secure parking, like at the park n rides?
it must be nice to live in a total fantasy world with all the pixies and elfs.
Alouette has everything you ask for already, now why dont you go crawling there?

there is nothing the government couldn't fuck up by sticking their nose in. (Kraqa, have a quick look at the useage of 'there' and 'their'. I used both in one sentence to help you figure it out)

restricted access is just that, restricted access, with some fuckhead making $$ off our land and relaxation time.
if you have been paying any attention you might be aware they also privatized our parks.
A quick look at the dumfuckery that resulted in at Alouette would maybe help clue you in that they suck at managing everything.
even in a controlled area like Alouette fuckheads still find a way to burn down the buildings from time to time.

Getting on board to have Government put up structures for idiots to vandalize is just going to lead to a circle of tightening restrictions.

to be honest, the group that frequents this site, that go out of their way to smack down the car burners and dumpers is probably the most effective plan I have ever heard of.
nothing I have ever heard of on PC4x4 or Crib or anywhere else is more fair to all users.
if you fuck that area up, there is a chance someone will confront you about it, but everyone else still gets to use the area unrestricted.

all you are going to do is help get an area closed.
and for what? a chance at getting showers installed?
its 15 minutes to downtown Mission or downtown Haney from Stave Dam.
if you need a shower then roll into town and have a shower, the rec centers must have showers.
if thats too far then get a big 5th wheel rather then paving paradise and putting up a parking lot.

oh I almost forgot, if you read on this site a bit you will see a few of the dedicated have hot tubs they set up at Stave.
if they can get a hottub up n running out there you should be able to figure out a simple shower.

Honestly, like all things i think this park is gonna be really good for some, and really bad for others.. main faults that i see affecting me are :

- Possible VI's coming into stave

- I ride a 2 stroke atv, its gonna be too loud, no spark arrestor,two strokes are getting phased out (banned eventually, no two smokes allowed there one day because there bad for the environment)

- Certain spots where you can and cannot go... if the flats are "getting eroded" then they may be banned for 4x4's ?

- Doesnt really affect me, but no alchohol

- Ive seen government approved downhill MTB trails, there horrible, essentially just downhill single track. All jumps tables.

- They suck at making MTB trails, so i doubt there gonna make good quad trails, and if they do, I bet they wont be 2WD friendly

Honestly, I think stave is fine as it is. Yea theres fuck heads, and shit gets left there, but its nice to have a place to go where you can drive your truck, or anything motorized. Its also a nice escape from the government and city run areas.. almost like a place ruled by the people that inhabit it. If it gets turned into an off road park eventually, I really doubt its going to be as fun. The chaos at stave is almost what makes stave a cool place.. within reason. Idiots torching cars and doing 140 on logging roads have GOTTA GO.

Were all in the same sport just diferent avenues and its time liek this that we need to support each other as best as we can.

This may seem liek a bad thing......drunken boggin probably wont be abel to happen. But they are not shutting it down they are makign it a pay for access area with tones of benefits. I went to the meeting and really its not that bad.

Whatís happening right now:
-Mission wants to get something done about the reckless behaviouse up at stave
-They have contracted a architectural design company to set this area up for a OHV style area
-this is in prefeasibility stage as they have no idea what the people using the area actually want/need.

What is being proposed:
-Controlled pay access to stave lake area (Burma Road and surrounding areaís)
-Camping / camp grounds along the lake side
-Mountain bike trails (downhill / flat land riding)
-ATV Trails
-Dirt bike trails
-Hiking trails
-4x4ing
-Secure Parking lot
-Possibility of showers (for the camping)

Their Goals
-Have a safe, clean place to go enjoy different styles of outdoor recreation.
-They understand that wheeling is here (and they support that) to stay but they want to stop the style of recklessness that happens at stave.


you guys will do what you want. but their are responsible people tryign to work with them so this area can have full mud boggin / rock crawling / trail riding area's.

i for one think i'd be able to afford a $50-100 a year pass to wheel in there all i want with secure parking and a well definted trail system.

SHit you spen how much on your truck...2g's....10g's.....30g's.....

and you don't wana pay a small amoutn to do it in a way that is Legal???

good point there kris, it would make me feel better about leaving my truck and trailer in a secure parking lot, and i dont have a problem paying 50 or 100 bucks for a yearly pass, one thing i asked the guy was if there was going to be certain times that there closed/open, cause lots of times ppl are out there till 2 or 3 in the morning having bon fires and such, he couldnt give me a straight answer, one thing that worrys me, are there going to be more cops out there handing out MVI`S?

Once again you go spewing your mouth about stuff you have no idea about, just like you do on Crawlin. Its time to fuck off buddy, you have a bad negativity problem with anything anyone wants to say.

In all honesty, its GOING to happen wherther we like it or not. You want to have your voice heard and have an impact on what is going on then come out and voice your opinion on how things should be. Shine a light to the government about how things work up there cause they have NO FUCKING IDEA.

Or you can sit behind your keyboard like you do all the time MJ and pretend like you know anything. Just cause you helped out on Pirate doesnt mean you have the right to give people bad information.
