CRAWFORD, TX - AUGUST 24: "EXCLUSIVE" President Bush vacations on his ranch in Crawford, Texas, August 22nd, 2007.
'Trailblazer' is the code name the US secret service use for George Bush. When seen on his Prairie Chapel Ranch just outside the small town of Crawford, the term "Trailblazer" seems very fitting. President Bush starts his day very early and does really stop until going to bed. An avid fitness enthusiast Bush starts the day with fishing for Perch on his pond at 6am. This is closely followed by his morning briefing where he is joined via teleconferencing by VP Cheney and members of his National Security team. The day continues as Bush rides his mountain bike on trails he has hand built around his 1600 acre ranch. After lunch and with the afternoon heat rising to over 100 degrees President Bush gathers senior staff and the most hardy of his secret service Protective detail for a afternoon of cutting cedar out on the wilds of his ranch. This is hard work and the President delights in watching as his team members wilt in the August sun. (Photo by Charles Ommanney/Getty Images)
