LOTS of WAY overloaded trucks coming into the campground too at least 2-3 were riding on the bumpstops they were so loaded down.

Two... Numerous persons ejected from a truck bed...

I really mean no offense to anyone but in this situation, would changing the words on paper change behavior.

At what speed does the human body, untethered, become a projectile? Where is common sense, Slow The Heck Down!

At a COE campground (which I really like) on the Tombigbee River in AL a guy was playing with his dog and throwing a Frisbee in the river, people watching said you better not do that because there is a gator nearby. Well he ignored them and guess what, the doggone dog was gone. When we checked in they gave us a printed warning to watch out for gators but they usually hung out around the boat ramp where they clean fish.

You mean they did not let/make the ‘gator read the instructions?

And people laugh at me. I do not let me two chihuahuas freely roam our yard because we have a number of resident (to me that means within a mile, and yes that means we can see the nests in our alder) Osprey, Bald Eagles and Owls.

Poor dog!

Some.e people just do t get it. I'm sure that since day one long long ago that when campers first came out there was an over loaded truck.

considering how thick our law books are in PA and people still get arrested everyday... A piece of paper will not change behavior.

This guy was swimming up and down the river ..and stopping adjacent our site. I had a dog tied off at the site... Prolly 25 feet from the river, but up a moderate hill. DW was wigging out till I finished setting up and got the dog inside.

I think he was spying the dog.

I was there last week. Did you throw a bottle with a note in it and see if you find it New Orleans in a month?

Yes that would be Lake Itasca, MN! I think they "Bait" people about water flow reaching NO in a month! Throw a bottle in the water and receive a "Littering Ticket"! The boat ride from the Lodge across the lake was nice also! Youroo! !

Poor dog!


I had super-reactive dog a while ago that I used to walk late at night to avoid issues. One night we were out next to a field; he was sniffing around at the end of his long-line and a great horned owl swooped down. It got to around 10 feet above him and then saw me and did a double take and flew off. Scared me half to death! That dog was around 16lb, so I don’t blame you one bit for taking care of your little guys!

it takes the water 90 days to get from the headwaters to the gulf! we live a block away from the mississippi river in Winona, MN so we did not litter in our beautiful river. but im pretty sure i could smell all of your dirty feet in the water down here!
