Funny real comments to Forest Service

Found this link with real comments to the Forest Service. If you like irony, you'll like these. Vote for your favorite. Sorry if this is a re-run.

Camper Comments These are actual comments left on U. S. Forest Service registration sheets and comment cards by backpackers completing wilderness camping trips:
  • “A small deer came into my camp and stole my bag of pickles. Is there a way I can get reimbursed? Please call.”
  • “Escalators would help on steep uphill sections.”
  • “Instead of a permit system or regulations, the Forest Service needs to reduce worldwide population growth to limit the number of visitors to wilderness.”
  • “Trails need to be wider so people can walk while holding hands.”
  • “Ban walking sticks in wilderness. Hikers that use walking sticks are more likely to chase animals.”
  • “All the mile markers are missing this year.”
  • “Found a smoldering cigarette left by a horse.”
  • “Trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building trails that go uphill.”
  • “Too many bugs and leeches and spiders and spider webs. Please spray the wilderness to rid the area of these pests.”
  • “Please pave the trails so they can be plowed of snow in the winter.”
  • “Chair lifts need to be in some places so that we can get to wonderful views without having to hike to them.”
  • “The coyotes made too much noise last night and kept me awake. Please eradicate these annoying animals.”
  • “Reflectors need to be placed on trees every 50 feet so people can hike at night with flashlights.”
  • “Need more signs to keep area pristine.”
  • “A McDonald’s would be nice at the trail head.”
  • “The places where trails do not exist are not well marked.”
  • “Too many rocks in the mountains.”

WOW, go back to the city and ride your elevators to work.

I like this one

If those are comments from backpackers I'd love to see a list from RVers.

“A McDonald’s would be nice at the trail head.” Then they'd have to put up a Burger King, Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Bell and there goes the neighborhood.

We were staying at a motel in Gatlinburg, TN with the river running in front of it. There were some folks in the lobby asking the night clerk if he could turn off the stream, it was making too much noise and they couldn't sleep.

We had relatives visit us when we lived in TX. We took,them to San Antonio. One of the places we took them was the Alamo. No joke - I was asked why it was built in the middle of town!?
