Owner of Andersen Hitches vandalizes in Arches NP

In case you missed this, the owner of Andersen Hitches vandalized the one of the most famous arches in Arches NP and then posted a photo of his family in front of his graffiti !!!!

Hopefully he is heavily fined at the least.
A Boycott of Andersen hitches has been suggested.

What ever happened to the basic principle of "take only photographs, leave only footprints, and pack out all your trash."

I certainly hope this clown gets a visit from the appropriate law enforcement folks, and gets appropriately, and severely punished...

What a lousy example for the kids...

He was asked to stop and continued anyway. Trying to remove licence plates...he's sorry that he was caught. Setting a bad example for the kids as well. They are so proud judging by their smiles. He and wife should be banned from all National and state parks. The kids are allowed to parks with a ''responsible'' adult............................................. ........... Always leave a place better than you found it...one of my creeds.

Let's all take a big breath. He definitely made a mistake and I suspect he has learned from the public shaming. Let us all hope we don't make similar mistakes in the future, as we are all human.

I love my Andersen products and this lapse of judgement has nothing to do with the company.

Mr. and Mrs. Anderson making a $50,000.00 donation to the national parks would be a good start. I'm a bone head public speeches, and annual National parks fundraiser as well.

Pretty despicable behavior. I, for one, have been a customer. Never again.

We all speak with out wallets.
As for me, where is my torch and pitch fork. I don’t own any Anderson products but if I did they would be recycled.

In this age of instant social connectivity I have to wonder just what they were thinking...
Pretty easy to be disgusted with them!

Good Lord! How does someone who makes camping products do such an ugly thing?

I'm going to ask him for a refund on my Andersen levelers I'm going to send back to him. What a horrible thing to do!

For whatever it's worth - here's Camco's curved leveler. I will be getting a pair of these this weekend.
