I just don't get it. I was born and raised on the St. Joseph river in southern Michigan. I could swim before I could walk and paddle a canoe before I could ride a bike. I used to love to watch boats, tubes and whatever else go by. I would paddle the river to my Grandpa and Grandma's house on the lake almost daily. All of my neighbors would wave as I'd go by, I'd wave back. It was natural and I couldn't imagine in my wildest dreams that someone would be offended by me floating by their house.
My husband and I have been floating the Laramie above Woods Landing the last couple of days. (Close and only a two week window if lucky.) Every person that lives on the river, without exception, waved at us as we went by. They appeared happy to see us.
What kind of people are these? I know what kind of guy Andy Wirth is, and if you read my earlier post about the dumb ass that sawed a tree alone, and dropped it on our truck as we drove down the Elk River road, you know him too.
Now here's the tricky part. The Chairman of my board, (I won't say of what, as I haven't resigned my job of 12 years, YET), lives on the Elk. I need to know if he is one of these nine. If he is, he and I are going to have a heart to heart. I need to understand what makes someone think this way. Again, it just plain does not make sense.
We, as boaters and lovers of the outdoors, have absolutely no interest in touching their property when we float by and in fact, their ugly monstrosities make the wilderness ugly. Their houses are trespassing on my wilderness experience! (Buffalo Pass road for example.)
Does someone have a list of these nine people? Please post them, or PM me.
