I know it’s cathartic to express unhappiness and distaste for this person and what he did. I do not disagree, but maybe it’s time to put our energy into something positive and vote with our wallets. Just thinking.

But come on stevesumac you're "just trying to problem solve" I think you need a status check.

In the first place is not your problem to solve.... (if you have no ability to fix it, then it's not yours)

In the second place the authorities are taking care of him as part of the normal process

Go camping, enjoy!

Airstream owners by the many comments in this thread, clearly show and have made Anderson aware that his behavior at the Archs National Park, contradicts our values. Sadly, the authorities will probably view this incident, like you as a minor issue and take no action. Leaving Anderson to repeat his behavior...unless he remembers that his Airstream customers were not very appreciative.

I’ve already voted with my wallet. Camco leveling chocks ordered and on the way. Andersen products have earned spot #1 on my “never buy this outfits products” list. It’s a fairly short list, but it’s permanent...

Hi, no I can't, and won't move on. You can if you like, but this one person won't. It's not hurting us a bit, but I hope it hurts The ANDERSEN business a lot.

SJWs.... Assemble! We must gather the Internet tar, feathers, and pitchforks. We must cyber bully a company into bankruptcy. We must spend our money at camping world. We must sound absolutely embarassed to be associated with this forum because of the comments in this thread.

Dear Vycan,

In three months this will probably be largely forgotten regardless of what anyone posts on this forum. Even if hundreds of people desert the brand, the company will probably survive. If it doesn't, the unfortunate workers at Andersen will get other jobs if the company fails, or has to do layoffs, OR if as happens to many companies - the owners cash out and sell dometic or camco or whoever. Companies fail. Stupidity and grossly offensive behavior by an owner can accelerate that process, and innocent workers get hurt but most rise again.

Think back... Rob Lowe spent a wild night woth a couple of women... and someone had a video camera. The result? I don't think the term "viral video" was invented yet.... his career went in the dumper for 10 years. He worked bit parts, summer stock, and eventually made a comeback on West Wing. PeeWee Herman wasn't so lucky, but his persona was never likely to be more than a passing fad.

Change is hard... if Mr. Andersen wants to change, the first thing that I want to see is comsciousness that the getting his child to participate in the coverup was his biggest moral failure.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Well - not to get all preachy here but you've opened the gates....

John's telling of the good news has an astonishing clue for us by referring to the Law Moses received *as* grace. He ties what you're calling the "old" testament together with Jesus as one grace upon another - one graceful blessing after another. I'm thankful for that because otherwise, I worry God might be a little conflicted.

Sermon over.


No - just kidding there.

Praise the Lord and pass the camcos? (I can't help myself!)

Seriously - I hope he makes it right - signs aren't so good right now.

Shalom out

I think we should continue to point out Mr. Andersen's crime as long as evidence of it exists at Arches.

Andersen was the one who indelibly altered the landscape...and deserves the rewards thereof.

Sounds like maybe he has vanity plates and standard plates. Something like DEFACER2018 to identify his vehicles and the standard IDID2018 state issued number plate. The license plate swap is one of many "How to get by with stuff" tactics that are necessary to teach the kids if they are to become adept at not being responsible for their behavior. Pat

This sarcasm thing just keeps popping up. Got to get help to fix that.
