Our ace-number-one camptender, Pepe, has gone to Peru for a family visit, and maybe even a tour of Europe with his sister, who is a doctor in Italy. That means that Meghan is now the number one camptender, with me filling in as number two. Luckily, we also have some backups.

There’s a story about the Fireline Stock Driveway. I don’t know if it’s true. The Forest Service had hired a crew to cut the Driveway, which served the dual purpose of cutting a line for fire fighting purposes, and providing a route for the many thousands of sheep trailing from the Red Desert and Great Basin to the summer grazing around Hahn’s Peak and Rabbit Ears. The word came down that the logging crew was doing some illegal logging on the side, so they hired my grandfather to investigate. The next word was that he had gone to work on the logging crew for good wages. As I said, I don’t know if it’s true.
