Input sought for new chapters

The first nine chapters of this blog-story (which follow below) were written in the months immediately after my departure from the National Park Service some years ago. I resurrected the manuscript from obscurity because the format of a blog seemed like a good place to display it and maybe would re-ignite a passion in me to finish it.

I have received some wonderful input from friends in the agency, both current and former rangers, about the direction of this storyline but am interested in gathering a wider scope of ideas and suggestions from other rangers out there that have read this blog novelette and may have things to contribute. I am particularly interested in the latest acronyms, initiatives and "visioning sessions" that might make this a more realistic and hilarious narrative. "Truth is stranger than fiction" was never more true than as it applies to the bureaucrats in the green and gray.

Thanks in advance.
