Murry's career 'eating smoke' began the summer of 1959 on the Sierra National Forest on a slash disposal/fire crew. He started smokejumping in 1965 in Redding, California. By 1972, Murry was 31 years old, and it occurred to me that I could simply quit, jump a couple more seasons, get it out of my system, then return to my Forest Service career and settle down.
In 1973, he became a Bureau of Land Management Alaska smokejumper and loved it so much, he never looked back. That season is the setting for More or Less Crazy, and the beginning of what eventually became known as the T-Hangar Days.
In twenty-seven years as a smokejumper, he jumped fires in eight western states, all over Alaska, and the Yukon Territory of Canada. I made 375 total jumps, 205 to fires. The story of smokejumping is a story of extraordinary human endeavor; a story that strongly embraces the tenet that there is virtue in trying hard, keeping the faith, and never giving up.
