Lots of you have been asking what you can do to help. This year's resolution is to affect change on The Angeles and take back OUR forest. I will have an online petition circulating soon. Thanks everybody.

I originally wanted to blog about my adventures in the San Gabriel Mountains. I have some good stories, like the time I took a donkey to Ralph's Supermarket. But then the Station Fire started. I realized that there is much that needs to be brought to the attention of the mountain going public. Most folks are kept in the dark about how the Angeles National Forest operates. I will raise issues that are important to me, which are hopefully important to all citizens, but if you have any suggestions for discussion here, I am willing.

Here's the big agenda: Forest Supervisor Jody Noiron. I've made a few smart remarks and cryptic comments about her. But now, with the backing of some knowledgeable and trusted friends, it is time for a concerted effort to have her removed from her post. Stay tuned for details. And if you have any information you would like to contribute, anonymously or not, email me at gregsweet4@yahoo.com

I will get to some of the stories, sooner or later. Also, I want to make it clear that I no longer work at Adams' Pack Station, that these words are my own, and that the pack station is not the source of my information - they don't want trouble.

Packing Pictures

Pictures of me and donkeys packing. I will add more here as I find them on my computer. Hover over 'Notes' at bottom right for more info (which is also under construction) and click on 'Link' for full size images on Flickr...

Those are great photos. I think I've met you a few times. After the closure of the road Mr V and I started walking it carrying greens we would take to the donkeys. I was smitten by the choice you guys had made to allow the donkeys free rain on the hills.

Aren't a few of them BLM captures?

Happy Holiday

Yes, old Bill in these photos was a BLM rescue, but he died earlier this year. Now they have four BLMs: Andy, Eeyore, Jenny, and Blue Belle.

When I'm done reforming the forest I'll get to some of the stories, like the donkeys running free - did you know that they (almost) always came back to the barn at night?

It doesn't surprise me. I had a horse for ten years. They appreciate security and a regular meal.
