    I'll drop out after saying....
    If I was in MA, I might be the only person carrying a weapon. However, from my point of view, be it right or wrong. I made a heck of a lot of enemies working for two out of the three agencies. Granted the odds are low; especially where I camp.
    But a saying out here in the Rocky Mountains' States is just cause you don't see one on the belt, does not mean there is not one on the person.:eek:

    We better get off this subject and go back to being upset about those who cut through the campsites, etc.:D

    No need to agree or disagree, it's either legal or not.

    I’ve lived and camped in Colorado my whole life, and I wish I had better news for you, but it is exactly as bad as you think it is. You can’t get away from it!

    The evolution of this thread is why we avoid the three G's here at PUP. God, guns and government. Let's all chill out and heed these wise words from f5moab...

    How on earth did this go from bad camping neighbors to a thread about guns? Boy, you Americans are persistent...

    that's why I like primitive campgrounds with well spaced sites, or even better is boondocking preferably by a river with good fishing.

    We have almost exclusively camped at Provincial or National parks. We book our sites well in advance and tend to avoid the open fields, opting rather for wooded campsites that are well spaced apart. Hence, potential bad neighbours are a little farther away.

    It shouldn't be a surprise that people who like the outdoors and camp may also fish, hunt, and shoot.

    I get that, but the convo turned into using guns as an implied threat or as an intimidation tool...

    I think a lot of the "intimidation" was tongue and check. You being from Canada probably don't see it the same way. (That was not meant to be an insult)

    Canada, I thought that Manitoba was in Africa. I was about to comment that I had never heard of many popup campers in Africa.

    Manitoba couldn't be any more different from any location in Africa.

    Reminds me of a story, I know it doesn't belong here,

    A couple was at the airport when they spotted what looked like Eskimos. The wife said, " Go see where they are from."

    The guy went over to them and asked them where they were from.

    The Eskimo replied Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

    He went back to his wife who asked, "Well, where are they from?"

    The man replied, "I don't know, they don't speak English.

    LOL. That's a funny one. I'm in Winnipeg, BTW, which could also be considered an odd name.

    Odd? Where I grew up and now live in New Jersey there are many name from the native Americans. (Lenni Lenape) I live near lake Hopatcong. I grew up in Netcong.
    The lake where I grew up is lake Musconectong. We have Macopin, Pequannoc, Mahwah ,Hohokus just to name a few. Winnipeg doesn't sound odd.

    We have plenty of odd english names for communities, like Pig, KY.
    We even pronounce them different, like Lafayette, TN is pronounced Lu-Fay-Ut. :)
