Yellowstone Safety and Hiking

Remember that you must not approach or feed any wildlife in the park. Park regulations tell you, You must stay at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves and at least 25 yards (23 m) away from bison, elk, bighorn sheep, Key to the Park Roads deer, moose, and coyotes. For your safety and the animals’ welfare, especially avoid all wildlife with young. Never hike alone. Make some noise, so that you will not surprise an animal.

The fivers were juniors who had served their apprenticeships in shore-based engineering, mostly shipyards, and who had come to sea knowing about basic engineering but knowing little of shipboard life. They acted as juniors to the main watch-keeping engineer officers. These fivers felt themselves superior to cadets because they had already done their training, although cadets, particularly senior cadets like Paul, looked down on them as novices at sea. Fivers could be quite ancient; one of ours was 26. The second table had the mid-ranking officers: the second and third mates, the third and fourth engineers, Sparks and the chief steward. The wives sat with their husbands, understandably. The four senior officers sat on the square top-table, which was nearest the serving hatch. The captain sat imperiously under the light of the porthole, flanked by the chief engineer on his right and the chief mate on his left. Opposite him sat the second engineer. Two stewards in white coats ferried the food to us from the hatch.
