Re: Gate? What gate?

New guy misplaced the key. :lol: I considered that possibility. Next road over, the gate was cut halfway through. Either it was a scofflaw who was interrupted, or new guy's boss showed up with key. Oh, just thought of something, could have been somebody (recreational user or straggler employee) who...
