Hey, I guess we have them too here in Virginia then. Granted, they don't
actually wear chains, but there are busses that bring about 20-30 guys all
dressed in gray or blue to pick up track from the highways. I guess what
tips me off they're from prisons is the solitary uniformed police officer
looking guy carrying the shotgun.
Ok, let's make this AT related. I was driving down Route 42 to the trailhead
in Bland County one day and saw all of these signs. "No Tresspassing by
order of B.C.C. Warden." "Wow," I thought, "This Mr. Warden is pretty
strict about tresspassers in his empty fields." A little while down the road,
I pass the entrance to Bland Correctional Center, BCC.
