“There’s no God-given right to mud-boggers”

Destructive recreation:
“There’s no God-given right to mud-boggers”


It’s May “two-four”:  begin the bush parties, litter, trucks in the river. . .  the real Fubar.  I wish I could find last year’s Sustainable Resource Development blog post about the perennial rotting couches. There will be liquor bans, fire bans, trail closures, bear warnings and check stops. Responsible recreationalists will understand.


Next time you head out, stop by the MD Ranchland Hall at Chain Lakes and check out “The New War Zone”, a classic  newspaper feature about the efforts of rural municipalities to address destructive recreation.
