Are these people stealing firewood or are they actually milling it?

Sheeit Mr. Anderson, you had me at LEO level 3 of region 4, so I stopped reading. I will return and finish the rather lengthy diatribe, but my attention span is not what it used to be (back in the summer of '69, when I did not get my first six-g.. er .. six string).

Oh yeah, I fought the law (and the law usually won).

Good stuff! I was "level 2" USFS law enforcement. I HATED it. On the one hand I had no gun and always had to deal with twitchy armed rednecks. On the other I just never liked hassling people over camping or whatever. I wrote one ticket during those two years-- total drunk guy blasting a shotgun all night. In a campground!! Found him the next morning, mouth open catching flies passed out. I hope they got rid of of the level 2 category. I left it all to fight fires...

Undercover in the woods, and caught the guys - pretty cool.

Interesting perspective Ron, TFPU. Someone once told me that an anti-theft technique was to spray potential xmass trees near roads with animal piss that froze on the trees, if a poacher cut the tree it would thaw out and reek. Is that true and does it really work?

"White Fir oil is also soothing to rheumatic pain, and great for muscles (or joints) that have been overworked or are tired. It is excellent for pain that has been brought on from inflammation."--Piss Fir Willie Gibbons

A poem (not a haiku) from Jim Dodge.

HARD WORK

Boys, I've listened to your horseshit enough.
You want to know what hard work is, listen up:
I've rode a misery whip; carried hod;
Pulled green-chain; broke big rocks into little rocks;
Whupped a hundred miles of picket fence;
Set choker in country so rough
You were doing good if you could crawl downhill.
I've fought wildfire; lugged sandbags against floods;
Bucked hay till I was tripping on my tongue;
And made so damn much split stuff
I plumb wore out a sledgehammer head
And a couple o' pairs of elk-hide gloves.
So you boys can write it down as gospel when I tell you
The hardest work you'll find in this world
Is digging the grave for someone you loved.
