hear you number called in a dehumanized place. Family interaction provides balance for the mind and heart.

Quick Update. My Wife did very well in fire camp training. She finished first in her class and was allowed to pick which camp she went to. So, Rainbow it is ! She will have about a week of training there before she can head out to any fires. I'm not sure how contained the Big Bear fire is, so she might be headed there if it's not knocked down enough. I will be a nervous wreck when she gets sent out, that's for sure. My Son and I will visit her tomorrow ! This will be her last stop before coming home !

Visiting my Wife at Rainbow fire camp is 1000% better than anywhere else. The staff is very nice and helpful. While I worry about her going out on fires, I am so incredibly proud of her. Man, she works so hard like all the women there.

Yes, those in fire camps DO work hard and I don't know what other firefighters would do without their help. It's a tough job and I'm glad to hear she's doing well.

Quick Update: Recently, my Wife's been gone out on the wildfires for about 2 weeks. She's making the best of it. She's definitely busting her ass. Her stories she shares are incredible. Digging a ditch to sleep in on the side of a mountain . Never would have ever thought I'd hear that ! Can't wait to go camping now with her and the kids ! So damn proud of her.

Rise21 that is so amazing, I am glad you are so proud of her! She must be working hard, and I'm sure those stories have got to be awesome. Here's to her safety and for you getting to visit her soon.

I know we have had some major ass fires near me.
Thank God for these folks. Otherwise I think the stupid state would be entirely on fire.
Not enough fire fighters in the state to handle it alone.

Hi Everyone,

Got to see my Wife today at Rainbow. They had been out on fires for a month and a half (record for Rainbow). She told me she went to see committee yesterday and they are letting her come home early with an ankle monitor in a month !! It's actually 2 weeks to a month (I always go with the longer date). She'll have to wear it for about a month and a half. But, she'll be home !!

So happy it's almost over for your family.We'll miss your posts. Almost seems like everyone knows each other on these forums. Tell her I'm proud of her and what she's accomplished.

I'm a SoCal native and even LONG before I became a felon I was thankful for the innate firefighter.

Please give your wife my thanks?

Congratulations! That is so cool! Glad she's safe and give her thanks for fighting those fires for us! What are you going to do for her homecoming? Do you think you will do a little party, or get together? Or just do something nice together?

Thank you ! You know, I'm not sure what we will do. Probably a little party or something. After she's settled in again. I really have no clue what to expect.

Thats cool news Rise 21... I remember talking with you when this journey first started!! COngrats!!! Is she coming straight home with an ankle monitor or going to CCTRP first? My wife has been there (CCTRP in Kearney Mesa) since August of last year and it has been a blessing. Passes on the weekends, very laid back environment. She too is on an ankle monitor. She working at a job in the community, where they have her save 75% of her pay for when she leaves. We are done in 96 days and she will have over 10K saved!!! Our journey has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but through the grace of GOD we made it!!Glad to hear you are doing well and good luck!!! You got this!!

Thanks Mike ! She's coming straight home. She'll have the ankle monitor removed by 11/30, then put on probation for a while. I heard like 6 months. The Parole Agent who came by the house was pretty nice. He doesn't have an actual date for me yet. He did make me quite nervous about probation officers who would be coming by after the monitor comes off. So, we'll see.
