I just had to share this, the other day I was riding through the national forest not to far from my home down a two rut road following a hog trail when i came on a new (or at least a year old) F250 4x4 extended cab ($30,000 easy) painted light green with a federal plate, the driver had stuck this huge pile of money in a hole and requested some assistance in remedying the situation as i helped get the rope tied off he came out from under his rig with some sort of hurry, i questioned him as to the reason at which time he pointed out a rattle snake under his truck, with a round of birdshot we were back to the task at hand. Well in all this I asked what he did for the forest service that brought him way out here, he said he was assigned to drive every single road and path possible counting trees then using an equation to determine the amount of that particular tree per acre. I asked what that kind of thing paid and after explaining the schooling required he said in the area of $40,000 per year.
so we can pay some guy $40,000 to drive in the woods in the comfort of a brand new truck.
just kind of got me thinking how many folks like him are there, and how much money in my opinion is wasted on that kind of thing.
Ok so do any of you know of things like this, I mean im sure some one out there has run into a huge pit whose purpose it is to withdraw money from a federal account we fund as taxpayers, and if so what are they.
