Interesting and timely article on closing AZ dispersed areas in Prescott National Forest precisely because of squatters taking advantage and ruining it for us responsible people. That is why we can't have nice things...

I don’t think OP is talking about people obviously breaking the laws like they were in Arizona. I think he’s saying that people following the rules are selfish. Those are two completely different issues.

Have any of you noticed people leaving their trailers in great campsites on BLM and USFS land during the week and then showing up on the weekends to camp?

I haven’t noticed it where I go. But I tend to go way out into the boondocks where not many other people go on purpose. Plenty of space out there in the world. No need to go where others are.

I do the same thing but come hunting season,there are no places to go where others aren't..It's during hunting season they all reserve there spots by leaving there rigs there prior to actually being there...It's just the way things are here,nothing you can do about it.

I'm not surprised. Idaho is where we were when a 3 trailer group decided to camp right next to us and when they left they drained their black tank on the way out.

I wouldn't dump my junk in a spot to hold it but if it's allowed through some spirit of the law, so be it. I'll use it when I'm there and leave it to somebody else when I'm done rather than deprive others a campsite for selfish purposes.

What word would you prefer? I’m ok with you saying whatever word works for you.

16 little words with a very powerful meaning derived from deep routes.

I agree with you mkirsch....... If someone does not enjoy my company, I can be gone, for good.....never to darken your 'door' again. Too many wonderful places to go to. If one is taken, find another. If someone doesn't want you around, family, friend, or stranger, pack up and leave for far off places of your choice. Life is too short to be caught up in the drama of unhappiness, hatefulness, or being mean. I live my life, you live your's. Don't get in my way, I won't get in your's. Treat others as you wish to be treated. If others treat you differently, move on. Relax, be appreciate of the ability to move across this country with relative ease, freedom to make your own decisions, and within a cautioned level of security.

Time to get off my soap box before someone finds me a nuisance and if someone does, everyone is entitled to their own opinion!
Safe travels to all.
