    I for one do agree with getting rid of some of the eye sores that are out there in da pits. That being said I am one of the true gravel pit campers. For almost 18 years my wife and I travel almost a 1 hr drive to have a weekend getaway from the noise of the city. To relax in the quite outdoors. Now i have gone thru 3 trailers in that time and only last year spent 10 grand on another one. I do think the Gov. should have some kind of law that can keep both sides happy. In the pit i go to there are about 25 campers of which I would say 12 are TRUE campers. People that come for the weekend or holidays and keep their site clean and looking good. The others may be there sometime over the summer, but don't look after their campers and sites.
    To my understanding there always was a rule about our camping style. Nothing can be perminent or built in these sites. That being said the camper should be moveable. If the trailer is not regestered or have a sticker for that year than it is not moveable. Why not go that route and that way the Gov. can get some more revinue for these crown lands. Other wise if they kick everyone out it would be just a bare peice of ground. Another one is if you want to Pit camp why not have a yearly fee that you can pay so you can camp. Another income idea for Gov.. I for one and a lot of other people I found out this year would have no problem with this fee. Just not knowing that you go out next week and find a letter on your trailer that you have 60 days to move.
    Any how, yes get rid of these people that don't look after their campers and make eye sores of our great prov. and look after the ones that enjoy the great outdoors and pick up after these people...
    Got to go...Off to da pit again!!!!

    I don't think its the governments responsibilty to ensure business can continue to make money off illegal campers. There is something in that equation thats not right. Its like opening up a drug store directly across from a crack house and complaining when police shut it down that you lost business..

    i think poor rod kelly doesn't understand the first rule of owning a customer service buisness is location location location and he did have a prime location for campers, but now his campers went to either a new location or their home location. talk to the buisness owners in these areas and we'll see if those campers moving caused them to stop consuming or do they just now do it somewhere else?

    When you're half in the bag and you can't take a chance on driving into town it was nice to know that tons more beer was just a hop skip and a jump away. The chances of getting pulled-over for a DUI during that jaunt was little or none.
