Eric, why in the world would we need facts and statistics from Brian?
Gotcha

I know towing a trailer is far more dangerous than getting injured by a bear and that's why we have a grizzly tow our trailer now while we lounge in comfort inside the trailer.

The grizzly feeds itself, thus saving on fuel, and is very effective in getting us through traffic jams.

We call him Brian.

Gene,
What do you feed him? Do you pay him well? Has he had adequate safety training. Do you supply him with DOT certified high visibility vests? Are his harnesses inspected on a daily basis for wear? Do you include a benefit package in his compensation? Is he a contractor or an employee? Does he belong to a labor union?
Just askin. If this is a trend I may want to organize them to improve their working conditions.
Dan

Eric, fill me in on what? I'm not sure I like your tone. This may end up in court.

Brian the Bear is quite happy and my relationship with him is none of your business. If you bring a labor organizer near him, I assure you Brian will be well fed. This could end up in court.

Glad we finally have this thread back on track before the mods close it.

I never let facts get in the way a good story, nor do I let them interfere with derailing a perfectly good thread.

Gene, I'm sure Brian would love all of the benefits that collective bargaining could offer him. I may even offer him an equity share of PPP. We're doing quite well in a small market. At least Eric has some respect for Brian's intellect and capabilities.

Saw our first Grizzley of the season last night here near Skagway. He was medium sized and looked a bit skinney for pulling Gene's rig. Might work for one of those teardrop SOBs that we see around here in the summer though.

Deauxrite. We go up to Wrangle every year usually around Memorial Day for the Salmon Derby. Last year I saw more grizzlies than I've ever seen and they were not skinny. Lots of Kings. I think the Derby winner last year was 67lbs.

Hmmm so bears like to fish.. and so do some humans.. doesnt this bring us back to the cold beer issue?

Which reminds me of a story. A Bear walks into the Mint Bar in Billings, Montana (every town in montana has a Mint Bar). The bartender says "We do not serve Bears in Bars in Billings." The bear bellies up to the bar and says "Bartender, I want a Beer.. Make it a Konkanee". The bartender, not phased by a talking bear says "Sir, we do not serve Beer to Bears in Bars in Billings". The bear growls and says "Bartender, If you do not serve me a beer, I will go and eat that lady sitting at the end of the bar" the bartender replies "Sir, we do not serve Beer to Belligerent Bears in Bars in Billings." The bear promptly gets up, and eats the woman, and turning to the Bartender says "NOW will you serve me a beer?" The bartender, still in an even voice says "Sir, we do not serve Beer to Belligerent Bears in Bars in Billings, ESPECIALLY if they are on drugs." The bear is stunned and insulted "Bartender, I have never touched drugs in my life! Explain why you think I am on drugs!" The bartender looks him square in the eyes and says "That was a Bar Bitch you ate."

Eric, very good. You're almost as irrelavant as me. Gene is using a bear named Brian to tow his trailer and I'm not sure he is even letting Brian **** in the woods. I may have to step in legally to see that Brian gets this cultural right restored and some good working rules are established.

A very long time ago I was in the 17 Bar in Billings, but I saw no bears there. Thus, it is obvious that bears go to bars in Boise or Butte for beer and ladies.

No, Bob, it is not. My mother and her sisters (all born in 1910 or earlier) used to call things a "beaut" and it was meant sarcastically. I know you can handle that, but a wife who talks like a women of 100+? They all wore girdles too.

I think there is a Bear Butte in South Dakota... and all the "Ladies" in Butte lost their jobs when Bob Butorovich closed the Dumas... You gotta wonder about a town that builds its High School 3 blocks from the red light district... even if it WAS cheap land. HAHAHA

Whew, that was close;
* my wife is a Billings girl (but is not now - or was not ever- a bar hop)! Those darned Billings bears; actually there are more Bobcats (MSU) in Billings than bears.

Living in the home city of the U of MT GRIZZLIES ... so we have griz all over the place, here. LOL ... stickers, shirts, hats, jackets, etc. It is hard to walk or dirive anywhere in this town without seeing a griz (fan). However, I will say that I saw more than my fair share of very large grizzly bears while working as the LE ranger at Logan Pass in Glacier NP. I was the ranger who often got sent in to patrol when an area was closed to visitor access.

I went to Butte High School and can tell you that the Dumas wasn't the only brothel on Mercury street. And Sheriff Bob didn't close down the Dumas. They just had trouble selling what everyone else was giving away for free!
