Three cheers for Ranger Tim

How great is it that someone can post a question about the BBRSP and get an answer from a SP Ranger? Thanks Tim.  We all appreciate your knowledge and willingness to help/inform.

Indeed. Quite a contrast from, say, that other place with rangers.

+1. Ranger Tim is an incredible asset to this board, the state park, and the Bend in general. Thanks, Tim.

Tim is a gentleman and a scholar.  He knows his stuff and is willing to share it.  I have found him to be the utmost (period).
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Tim - enjoy your moment in the sun.  As a public employee, you know that the clouds of some kind of complaints are coming.
