See any tankers at the smoke jumper center? The couple little FireBoss tankers we have over the border here have been pretty busy, wondering if the Neptunes are over at MSO.

Yes sir the P2s were alive and well at MSO. Pretty cool to see those guys rush out and in. I didn't see any 146s though. Our chief pilots bro is from MSO and now flies charter for Neptune. Beautiful area!

I see the smoke hasn't made it up there. The entire state of Idaho is on fire.
Oh no the smoke was indeed there. Had to get pop up IFR put the hoses up my nose and climb to the MEA. The day after we couldnt take pics because the winds kept the smoke over our job area we were stuck in MSO for two days, horrors ;).. A north wind pushed it all back to the south and we blasted out headed for grand junk

You got that right, we were about 3 miles in flight visibility Friday night. My student took his PPSEL checkride Saturday and they got 1/2 way through the flight but had to do a discontinuance due to the poor visibility in smoke.
