RB139 - Stumpy's Harmonica

Stumpy’s harmonica playing is driving everyone at ranger headquarters crazy. Meanwhile, 20 miles away, a thunderstorm sets off blasts at Brown Brothers Quarry trapping several men. The rangers help the miners rescue the trapped men after hours of digging. Next Stumpy and Henry are buried alive by more explosions. They have no way of being located. Who can save our rangers from their rock tomb?

RB138 - The Last Fire Call

“Grumpy” Jenkins is tired of getting up in the middle of the night and fighting forest fires. He decides to quit the service and retire. Stumpy buys some expensive fishing gear, a car, and a luxury vacation trip to Bermuda. Can this be the end for one of the finest rangers in the forest service? Bill shares how he and the Old Timer met.

RB stickers

I would like to print up some Ranger Bill stickers for the kids. Your ideas for different slogans are always welcome. Some ideas I have are the Ranger Bill badge on this page, "I (heart) Stumpy", "Where in the world is Knotty Pine?", "I Visited Big Pine National Forest", "Official Ranger", "I (heart) Ranger Headquarters", and "I Climbed Fire Tower #3". How about the horses - Storm, Blackie, and who can forget Matilda? How about some favorite characters - Houseboat Charlie, logger Frenchy DeSalle, Lt. Garnet Greentree, Col. Anders, or even The Wolverine?
If you like any of these slogans or have some slogans or design ideas of your own, email me at rangerbillclub@aol.com or leave a comment on this message or post a comment on our Facebook page.

RB136 - The Crisis

(aka Stumpy’s Sight) – Stumpy gets hurt while riding trail. Bill suspects that Stumpy can’t see very well. Bill makes the Old Timer go to the eye doctor. The news isn’t good – cataracts. Stumpy needs surgery before he goes blind. But fear is keeping the Old Timer from getting the operation he needs.
