Heads Up ShoSho

was at ShoSho last week and noticed a very sketchy looking car with to very out of place looking men hanging out. I started watching them from afar and it was clear they where watching Boaters and boaters cars. One of them took notice of me and they took off before I could get a lic plate.

Just a heads up!

It always saddens me to hear of suspicious characters looming about boat ramps. Many of us are very trusting - placing our keys in the gas cap or inside the bumper and such. Anyone who picks up on this trend knows we can be easy prey for vehicle theft. I always keep my keys with me (secured inside my PFD pocket) so that my greatest excitement is on the river and not filing a police report

Shoshone is a hot bed for theifs...I was ripped off by some private boaters, ( oh yes..i got it back alright ) it does not really have to be non-boater looking people. I would like to give the White River nat forrest a special thank you for doing such a wonderful job of counting heads to charge the commercial outfitters ..while theft is a common occurance..good job ya douche bags

2008: My car was broken into in the Grizzly creek back parking lot (N side of I70). When I left the parking lot, I was the only car; when I got back... there was a guy & another car (NOT a boater)... Being friendly... I walked over to say hi, at which point they sped off, and I realized my window was broken, and most of the stuff gone. I got in my car chased... but, it was a lost cause.
