Report the puke

after reading the rules our friends WERE IN COMPLIANCE. To report complaints go to info@parks.ca.gov that from the state website or the District office for Santa Cruz tele 831-335-6318. How to stop a good time on vacation! Luckily the travelers were able to continue forward and thats a good thing.I'll post my findings tomorrow nite, DG

sorry to read about your experience bh'lady..

but thanks for sharing it.

some folks have no business hosting and some campgrounds are sorely used and abused and in hi profile locations...

perhaps a bit of both in this story...

it would appear the actual reason for eviction was the blue tote...

i've seen other urban/high use campgrounds that forbid external tanks,

while some locations will allow them but only if 'completely sealed' systems....

as i recall oregon state parks include some wording to the effect of 'sealed' systems only if using a blue tote...even to the point of all gases contained, no venting of any fumes...

a completely separtate issue is the older unit limitation....

this rule (10 years or more) in some flavor is used more often each season at campgrounds nationwide.

as mega class a mohos continue to occupy more of the rv camping experience.

somewhat like the 'approved breed' dog list many cgs are now using...

i'm always surprized the old a/s owners/buyer never mention this to prospective new buyers of old units...

20-40 year old units (shiny or not) cannot just camp anywhere....

we overly read about "a 34 is too long for camping in yadda yadda" by folks who own shorter units...while actual 34 owners may know of 2-3 places they cannot go, and don't.

it would seem ALL vintage trailer owners and potential buyers need to become aware of this issue.

i've camped in many parks with that rule and when contacted in advance about the issue,
they usually ask "what do you have?" when the reply is an airstream, only once or twice has the follow up been "what year?"

and more commonly they just say "oh you're fine come on and visit."

it seems ultimately they want to limit school bus conversions and ragged class Cs and poorly maintained sobs with more duct tape than siding...

cheers
2air'

also keep in mind that general area of kali is a whole nother world now....

we used to boondock on the pacific beaches for free or camp in the bank and school and church parking lots without any issues...

those days are so gone....

Kick butt

AS far as I'm concerned if the State Of California issues you tags for a trailer or any other damn state and you drive on the roads then you should NEVER be denied assess to a STATE PARK, private property different story. Yup I still wound up time to

I have to agree with Neil and Lynn, write a complaint to the governor. Be sure to include the exact date, time, and place to ensure the "proper" host is identified. A complaint to the governor will have to pass down through 3 or 4 managers before it gets to the host and each of them will demand an explanation. Include as much information as possible and add quotes of statements if you can. Ask for specific answers to specific questions. This will get results.

I can say this with some authority from my experiences working over 30 years for Oregon State Parks. Even the ridiculous and unfounded complaints were a real headache to deal with, and unlike employees (if there really are any) it is very easy to fire a host.

Don't let this host get away with this. In Oregon a host's reputation precedes him to the next job. He may find no more hosting positions available.

In North Georgia we pinch their heads off when they come out like that left coast punk! I don't care where you are or were you are from, there is no sense in that! I might've stuck the old Nike cross trainer about 4" up his alpha sierra sierra, then ask him how much 4" really matters.

Like we've told a many of his kind...welcome to my town. Come on vacation, leave on probation.

PS... Git er Done doorgunner! Yeee Haaa!

I just sent the following email:
Quote:
AirForums.com is a public forum with a membership of over 20,000 Airstream owners. Currently on the forum is a thread about how a couple from New Mexico were treated and thrown out of a California State Park. This is a link to the thread; http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...und-32373.html
This thread is being viewed by thousands of members who will avoid this state park and perhaps others. I invite the Govenor's office to review the forum and respond.
Thank you for your email to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

What an unpleasant fellow. That is what I say when I'm thinking. You worthless piece of doodoo.

So DG when you wanna go throw a whammy on his dumb a*%?

This is the type of person that pushes every button I have. Which usually leads to unpleasantness. Fortunately I have the proper I.D. and attitude when the law shows up.

I'm sorry you had to endure this zero on your visit to my fair State. I hope you'll accept our apology and that you'll come back to Norcal with us again.

We are planning on staying at a private camp in N.C. during July. Website shows gorgeus photos. But, after later reading all the penalty rules we are having second thoughts.
If you arrive before 3p.m. check in it's a $5 fee. If you arrive after the 10 p.m. check in cut-off, you pay a $5 per 15 min fee. You can use a credit card at the camp store, but, you will pay an extra fee. All visiting guests are $5 per day.
Worried now that these folks are so tight that they will be watching the electric and water meters.

Reminds me of a past thread about a too-hands-on campground owner setting a lot of rules, including 'leave the trailer, turn off the A/C.'

How about a BB under the valve stem cap. Slow leak and when they remove the cap the BB drops un-noticed to the ground.

Little people on power trips really burn me also but I seldom handle it all that well.

Georgia is pretty. Never had a desire to visit until the grandchildren moved there, Hawkinsville. Been there three time now and of course Gramdma wants to move and stay. I'm thinking North Georgia would be close enough.

Sacramento bound

The office of the State Parks and Rec is located at 1416 9th st. Sacramento. I'll be making a personal appearance there this afternoon trying to see the director, Ms.Ruth Coleman. I'm sure she will be very interested in this incident.As I watched the sun rise over the vinyard this morning I am reminded of the peaceful beauty this State of California offers all who witness her grace and beauty. To deny anyone this opportunity is unforgiveable. DG

This just sucks. My mom goes to that campground almost weekly! She lives in the area, and loves the sunsets and jogs on the beach. It is just a lot, but who cares when you're nearly on the sand!

We have yet to join her due to scheduling... but now??? She even mentioned seeing a 196_ Airstream with a placard designating the original owner still kept her rolling.. (she never got the chance to plug the forum)- So, apparently this guy was manning the cement ship at the time?!

Go DoG!
