Man Travels 45 Days By Mule In Search Of A Job

Gillette, WY (AHN) - Hearing that jobs pay better in Wyoming, a Minnesota man traveled 1,500 miles by mule - actually, two of them.
After losing his driver's license 10 years ago because of a hit and run, and spending time in jail for nonpayment of child support, Rod Maday had no choice but to ride his mule "into town" to look for work.
It took Maday 45 days in the summer's heat from his home town of Boy River, Minn. to Gillette, Wyo.
Ending his unique journey on a mule, Maday arrived at the Department of Workforce Services on Friday. He was attired in a torn shirt, dusty blue jeans, spurs and a cowboy hat.
Maday, who also has a missing finger on right hand, said he receives a small amount of money every month for his disability, which he uses to eat and sustain himself.
The unemployed traveler used to ride mules while he hunted for raccoons in Minnesota. He averaged 30 miles a day, but the most he ever traveled in one day was 70 miles.
According to AP reports, Maday left Gillette Saturday morning, riding west toward the Bighorn Mountains in search of a "ranch job or an outfitting job." Calling the mule his "best friend" Maday said he is "not getting rid of him for nothing."
Crypto is a protozoan, not a virus, and it can form a protective shell that prevents it from being killed quickly by chlorine at normal dosages.
There were 18 crypto outbreaks in 2006, including Illinois, Colorado, Louisiana, and South Carolina as well as Wyoming. There were at least two outbreaks this month in eastern Iowa.
There was a major outbreak a few years ago in the city of Milwaukee, which sources water from Lake Michigan. Many got ill, and some died. The water was chlorinated, but not adequately filtered (fine filtration removes Crypto).
A crypto outbreak in Gillette is no reason not to go there; an outbreak can happen anywhere. I have to admit I don't do much swimming in public pools anymore, tho...

Back on track, I'm quite confident that the Gillette rally will be fine. I've ridden throughout the west, although not in Gillette itself, and there will be plenty to see and do. Good roads, good scenery, good country. If you need to stay out of the swimming pools, big whoop.
Stand down, gentlemen, and put your weapons on safety. No need to get crazy over information (published in the USA TODAY) that even suggests that all is not well in OZ.
I found the clip interesting (still do) and flavored it with my opinions. Which is actually the essence of a public forum, when you think about it. Otherwise, this site would simply be reduced to a static technical journal via the internet.
I don't live in a world that I need to classify as "glass half full," or "glass half empty."
Hell - I drink what is in the glass, buy a round for everyone at the bar and have a good time.
I had a great three days in West Bend, and look forward to Gillette.
What I do not do, however, is ignore interesting facts or their extrapolations.
Since Gillette dare not be scrutinized on this site, I need say no more on the subject. May it turn out to be everything a member hopes to experience at a rally.
SCRUTINIZE stresses close attention to minute detail
As in reporting in the media, a non-biased factual detail must present the truth. Go face to face. go there. look, listen, ride and feel and tell me the place sucks. don't be a armchair scrutinizer full of biased inunendos, and don't refute the pictures or narritative I brought back from my journey, it's impolite at best.. It's less than 30 miles to the nearest fun on two wheels. The water is drinkable, the people are great.
