Over a course of 2 days, Paul LaRochelle and I took a trip to the Philly area and NY and Hartford on the way home. After meeting some new Firefighters from Philly's Ladder 10 -Engine 7 we went off to meet the brothers in Camden.

Along with Philly, Camden also rolled out the red carpet to us. After getting a ride on the fireboat on the Delaware River, we were taken out to lunch by Bat Chief Sandrock. He then took the time to show us the City of Camden which is around 9 square miles. As I could see this is a much smaller version of Detriot. Then Capt. Joel Bain introduced us to his son Joel who one day hopes to follow in his fathers footsteps in Camden. He then took us to see his fathers collection of fire apparatus and more. So I gave you a good look of the area in Camden with houses apartments and the VPS widow covers to see.

On Sunday we started home, stopped in the Italian section of Da Bronx talked with the crew from R3 then over to Engine 88 & 38 for some time.

We then headed back home and decided to stop in Hartford were we caught 2 box alarms. No fire for us on this trip but met alot of great brothers.

From Paul and I thanks to all for your awesome hospitality. And RIDE SAFE!
