Can't wait for this one! Living in Tres Piedras, the last Rainbow gathering was a total zoo here. Woke up one morning in 1995 during the gathering to find an abandoned - it turned out to be stolen - truck in my rural driveway. It took hours for any police to show up, and then it took me doing some research to not only find out the truck was stolen but even find the Colorado hay farmer who was the owner. Our little town has never been the same, as quite a few Rainbows found cheap land and have stayed here. I for one can live without it being here...

The area the Rainbow Family (18,000)camped in has never been the same since. Permits must be obtained for more than 75 persons, this must be inforced. and licensed security
should be made manditory.

Rainbow people are so 'free' as to be completely unconcerned with the consequences of their actions.

I hope their permit gets denied.

hold them to the same standards of any other group using public lands. Any group that large shouldn't be allowed anywhere where the land can't handle. They should consider renting a convention center.

They should consider paying attention to personal hygiene. Neither is likely to happen.

that the entire area would be better off flooded or burnt than have these scum leave it the way they did last time...Where are the so called "Forest Gaurdians" now?

There are some real ignorant wingnuts out there. The Rainbow Gathering is a bunch of hippies coming together from all over the country to trip on acid and dance naked in the woods. They don't have anything to do with ACORN or the Rainbow Coalition. Some of you folks seem really confused...

Nothing like a know-it-all from Los Alamos. I live in Tres Piedras, so don't tell me where to invite the Rainbows. I also worked as a wildland firefighter for 6 weeks in May and June 2000 to help save your town during the Cerro Grande Fire. I also had a US Forest Service thinning contract right near the last Rainbow Gathering here in the Tres Piedras area in 1995, and I got shut down by the USFS because they were concerned about the Rainbows safety. Don't assume you know anything about me, Why Not. The address you see is because my IP address is via satellite.

BTW - most of the Rainbows ARE sorta hippies, and they are already here with their seed camp.

We can only hope nature fights back some day. You know, snakes, spiders, and maybe some squirrels making it not so "kind" of an experience for them.

I dont know and I dont care who you are or where you are from.I just know these Rainbow hippies are for the most part not wanted in this state.I dont claim to know everything,but from your post it sounded like you were defending them.I am not from Los Alamos but thanks for fighting the Cerro Grande fire.I assume you got paid for it right?
