Anybody at yellowstone?

Rumor has it folks are taking the barricades down. The government can't close something that is owned by the people.

I hope these rumors are true.

So someone seems to think that if you come to a do-not-enter area in a normal open park (perhaps for safety reasons) that it's ok to just ignore the sign and go in because "the people own it"? What nonsense. That will get you arrested or escorted out.

In this case, there may be no one "on salary" to enforce the closure, or they may still get arrested. I hope so.

Sorry to ruffle your feathers, just asking a question. I wouldn't leave if I was there. They have no right to kick anybody out.

They can out up a sign that says enter at your own risk, no staff on duty.

What did your congressman tell you? Mine is one of the ones helping to cause this problem & his response was; "Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. Please know that your views are important to me, and I will provide a comprehensive response as soon as possible.".

Lets hope it is open for you soon.

I don't want to go political. From top to bottom, both sides of the fence, there are problems. At a time like this it shouldn't matter who you voted for, it should bring us all together as a country and make sure it doesn't happen again.

I think you need to re-assess your statement.

Oh contraire, contraire my friend. You might not leave voluntarily, but I can guarantee you would leave. You might even loose your camping equipment in the end.

So what I'm getting in here and in personal messages is, without a doubt all those veterans should have been thrown in jail yesterday.

Yellowstone is not close to the War Memorial in Washington, DC. Two different animals.

But are they not closed for the same reasons? No staff? By government standards the are both national parks on public land.
