People can be funny. You disagree and that means you must be "one of them." No, I don't work at the park. I have good friends that do. They work hard and take care of their family. Just don't see why some people have to be down right ugly toward others. Guessing maybe someone got a ticket...Whining on here wont help a thing buddy.

I think the losers of this town ran out of people to talk about so they started on the park rangers.

So what you rode those trails since you were a kid. Do you own the property? Hell no, you just own a four wheeler. Think that means you own the world, don't you?
Come on my property with your stupid little ride and I'll show you a trail that doesnt belong to you when I tap your ass with a 12 gauge slug.
Happy Trails.

I know, but the attitude expressed by Uban chaps my ass, although it is very common hereabouts. People think because they went on a certain property as a kid, it belongs to them. If you assert your property rights to keep them off, they are insulted, righteously indignant, that someone would deny them their imagined birthright. I've had to deal with such ignorance too much and his post just pushed my button.

As for park rangers, they are probably decent people by and large. But most people who work for the feds live in a different world. The CAN be a little over-territorial.

I have never had a park ranger harass me in anyway so I don't think they go around just picking on people for no reason. If you're breaking the law then it's their job to do something about it. It's amazing how self righteous people can be when they're breaking the law.

Most of the rangers are not from around this area and are transferred in. And some come with some pre-conceived notions about the area and people of the area. After a while some see their ideas were wrong and blend in with the people and the area just fine. Others maintain a look down their nose, arrogant attitude toward the locals which only causes problems for them and the locals.

And as posted earlier, some are very territorial about the park and go over board. I know of some people who have encountered this type of ranger and have sworn off using the National Park ever again. They were not doing anything illegal just caught an earful of attitude from a ranger. Which is a shame. It's not the rangers job to be so belligerant as to run people out of the park. The park really does belong to the people, not the rangers.

Most end up striking the right balance and get along fine, protecting the park and yet not driving people out of their own park. It really just depends on the ranger, how they want to be perceived.

Park rangers need to protect the park and the animals in the park. Rangers need quit playing like they are the police, stopping speeders and traffic violators on 25E and such. Stay in the woods and do your jobs rangers.
