I find Alan Houser's posting on rivalry between staffers and rangers to be
factually correct and misleading at the same time. Yes there are rivalries
between back country staffers and rangers but I have ALWAYS found them to
be friendly. Rangers and Back country staffers get together at the staff
cabins and look to me like they are having a pretty good time of it. The
outward signs of the rivalry as I have seen it has always been good natured
and with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Indeed, every ranger I have seen
takes their "off days" roaming to back country staff cabins and when the
Philmont "Christmas" is celebrated, they really do have a blast together.
These folks doing rangering and staffing are extremely consumer conscious and
you are encouraged to write about every staffer, ranger, camp, etc. you
run into on the trail. They take these trekker evaluations very seriously.
