You know the shutdown is serious when a park ranger comes by your campsite with an eviction notice.

Wow. His day must totally blow chunks. He has to kick folks out, lock the gates and then go home to figure out how to pay his bills. Sorry about the camping trip though - tough week for a lot of folks.

Call the Chinese Ambassador to get these parks back open. They are the ones holding the Notes to the Deed on that property and I am sure that they want to get paid.



Visit a private campground and let the free market work.

Our camping neighbor didn't even know about the impending gov't shutdown so he wasn't a happy camper when the ranger told him he would have to leave. I'm glad I wasn't the messenger of the news.

Ya know it's serious when the FLOTUS announces that due to the shutdown she's sending her "tweet account staff" home and her tweets will be very limited.



And (gasp) the panda cam has been shut down! No watching those darling pandas at the zoo! That was actually released as an "urgent message" by some in the media.



I *love* that the WWII veterans (some of them likely were among those who stormed Normandy) broke down the barriers and visited *their* memorial.

Hats off to you guys! And even in your wheelchairs you stand taller than the alley cats in the DC litterbox.

FTR, I heard on the radio today that those being evicted from parks have "48 hours to pack up and make their exit".

I'd use every nano second of that 48 hours.

Ditto, but I heard that they passed a "law" that guarantees their pay in times like these. Sickening....

From what dealings I have had with rangers, this is the stuff they live for. They seem to put on a sad / stern facade but inside they are doing the "Snoopy" dance. They may be a bit late on a bill here or there but Congress paid them retroactively during the mid 90's shutdown. My bet is they will see pay for their time off.
