PostSubject: Need a new sleeping bag?   Thu May 26, 2016 3:17 pm

Just grabbed a new sleeping bag at a screaming deal during the big REI sale. It's a Big Agnes Whiskey Park sleeping bag (how can you go wrong with a name like that?) Big Agnes makes great gear, I have a Lynx 3 tent that's just right for moto camping. Their bags are pretty innovative, it's more of a "sleep system". There's no padding/insulation on the bottom of the bag, but rather a sleeve for your sleeping pad. This has a few advantages, this allows for a bigger (Guzzi Boy sized) bag to be packed smaller, the pad provides the insulation, and since it is captured, you never roll off the pad!

At any rate, REI members can pick one up for a mere 118 simoleans including tax and shipping!

REIMEMBER2016 gets you that additional 20% off the Outlet price.

I'll be coupling mine with the Thermarest NeoAir Camper (large) that I picked up last season, cushy comfort!!!

I hear there are a lot of nice new sleeping bags left over from a little party on Lake Shasta...some are slightly soiled...

What a bunch of whiners.  I used to work for the Montana Fish & Game and had responsibility for a small lake and recreation area.  Yes, it got trashed, but it goes with the job.  These guys are whining because they didn't get their Starbucks this morning.  Do your frickin' job and quit complaining.  Or maybe we should find someone else to do it.  Someone that doesn't feel entitled.

Seriously? Sounds like you're okay with boatloads of over-privileged white kids trashing the environment and letting someone else be responsible for cleaning up after them. It may be part of their (Park Service/Fish and Game) job, but there's no excuse for this kind of blatant disregard for Mother Earth or the people who give a shit about her. I'm no prude, drink and fuck to your heart's content, but really, have a little dignity and respect for yourselves and others.

I know, this forum is not supposed to enter into political or philosophical realms, but seriously, how can anyone defend this behavior!

What I have an issue with is that people complain about doing their jobs. Yeah, it's a mess that shouldn't be there, but clean it up and stop complaining and calling in the media. Pretty soon some uptight politician will shut the place down and they won't have a mess to clean up anymore and may not even have a job. I've seen schools and towns lose revenue because some counsel person didn't think it was right or proper to let events that include alcohol fund them.

That article was full of information on when and where these events take place, but not once was there a mention of the presence of law enforcement during the event. The easiest way to deal with the situation is have one or two uniformed rangers walk through the middle of the party. Don't threaten anyone, just ask them to clean up their mess. I've done it - it works.

A "park ranger"'s job is to pick up after drunk kids?

Simple.
It's an annual event.
It's held in a national park.
OK, permits per person $100.
240 house boats x
Av of 20 people per boat x
$100 = $480,000

Fuck, wish I owned the place. I'd clean up after them.

Street, I think what ghezzi was saying is that if the messy little ass-wipes were made to pay an entry fee they would find somewhere else to go, maybe mess up their own back yards Evil or Very Mad
Our national parks have a sign, " Don't feed the Animals, Take home only what you bring, Leave only Footprints "
