Sitzkreig aside, my wife and I spend 5 months as volunteers living on a 1000 square mile wildlife refuge north of Yuma AZ for US Fish & Wildlife Service. Heading back for year 8 on November 1st. A big part of what we do most years is hiking out to check water levels on up to 200 water holes scattered over that 1000 sq. miles. Some are up to 8 miles round trip, with a 2 to 3 hour drive one way to get to the start and it's all bushwhacking and ball breaking-no trails. Last year for the first time we assisted with a water drop to a water hole 40' up on a cliff, through 3/4's of a mile of fire hose and a forest fire pumper truck 3/4's of a mile away. There were 12 of us on that project, to haul hose and lay it out to move 8000 gal.s of water & take it all down again. They are now hauling water 2 & 3 days a week since a year ago March and take this as the primary mission these days. Deer, Big Horn Sheep and Sonoran Pronghorn are dying, from starvation from lack of feed (due to lack of rain) and lack of water of for drinking. We remove carcasses from the water hole areas regularly-it's really sad. These folks are some of the smartest and dedicated people we've ever been around-they are awesome. As I said, Sitzkreig aside. We meet nitwits like him all winter long out there.
