He used to be one rugged guy back in the 70's!! I know he always wanted a 4 cylinder lombard like his grandfather had! I haven't seen him in some years but i heard his memory was failing. Im sure he wishes he had kept the machines he sold to Harry Crooker!! :( :(. Dealing with anything in the Allagash wilderness waterway is a P.I.T.A. since the Feds have control, It wasent so bad when Merle Scott was in charge. Don

My boss is Merle's son in law. We are getting it back to a friendlier Park like it was  under Merle's watch.

Trev, my grandfather was a game warden at Daaquam in the '70's. Oral Page. Ask any of the old-timers around there if they remember him. He passed away about 7 years ago.

Back in the late 70,s when i was wandering around up in northern Maine looking for Lombard parts,the Warden from that area took a day off and showed me around, i cant remember his name at the moment. We waded across the St.John where Lacroix had his 9 mile bridge to see the old steam shovel, when we were in the shovel poking around the Warden got into a wasp nest and got stung a few times ,i felt pretty bad him taking time off to help me and getting stung !!! ;D ;D Don

It may have been him. I don't know how much you remember about him, but he had a fairly slight build and a very quiet and laid back demeanor. That didn't stop him from arresting people though, when they got out of hand!
