camping trips:

16. "Too many rocks in the mountains."
17. "Need more signs to keep area pristine."

More Ignorance
In 2001, in Muskegon, Michigan, a man was charged with unlawful use of
a harmful device after he blew up his home while sniffing propane gas
and smoking marijuana. No one was seriously injured in the blast, which
blew the home off its foundaton and damaged two neighboring houses.

There now, don't you feel better about yourself? I try.
Remember, only YOU can prevent idiots from going outdoors and running
the country, so do your part. The use of padlocks, shanks and ballots
is recommended.....preferably not in that order: vote before you risk
Peace out,
