Welcome Matt

I was a Volunteer Firefighter back in Texas. I am joining the South Windsor VFD, and I am planning on going to get my FF1, so I can become full time.

I was going to school for business, but I soon realized that wasnt the path for me. I joined to keep me busy when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do, and it was the best thing I have ever done, becuase now I know.

Hey Matt. Where in South Windsor are ya? I live on Main Street. I don't actually have a Jeep, I actually have a lifted Green Ford Bronco. My brother has a Sprung over Blue YJ. You might have seen them around town. His name on here is bigbluejeep05 i believe. We should get together some time. The only problem is I currently live in MT for school, but when i get back we should do some wheeling since your so close.
