Avoid Social Media Samples like such:

I really think it is important you also refrain from calling people foul names or state to people I am not certified to speak on behalf of Wildland Fire.

First off, as one of the two documented YHF eye-witness hikers, I can speak about my weekend- The First Amendment gives me the right to do that.

Secondly, I very much am certified to speak about what I do and as well I have taking many courses to learn about Wildland Fire.

Thirdly, one of the most valuable tools to date are the many years of Wildland Fire experience on InvestigativeMEDIA where I learned so much information over time and like I said that day- the site is a tool to gain wisdom on the YHF but it also has many solid good people on there.

I am placing my public profile today on my post here where all my certifications have been throughout this entire process on the very public website:

I was very happy to see Taylor Thompson place out in reply for you to screenshot the people but you never did that action - why not? see:

but it was quite dangerous the reply Taylor and Lisa Thulander Wyatt and "grreif" did to your reply on that Social Media moment and it was so unnecessary too:

Pretty damaging words on this thread that one of your friends messaged me - "pick us off like snipers above the deployment site" - ??? that's very untrue and unhealthy especially when one reads the rest of the thread and without naming me - you really took effort to describe the person(s) which how many people did you have court issues prior with - ??? see for yourself the thread:

You never exposed anyone publicly as the "bullies" to Taylor or the rest of them or to the world. You stated on same thread there was eight to ten of them- who are they? You also stated you were scared to make it public for so long but airing it out is so important. I challenge you to place the names to these eight to ten - their full names in a public comment or cease and desist from any future wrong doings- it is dangerous.

Your threads that have been sent to me sit with coroner friends of mine and my life insurance family that if anything happens to me you are one of the top areas to investigate all types of technology communications areas of yours both private and public as well I have current FOIAs and PRRs of your email / text threads in regards to me and InvestigativeMEDIA folks where you really were orchestrating up a storm at times behind the scenes in the aftermath of the YHF; unjustly too.

Stay in the moment and speak kind. I have not spoken unkind towards you yet you continue to loop me in the thread throughout time especially in your Social Media areas not even under your name but under your nonprofit-

I just want you to cease and desist me from your awful brain-washing techniques to create discords and disconnects out there in cyberspace-

You have to "pay attention" how you place out areas because things like the photo below deserve more than what you placed because you can create ill-informed and ignorant audience(s) and they will do their best to support you but you need to refrain from placing not all the information out public-

place it all if you are going to do this kind of stuff:

Am I to assume you are not ready to meet me yet with a mediator to mend this area?

I am always ready.

An alleged researcher friend of yours awhile back sent me this exact text stating you wanted to forgive / on the mends with me...see for yourself:

I hope you know now seeing the above texts that I thought you were "fine" with me when we accidentally bumped into each other in Spring 2018 and you had your reaction, I had to get to class and could not engage - yet from that point on the Social Media distractions are not necessary just reach out direct to me at 480-559-1971 to come to a solution.

Stop creating the platforms you have online or offline when those people do no have all the information at hand. I request you remove such rubbish off your Social Media areas.

I am due to profile many areas and they are all documented areas and we can work together to take what I have and figure a proper way that helps you but also helps the Fire Industry so "complete lessons learned" can take place. The causal human factors must be addressed about the fire Sonny and I both eye-witnessed June 28-30th, 2013 on the Weaver Mountains.

I also can give you the tool to show you where the GMHS were on the Weavers June 30, 2013 so you can match it up to the SAIT - SAIR and media outlets content. I will not give it to anyone if they have agendas or commercial purpose intents-

It is with sadness that due to the COVID 19 I missed out on all the Nevada and California Conferences:

Too bad I won't see again (2nd yr in a row)... Mike, Brian, Marshall, Hector, Shawn B., Danny B., Randy S., Jack S., Ken H., Casey J., Shawn F., Johnny C., Johnny T., Crowbar, Bob S, Dan K., etc. at the 2020 USHOTSHOT ASSOCIATION get-together. Last year I was doing my Basic Wildland Training when you all were having the event that weekend after- Bummer.

I also to this date- another year passed and they know- I cannot edit my page yet. ???

I also say bummer to the WUI postponed event:

I also say bummer to these cancellations as well:

We will miss you all this year at the 2020 Conference - great folks!


I am placing my public profile today on my post here where all my certifications have been throughout this entire Fire Career process on the very public website:

I hope this clears up many lies that have been told out there that I am not certified in Wildland Fire FI-210 and I am not certified as a Wildland Firefighter. I hope by providing you my records it clears up others fabrications shown to you all.

This is exactly what is shown on website ( ):
