Re: OT Forest Fires
The Boise area smells like a camp fire. It makes me want to go camping, but where?! They are starting to close off camping areas around here too. The fire up by Salmon is probably the most damaging as far as camping/off-roading goes. Even the greenies in Ketchum are "concerned". They might just have to unstrap there dumba$$es from that tree they were trying to save so that they can get their own chain saw and cut it down to rebuild the log cabin that they just lost in the fire. Big time hypocrits [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] up there. They fight to close down trails/roads to motorized vehicles so that they can doze their way into a nice building site for their new cabin, complete with a driveway for their yuppy SUV. Last time I was up outside of Ketchum camping, I took my family out riding (no place to Jeep [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]), we passed a MB SUV that was crossing a stream that the Forest Service road passes through. Probably the closest thing to mud that they've ever been in. I still waved out of courtesy, but they didn't return the favor (big surprise [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]). I thought about roosting on them, but I figured that they didn't need to go running to their other greeny buddies with more ammo to get that road closed. Sorry for rambling, but some of this stuff that the FS/BLM does just makes me sick! Bret
