Therefore we were faced with the necessity of refilling our purse alarmingly deflated during the summer months. And that presented a problem. Of course Charles could go to work. But what could he do the question was unexpectedly answered when we met Forest Ranger Ralph Amundson. A would you be interested a he asked Charles a in Clearing Forest fire trails girdling Trees and scaling lumber during the Winter months a and that show Charles became a woodsman.

Second class postage paid at Bennington it. Then again i saw him wedged in the morning until darkness fell he and three other inexperienced woodsmen under the guidance of Amundson slashed and chopped at the Frozen wilderness. All Winter Long they tramped through the Woods Clearing out fire trails Many of them old Stagecoach routes that wound up and Down and around the mountains now overgrown with Brush. They culled weak Trees and girdled deformed and sickly ones by Chipping out a four Inch band of bark deeply penetrating the cambium layer. A tree thus treated will eventually die. But Long before it Dies the absence of foliage opens up a passageway for Sun and air to promote the growth of younger and healthier Trees. Sometimes when snowshoeing in and out of the Woods was too cumbersome the men spent the night in one of the Hunting Cabins which stood unlocked on National Forest land. Thus i never knew if Charles would come Home at night or not. That a Why i Wasny to concerned when mrs. Amundson telephoned one afternoon to say a your husband May not be Home a ooh yes a i answered a i expected him to stay in Camp tonight because ifs been snowing quite a ooh no a she said a it Isnit that. He a lost. But done to worry. My husband and the other men will find him. They re looking for him now. My head swam. Horrible pictures about being lost in the Woods unfolded before my imagination. I saw Charles lying in in a Crevasse hanging by his snowshoes upside Down his face Blue and cold. But nothing like that happened. The Day had begun Bright and sunny. During the morning a Strong wind sprung up that Bent Young Trees like Reeds. Snow was falling steadily and the temperature had dropped to 20 below Zero by noon. Charles had been working near a Beaver Pond. Engrossed in girdling marking Trees for cutting Ana keeping warm he had paid no attention to where he was going until he had lost sight of the Pond. He had no gun to give a distress signal and his shouts were stifled by the wind. So instead of staying where he was he walked to what he thought was the direction of the Trail. Instead he walked in circles. Not until he chanced upon another Beaver dam barely recognizable As such unaware that it Wasny to the one he had lost did he sit Down to wait. That a where the men finally caught up with him hours later. When he came Home late that night no worse for Wear he Wise cracked about his escapade. A there was nothing to worry about a he said repeatedly a i just sat Down because i was much later he admitted that it Hadnot been funny at All that his Snowshoe tracks were snowed under As fast As he made them and that he would be continued walking had he known that it was the wrong Beaver Pond in which Case he might have never been found. He had gained a deep respect for the Woods. Fortunately Charles had been dressed for the ordeal and did no to even catch a cold. Nevertheless he enjoyed staying Home when persistent siberian cold and extremely heavy snowfalls interrupted the Forest work for several weeks. Meanwhile there were things to do at Home including filling the Larder with a pig. Continued next week automated . Bigger buying Power super duper Market depot Street Bennington it. Put on his work shoes and stuff a handful of sour balls into his shirt pocket. That a ready anyhow a few minutes later i was caught sneaking a squeeze bottle of Baxtine and a Box of band aids into my pocketbook and that reduced him to gales of laughter. A of i also put in a bag of those miniature Milky ways on the premise that All in be heard about chocolate being Quick Energy is True. I planned to carry the Candy assuming that id be the one most Likely to need the Energy. Maybe before i even left the House after lamenting a bit about the fact that the sturdiest footwear i own is a pair of sneakers with a Hole in each toe and after being assured by himself that wed stick to the Wood Road since Mary Jean is just four and certainly anyplace Little legs could take my big sneakers could take me we were about ready.
