Sure you didn't take that from a Tom Robbins book?

Picture the 6'2" version of the statue of David. He told us he was on a 6 day poach and had a really epic story, too long to type, but made for an epic camp fire tale. He said he had rolled up on the Rangers at Pumpkin Springs, told them his tale, gave them his information, and they let him continue his journey with the assurance he would be held accountable at a later date...

Needless to say, we invited him to stay with us, he accepted, and we fed him steak, smoked blunts, and did key bumps as we took turns singing songs around the camp fire. He played songs from some cowboy opera that none of us had ever heard before, one about 24 lbs of Bullets and Steel, which was an awesome tune, but can't find any other recordings of. Anyways the guy ended up sleeping with the TL's daughter, who is hot, even by Texas standards, waking us all up in the middle of the night. The TL didn't even care, I think he was just proud his daughter was hooking up with someone so legendary. He was gone by sunrise. If I ever see him again I will refer to him as The Leg, short for The Legend.
It was great to meet you guys, if only for a brief time. Thanks for dinner!

He was a legend WAY BEFORE he did his Grand poach! Gnarlly knuckle-dragger. Steals women. Gives bad beta. Runs 5th class backwards sans paddle. Avoidance recommended. At least after next week's trip...
