You mean we can't put up signes that say " Hey Frenchies, stop shitting all over the place!" with graphic drawings? LOL.
What ever happened to the idea that the RCA has an area on the kiosks for pertanant climbing information? It seems like that has been kind of pushed aside. We don't have any space at the small parking lot. I'm not sure what is still at the big one since I last saw it, but it seemed to be dwindling. The place is becoming completely sterile (except crap) and like a rest stop as I mentioned before since the FS has become more active. It's going to have no soul left.
According to her under fedreal law nobody can post anything legally including the RCA unless it meets federal guidelines and is approved by the USFS. Does that surprise you? Just more BS from our federal government!
Justin will be contacting me about signs Mark. I think you know him. Dave
i'm not surprised the usfs wants to control signs posted on property that they legally control...
put yourself in their position. if you were legally responsible for an area, would you allow every individual with an agenda to cover the area with signage promoting their personal opinions? i don't think so...
it's a shame that people need reminders how to poop in the woods, but apparently they do. and perhaps a couple of informal signs would have done the trick.
but instead, you involved the usfs and you are now pissed that they want to follow their rules on land that they control.
if you had really cared, you could have just printed up a bunch of signs as suggested by mark (personally, i like "zut alors! queebs et queebettes, ne poop-a-vue pas ici...") and put them up without telling the forest service. by the time the usfs would have gotten around to taking them down, your message would have been spread.
that's called "actually doing something...."
geting pissed at a summit volunteer or a bureaucrat on the phone or spewing on the internet is not "actually doing something."
ps in another thread there was some mention of the new trail work at rumney. immediately after the work was completed, i heard a number of very vocal critics. i found this ironic, as the people who i heard complaing the most were people i never, ever actually seen do any trail work themselves....
i guess it's the old adage, "those who can, do; and those who can't, complain about those who do..."
