They will most likely stick to the trails so it's really only 450 miles per ranger. With that ranger breaking that new record of doing the whole Smokies in 17 hours or something they might be breeding new super rangers

450 miles is only 17 marathons - they should have that knocked out by noon, so should have plenty of time to stop poaching of wildlife and resources

I really think the extra rangers are really only being staffed to help combat the dwindling numbers of people in the backcountry
