It's been several years since I last met "Doug" at Cheap Beach. The last time, he was stinking-drunk and was itching for a fight; the last straw was him rifling steel darts into the central oak tree. I called the cops, who arrived quickly to have a talk with him.

I recommend not getting into a fight with him. He's drunk and possibly mentally ill (chain smoker, strange behavior). Just call the cops as soon as he starts getting belligerent. Do not hesitate. He's got a full beard, drives a small pickup truck, and has a nice old golden retriever dog.

I spotted "Doug" this evening as well. Passed him off as just another lonely guy hanging out in The Gorge. Usually I enjoy seeing strange dudes, they make me feel less strange.

But I did see a few weird behaviors that made me wonder if he was playing with a full deck. So thanks for the warning Biff - it's key to know that he's had some prior history at this launch.

Thanks for recommending I not get in a fight with him.

Otherwise, I regularly engage in fisticuffs with random strangers sitting on their tailgate minding their own business. Friends too. #fightclubftw

Be as sarcastic as you want. Doug is trouble, and I am not ashamed to look out for anybody. Including Doug...who does NOT mind his own business.

not that it's the same, but we had a mentally ill fellow wandering our neighborhood last year. he was discovered by a homeowner in the homeowner's driveway, confronted, and he murdered the homeowner. beat him to death with a blunt object.

you never know with mental illness. those guys are always sailing starboard in their heads, so best to steer clear.

I called the Corps rangers on a guy who was threatening to shoot people with his shotgun at Roosevelt, and they told me, "Oh, that's Crazy Andy. He's well-known for threatening to shoot people and for carrying, sometimes brandishing, a shotgun. We'll come talk to him ... again." They did, for an hour, and then they left, leaving Andy and his shotgun -- illegal in federal parks -- behind for us to deal with.

I have Andy's license plate # and van description. Next time I as much as see him I will call the county and state police instead of the Corps.

I didn't see no vagrant today. Mayhaps he blew out of town.
