Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

it was me who mused that you surely didn't think parking too close to a gate was a criminal act. I hardly think of a non-moving vehicle citation as a criminal act. Whether it is parking in equestrian area or not. In the way everyone I know uses the English language, never have I heard people who got...

Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

Interesting censorship going on here at OregonHikers, I guess you can't point out when a crime has been committed, but you can use this website for sympathy when you do disregard the regulations. PS: I'm certain this post will be censored away too. as someone who loves to rabble rouse, you've reall...

Re: Am I an insensitive jerk, or is the USFS wound a bit tight?

All of the above Chip! :lol: Just kidding. As long as the gate could open and traffic wasn't being impeded, I think the FS is looking for something to do.. They're so understaffed and over-stretched you know. It's like the absolutely asinine amount of "No Parking" signs for miles around Lower Lewis ...

Re: Visit the Central Cascades while you still can...

The last day to object to this is tomorrow (Monday the 31st) I believe. To re-iterate if you did not make a comment on the initial plan in the spring you are screwed and wasting your time to do this, basically. You are better served to contact your elected representatives about this. Preferred place...

Re: ODOT proposes fees for Gorge waterfall corridor

So someone from TKO board might want to contact ODOT or metro or whomever wrote this proposal. Seems like fraudulent misrepresentation.

Re: ODOT proposes fees for Gorge waterfall corridor

It's been an interesting observation watching things unfold in our backyard (the gorge with this, the central cascades with their situation).. that even with very local actions, the amount of bureaucratic/legislative 'expertise' you must be steeped in, the deadlines, and the review and analyzing of ...

Re: ODOT proposes fees for Gorge waterfall corridor

Re: I'm so tired of boot manufacturers lying to us.

fit... maybe i am mental (that's a rhetorical statement).. but i used to obsess over footwear, backpacks, and anything else really. And the more I focused the more I found issue. and hot spots. and pre-mature wear. And discomfort. Sure..some things do work better or worse than others for all of us. ...

Gifford Pinchot National Forest is busy closing roads and is currently working on a way to manage campsites, they have requested input for which sites to "Keep open". While this is in the beginning stages the FS has already announced the "sustainable trails" project as well and I quote "This will b...
