Alaska Ideas Wanted

I'm currently writing a novel, the first book in a trilogy is already published over at Kindle. Its fun, and I'm having a great summer. A friend told me about this when I worked in the Grand Tetons last May. I've already uploaded my other books and made money.


But, I'm thinking about Alaska now. I think its all Aggies fault.


I know several who are having a blast in Alaska, Anne, are you out there? My main question is housing. Found out I am a very light…

Ode to Camping

I thought I would depart from my "Ranger Rants" series, and add a short piece regarding camping.  As some of you know, I have not been a big fan of fact it would not be too strong to say I detested camping.   However my recent trip to the Grand Canyon has definitely changed my perspective on the subject.  What changed?  Well first I discovered I could not find a hotel/motel room for less than $100/night and my camping spot ended up costing me $9/night (w/ my senior pass).  Also,… Continue

Ranger Rich Rants ... Volume 7

I just returned from the Grand Canyon.  How do you describe something that is simply indescribable?  If you haven't seen the Grand Canyon .... go see it.  You will not believe your eyes.   The incredible power of water over a few million years.   It took me 6 hours to drive to the canyon, but let me tell ya .... it was worth every second behind the wheel.   I took a bike tour Saturday on one of the Park Service's new "greenway" bike paths.  Eventually they hope to have many miles of bike paths… Continue

Planning for 2012

As of March 2012, I will have been at GCSR (Grand Canyon South Rim) for 5 years, which means I will get 3 weeks of paid vacation time. I guess it seems like I have been 'stuck in a rut' lately and its probably because of being in a place for so long; because hey let's face it...this is the longest I have stayed in 1 spot for a very very long time.

What's the difference between a grave & a rut? Nothing, just depends on how deep you dig the hole.

So anyways, I am hoping to… Continue

Ranger Rich Rants ... Volume 5

The Jackson Meetup .... WOW ..... what an absolute blast that was!  Those of you that blew it off .... OOPS!  You missed it big time.  Thanks to Kari & Megan & Terry for being the perfect folks to spend time with.  I haven't drank that much beer since Texas A&M (too many years ago).  Thanks to all of you for making me feel so much part of the group .... none too young or old, just good friends :-)  The bike ride Saturday was spectacular!  We even saw a Moose at the end of the bike… Continue
