By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester

I can feel the emanations of frustrations from your tortured soul over this Mt. Tussell conundrum.

I've been baffled a few times in my goings and comings and had to resign myself to seeking help from a higher power. No, not the Supreme Deity but one of the plethora of research departments at our very own, Great Wooded South University.

So, on your behalf and in an effort to sooth the savage beast raging within, I contacted some folks who know some folks and had Mt. Tussell put on the plates of several different, world-class GWS researchers.

After circumventing the bureaucratic logjams usually encountered at institutions of the magnitude and scope of GWSU, I was presented a theory that might be a balm of Gilead, so to speak, for your "thorn in the flesh." The summary of the formulated theory was presented to me in the form of three questions and they are:
"Might it be that your friend's search for the elusive Mt. Tussell might be revealed in the experience, itself?"

"Might it be that Mt. Tussell is really Mt. Tussle?"

"Might it be that tussle which is defined as 'a struggle, a vigorous encounter and a scuffle' might be a place, Mt. Tussle, which reflects the difficulty of the struggles in life to prosper or maybe even survive?"
Ed, I won't bore you with the hundreds of pages in this report but I, along with the entire research staff who worked on this project, sincerely hope that the three questions might lead to some new venues to travel, if not closure, in your efforts to connect the dots in your decades long quest to encounter the origins of Mt. Tussell.
