When Bailey was a little guy he and I worked together as Allagash Rangers, patrolling the Allagash Wilderness Waterway (AWW). We worked 10 days on and getting 5 days off, living alone in a remote cabin (2hrs from pavement, and further than that to a store). Driving home to Caratunk was like a drive into a big city.
I did this for 2 summers, I only had Bailey for the second summer. I often miss the solitude I had on the waterway, it was a really great time in my life, and it is what lead me to getting Bailey in the first place.
This Muttley Monday is a bit of a throwback to those times.
