Synopsis
When Mr. Rich can't join Richie for a planned hiking trip, he asks their butler Cadbury to go in his place. Richie doesn't have high hopes for the expedition, wondering to himself what a "stiff-necked" butler knows about hiking. However, Cadbury soon leads them off the regular path, opening Richie's eyes to parts of the estate that he has never seen. Cadbury repeatedly demonstrates his expertise and resourcefulness as an outdoorsman, teaching Richie a thing or two in the process. When asked later what Richie wants to be when he grows up, he says he wants to become a butler just like Cadbury.

Indexer Notes

Although this reprint is not of Cadbury's first appearance, this story is the first time that both the reader and Richie see that he is a man of action. It begins the close association Richie will have with Cadbury going forward and opens the door for the role Cadbury will play in future action-oriented adventures.
