    …When I transferred to the Marin office from the Malibu office 6-1-81, they put me on the 1900-0330 shift working with an old timer named Jim from Corte Madera south to Divisadero on U.S. 101. The first call we got was a jumper, recovered by the Coast Guard down by Fort Point. I took the paper and we finished the night in fog and wind patrolling Doyle Drive and the bridge, the Waldo and the RBB and the flats. Jim clued me in about the beat. About 2:50 we left the toll plaza and headed back to the office to put it to bed. As I went across the bridge I accelerated and said ” lets see what this thing will do “. Over the hump at midspan and down hill to Vista Point, I was flabergasted to see a doe standing in the roadway at that exit. I started to brake bit Jim said ” Don’t brake..HIT IT ” so I got off the brakes as the doe split down to E. Fort Baker. On the way back to the office Jim explained that these deer live at E. Fort Baker and come up on the freeway to eat the cigarettes that folks dump while waiting in line to exit n/b U.S. 101 at the Vista overlook. He also told me that that crashing to avoid a deer was much less adventageous than just hitting the damned thing. I kicked myself for speeding over a road I was unfamiliar with. Won’t do that again. But then, who would expect a deer on the backspan of the GGB ? Not me, not then.
