The final episode of this season of Horizon Line features a collection of tales from Rod Dow, who spent 32 years working as a smokejumper––a parachuting wilderness firefighter. At the time of his retirement in 1999, Rod had jumped into more fires than anyone else. He is the author of Just a Few Jumper stories, a book of 70 true stories from his smokejumping days, available on Amazon. Horizon Line is hosted by Ella Morton and Dylan Thuras and produced by Grant Irving. Music by Nolan Schneider. Additional production for this week's episode from Hana Glasser and Rose Annis. A very special thank you to Rod Dow. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
