Re: MORE LAND CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
Don't start that crap here jo-jo.
We have tried to get the local 4X4 club to self police and clean up, that didn't work.
We put up signs, fenced things off at great expense, and nothing worked.
Trash barrels were destroyed or stolen, and the trash continues to pile up, some if it household trash from two counties away!
And you can't reach the area with out a 4X4... So you tell me who is dumping there.
Buy your own damned land, jo-jo, and support the idiots that show up there before you say anything to me.
The local 4X4 club couldn't do anything about it, the land owners couldn't do anything about it, and you can't do anything about it, so don't call names here.
If you want to do that, go over to one of the 'We hate TeamRush' threads, there are several going, and I'm sure they will be glad to have you....
If you want to supply the money that would normally be PROFITS for us to keep the land open, and pay for damages when a bunch of Bubbas tear things up, I'll keep it open.
I figure they have done over $50,000 damage already this year, and that doesn't include the extra taxes and insurance on 'recreation' property.
Will that be cash or charge, jo-jo?
It's just not worth it to keep trying to get along with people when the majority of people treat us like dirt.
Now they can take their butts over to the state land, (which by the way, has NO 4X4 trails at all, and vehicles of any kind are banned outside of the parking areas.
Now, you think I should keep hemorrhaging the trust left behind by my grandparents to support their kids in old age, so a bunch of idiots can tear things up...
I don't think so.
And if you owned the land, you wouldn't have waited this long...
The trails look like a garbage dump, the camping area looks like a garbage dump, and not one single person has ever volunteered to help clean it up. Not the first one, including the local 4X4 group.
The only crew that cleaned up behind themselves, and only themselves, were a bunch of hippies that lived in an old school bus that washed up one year.
They left when the bus left two years later, with the high water in spring.
My neighbors all think I should have done it years ago, like they did, but we tried to not be that way.
I always try to stick things out, but this is the last straw.
It's closed for good, and that is that.
This will be the LAST time we have to clean it up.
Next time you see some bubba throwing trash out on the trail, or pushing over a sign, or chaining onto a tree with out a strap, or hill climbing in areas not designated for it, or breaking beer bottles for the fun of it, and YOU don't say anything, just remember, some one is going to get fed up there too, sooner or later, and YOU will be out on your butt there also...
I almost forgot, there is not two acres of corn standing in a 180 acre field.
It was a GREAT crop this year too... What do you think that is going to cost?
Those morons had to tear down TWO fences put up just this spring.
The Soy beans fared a little better, but they were a poor crop anyway, so that field is pretty well totaled....
Destruction is not covered by insurance, because it's in the designated 'open access- recreation' area...
That changes today. Legally and Physically.
