You might get old someday too - if you're lucky enough.
What about a big running leap over the tracks? Does the railroad own the air? I THINK NOT.
If you run from rr cops is it still felony eluding, like it would be running from real cops?
Simms needs to come up with a pole vault.
I got my new Simms Trespass waders only $700
Is there a zipper?
So, how much are they confiscating on one of those "tickets"?
The big ticket revenue for them sounds like it's coming from the hwy side of Reiter/Cable hole. If that access gets shut down, I fear what's going to happen on the select few access spots that are left. This is a huge bummer.
I've heard (rumors) of being in the $1,000 range
This may end up developing a new sport. " Spey rod pole vaulting".
I didn't even cross the tracks . . . lately. Just posting and thinking and now the NSA and BN thought police are f'n coming to take me away! Screw 'em! UP THE REVOLUTION I say!
I have a buddy that worked for BNSF and met a large number of conductors. I do have sympathy for them, one guy watched as he could do nothing to prevent a teen from getting mashed by his 100+ car train. Seeing something like that has to be very difficult. For that reason I'm in favor of them enforcing a trespass law. I still cross the tracks from time to time, knowing it is illegal. I wish they would just build a passage at some of the most popular access points so that it was safe to cross and neither they nor us would have to deal with the trespass issue. I think that would decrease the number of track injuries and fatalities, but some ignorant and/or unobservant person would still end up dead.
well , it looks like we will all get to know each other better as this policy will limit the amount of areas that you can access to wade fish.
The police enforcing the trespass law on a constant basis is going to end bank fishing for a lot of us from Reiter all the way to Sultan if not Monroe. Most of the water I fish is on the upper sky and I have to cross the tracks for 90 per cent of it. I like to go fish for 3 to 5 hours and then call it good for the day
Now that I do not work a lot any more it was a couple three days a week. Fishing for me has never bee a destination deal but more of anywhere within 45 minutes and I am good to go. Since I started fishing for steelhead when I came here from Montana in 82 that is all I have done except for chums and pinks
at the right time. I do not fish the lower sky from Sultan down because of the lack of access and the boat traffic form Sultan down.
You could always cross the tracks where there are cross points for cars. Dont think there is anything against pedestrians crossing those sections. Just have to hike more.
