"I had people tell me, most of my life, that this would never happen, that it was a waste of my time." Muggli remembers a time when he first got his driver's license in 1964, collecting fish from the family's fields, putting them in a bucket, and driving them to the Fish and Game office in Miles City, to show them just how much was being lost down the irrigation ditches. "I did that several times, and the guy there just wouldn't listen. Finally he told me, "Nobody cares about this. You can't fix this, and you will never be able to." "My mother told me, back then, 'You shouldn't get mad at that guy, or hate him. He's probably a pretty good guy. He just can't imagine what you are talking about, and he's limited by what he can't understand. You should just keep working on this, and maybe you'll outlive the people like him, those people that can't imagine it. Maybe you'll get it done that way.''
