I just don’t get it. There are really that many unconscious, unaware people in the LPNF? When stupidity puts others lives at risk, imposition of the fine is in order. I hope they all had to pay the $5000. Fine – that would pay for some patrolling costs!

Six years ago today, this blog came into existence. What did I do with my time before bigsurkate? Oh, yeah, I worked. ;-)

  1. unfortunately, it’s the same stupidity here in the mountains of Idyllwild…

  2. Like all criminal thought following a quick look around, ”I’m not gonna get caught, not me.” Glad for the alert catchers.
    Most of all, congrats on your 6th Anniversay!! Wahoo the Kate!!

  3. just lock one up….and get the word out…that will Help….

  4. At the beginning of June, the USFS sign at the bottom of Naciemiento Rd and Hwy 1…said no campfires. The USFS sign at Naciemeinto Rd and South Coast Ridge road said that campers need to have a shovel and water for their camp fires. … Go Figure.

  5. What is considered an illegal campfire? Each of the campgrounds mentioned above are in the list of legal campfire use sites:

    Perhaps the “illegal campfires” are being called in by forest users who assume that fires are 100% banned at the moment.
