Letter: Camping or moving in?

Apparently it’s a thing to just move up Four Mile nowadays. Seriously, if you ever wanted to save money and buy a fancy pop-out fifth-wheel trailer instead of a house in the Roaring Fork Valley, or maybe just go super simple and tent it, do like what I have seen going on for the past five months up there.

People are literally setting up shop the entire time the Four Mile gates are open. Perhaps we need to start throwing more redneck bonfire keggers with assault rifle/propane tank fireworks displays to welcome the coming of dawn like we used to back in the day? That might drive out some of these fifth-wheel monstrosities and tent squatters that I have seen occupying our piece of BLM and National Forest for months now.
