Cadgy use of fire money. “Prepare the roads for future fire use” is USFSese for we have some money to spend with this fire, so we will let the fire fun pay to cut the brush along out roads and meet our line of sight goals, and vegetation encroachment mediation goals. In other words, the USFS is spending fire money to do the work Congress has not funded, or was spent in seminars on how to talk to each other, work graciously with other dummies, not be offended by PDA and other acts of affection by those who are not mainstream folks from Leave it to Beaver….

My wife’s birthday was upcoming and she asked for something ” that “would last a lifetime”, an “enduring gift”, hint, hint…So I got her a set of USFS grader blades….I sleep in the garage now.
