One of the earliest trips I ever took with FMC was a FirstLine Termite Bait Conference in Tucson, AZ and a group of intrepid hikers came together for a rather famous excursion – let’s just call it the Ocotillo hike. Ocotillo for those who may not know are cactus with rather long spines (see picture).
It was a brutal hike – hot, not enough water and a few of us didn’t wear the appropriate equipment. I’m not going to mention names here but his initials are Larry Pinto (see the hush puppies).
Thanks to the group Rick Lewis (FMC) Jim Ballard (FMC) now with Ballard Consulting, Brad Kard (University of Oklahoma) Larry Pinto & Sandy Kraft (Pinto & Associates) Gary Cramer (FMC) now with the Peace Corps, Terry Porter formally FMC and Keith Birkemeyer (FMC) now ProBest Pest Management.
A BIG shout out to my hiking friends… Ocotillo
