Quote from: badkneesI think he took a job with the NPS Ahem... I DON'T THINK SO The Ken Burns NPS love fest was so revolting I had to spend muchisimo tiempo on 'other than NPS' lands to heal the rip he created in the space-time continuum. However, Ken did confirm my suspicions the NPS was and is in the entertainment business. I was disappointed they never sang Kumbaya in any episode. Loved those parts about golf courses, fire falls, eradicating predators and the myriad other things of that ilk that the agency did in furtherance of 'preservation and protection' but which, of course, were anything but (except in furtherance of entertainment for the tourists). Perhaps the most startling revelation, which I actually found stunning that it was even admitted, was that Mather was in and out of mental institutions while director. Seems to have set a tone still in force.Actually, while the love fest was revolting, I was just off on other endeavors but did go to my favorite BLM and USFS places. (note to Homero....if you don't expect photos, you won't be disappointed )I am BAAAAAAACK! Hmmmmmm....I wonder if not everyone will be overjoyed? s to everyone! I've got a lot of catching up to do.
It's great to have you back, Presidio. This Board is way too smug and complacent when you are not around to stir things up.
By the way, where are your "favorite BLM places"? Utah, by any chance?
Presidio, just give us a big "HOWDY" (if you can find it in your heart) since Texas still does that voodoo that Texas does so well. Al

Very well done! GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU!Al
I did take a couple of photos so maybe I'll put a few on here in a couple of weeks. However, I will not reveal the locations as that spoils the adventure of finding things on your own.
