We have free right to there when we please and when we want and do what we want.Do ya think that if we had a key, that a event like the spudspudspudspudspud run would ever happen ....It gives them control over the area,they want to know who's going and who's coming.....


Fuk-em I clean up before and after I get somwhere,I dont need a fuking key



If we keep cleaning up after us and do what we can,and if they put a gate up well,as Kev said,there is plenty of ways in there

Relax everyone.....nothing has happened yet and I'm meeting with MTSA tomorrow about this (and other things). The Four Wheel Drive Association of BC continues to be absolutely opposed to a gate on Hale Creek/Francis Lake/Sunrise Lake/Lookout Lake/Lodestone Lake and Wilson Lake recreation sites. Our position has not changed. The issue is that idiots continue to destroy resources placed at the site..... Tables aren't standing up well to those who decide parking on them or hacking them up for firewood is a great idea.....

Then don't put tables and other resources at the site. Prior to the 4wdabc taking it over, not once did I find myslef saying... gee i wish there was a picnic table here, or wishing there was a dumpster so that I could leave my trash there. If there's nothing there for the idiots to destroy, then you won't be replacing picnic tables and what not all the time. Sounds pretty simple to me. You guys do a great job going down there once a month to clean up, just leave it at that. Don't replace things for the idiots to destroy again.

I think I mentioned this a while back regarding Davis Lake....you have to hit these litterers where it hurts, in the pocket book!

In conjunction with a Conservation Officer these sites should be staked out(secretley) and a huge fine passed out to each and every one that violates.
Believe me, those fined will squawk so loud that everyone will hear about it and the littering/vandalism will stop.

Can you imagine the look on these peoples faces as they're leaving and suddenly a C.O. pops out of the bush and starts handing out $5000 violations.

Oh and I agree with Wildmike…if there was nothing to destroy then there would not be a problem. The only thing I would like to see from a group who are funded is a few shitters maintained.

Who wants to go wheelin where there's CO's hiding all over in the bushes??? I definitely don't.

I go wheelin to get AWAY from all that.

Don't get me wrong - I'm all for cleaning up. I take out EVERYTHING I take in... and then some whenever I see it. I'd just like to see the trails as a place where you can still "escape" to without being monitored by someone hiding in the bushes.

Just my .02

Uhhmm. Read my post more carefully. I said "in conjunction"
e.g. One weekend a C.O. hangs out with a couple wheelers at a trouble spot like Hale or Davis wearing plainclothes. Then at the end of the weekend after "observing" the C.O. don's his/her uniform and hands out tickets with a couple of Wheeling dignitaries at his/her side.

Don't be paranoid. The bush wont be "crawling" with the boogeyman. Theres not enough $ to afford that, but I'm sure they could manage something once or twice a year.

Sends the message to the province that wheelers are largely clean and should not be stereotyped and gates just promote more vandalism and at the same time it sends a message to the shitheads to clean up their act.

Personally placing their hands on a boulder and hitting their knuckles with a hammer would be more satisfying but taking the law into my own hands has never worked out well for me.

I was guna say nothing wrong with someone coming and checking whos camping in problem spots and taking plate numbers and coming back later to see how they left the place but fukme is this what it has come down to. This is all stuff that was beat into me when I was a kid and I've taught my kids. I know you can never stop fightin for the use of our "public land" but these cocksuckers sure make it tough.......... as for the gate what happens when someone screws up the lock or looses the key while a group is in there? It seems like it would work in a perfect little world, but if it was a perfect world we wouldn't need it.

Final word.....no gate for Hale Creek/Francis Lake/Sunrise Lake is being contemplated. A gate will be placed on Mystery Creek FSR in the near future, but all direction is that the gate will be located BEYOND the Lookout Lake trail (my and MTSA direction to Forestry is very clear about this). Wilson and other points around the north/west side of Chehalis Lake are officially closed to access due to continued risk of slides.

Let me know if I can answer any questions.......
