"Johnny, there's some shit you got to walk through alone..."
It is Monday, isn't it? Or Tuesday. Yesterday was schedule day, in which I hammered out my travel schedule for August. Which took the entire day, with the exception of my mountain bike ride at lunch.
However, during the ride, it was as if scales were lifted from my eyes!
I found the answer to a question I've been asking over and over again to no avail. Well, I won't keep you in suspense one minute longer than necesary...I found out what USFS Rangers really do! That's right, I've been darned puzzled about what the Greenies do with their time, aside from harassing shooters, running from Rainbow People and scheduling public meetings to ask for more resources.
Well, now I know.
They make little baby Greenies!
Since it was a quickie lunch bike, my Sweetie and I biked the upsy-downsy gravel roads around here, eventually ending up on a dead-end road up pretty high. There parked at the end of the road under the "Dead End" sign was a Greenie truck, with what appeared to be a single Ranger in it studying a map. Upon, as they say in Deadwood, closer inspection, the one Greenie was revealed to be two Greenies...well, they might not have been Greenies, as they weren't wearing their Greenie Gear. They were in t-shirts...maybe they were undercover Rangers...
And, in truth, they may have been just reading the map. While I have never stretched out along the front seat with my back to the door and arranged to have a member of the opposite sex laying on top of me to help me read a map, maybe that's why I'm lost all the time!
In any case, I'm definitely not riding in the front seat of a Greenie truck...ick!
Anyway, I got a laugh out of it!
