I am a maintenance man/caretaker at the Adirondack Mountain Club's Heart Lake property outside of Lake Placid, NY. It is the main trailhead (and the busiest trailhead in NYS) to the Adirondack High Peaks. As such, I have become friendly with most of the local Forest Rangers.

So today, one of them approaches me and asks for my help. Would I be a volunteer in a field sobriety training for new officers? I get picked up and dropped off at my home, I get to drink ALL DAY on the State's dime, I get to drive drunk as hell on a closed course, and, best of all I can have ANY alcoholic beverages I want! So I'm going to put together a short list of beers to drink, and I might also let them know that I am particularly partial to Maker's Mark. It makes me drive better!

How about that!

Be careful, you might end up training their jailers too.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

BWAHAHAHAHA

Seriously. Get it in writing before you do anything. This would really suck if it were unauthorized and you got hurt or something.

Actually this is very common in law enforcement, they will put you through field sobriety tests and also take you BAC. go for it.

I did one of those trainings and it was funny because they kept everyone at a .10 bac but because everyone reacts differently to alcohol, some of the lightweights were hilarious to watch tripping and giggling about everything. Have fun and have a drink for us..
