weird stuff at cisco, UT?

Can anybody remember the name of the older thread about the weird stuff at the Cisco boat ramp? There was one thread recently with a Guy talking about disarming some yokel at the ramp, but I feel like that there was another thread a ways back before that that had more Cisco horror stories. I tried searching with various patterns but you wouldn't believe the number of posts with westwater questions. (Maybe we should sticky a post with all pertinent ww info for those too lazy to use the search bar?) Anyway, just curious if someone remembers the post name off the top of their head. Thanks!

I think those people only come out at night. Like the Hills Have Eyes only with groover poisoning instead of radiation.

advice when driving through Cisco

Roll up windows,
Lock doors,
Do not stop
Drive thru the area
Do not stop and never camp there.

You have been warned.

Colorado concealed carry has reciprocity in Utah. Exercise said right in Cisco.

I am concerned now, We are paddling west water this weekend, and my plan was to have my wife hang out and relax at the take out.

she was going to relax, maybe sup at the take out.

Do i need to bring the hand gun? I've never seen a house out there, and there never seems to be people.

For what it is worth

It's not just WestWater Take out, it is any secluded take out
it is not a slam against boaters, shuttle drivers or anybody else that might be in
the area for what ever reason

If it was my wife or any female, I would not feel comfortable leaving them
alone in a secluded take out like Cisco Landing or any similar take out for that matter, but If I did I would be darn sure she had a reliable pistol, loaded and she knew how to aim and pull the trigger. If it was an automatic I would have extra clips and be sure she knew how to reload.

My advice would be have a pistol as listed above and not drive out there till you guys are scheduled to arrive. If you get there early and have to wait just keep some adult beverages in the cooler to help pass the time.

Too much bad stuff going on these days to take even a small chance. Flame away, maybe I am too protective but I would not take the chance.

Cisco always had a weird feel.
But I camped at the takeout almost everytime I ever ran WW in order to not be woken up all night at the putin.
Never had a problem from about 1990 - 2006.
In fact we used to joke about how we would get rich if we reopened the Cisco store and offered shuttle and tow out services like they do on the BWCA.

I'd have her wait at Fish Ford for most of the day, then come up to the takeout when it's about time for you to arrive. There will be other recreation folks down there, big Cottonwoods for shade, decent camping too. Even a pit toilet, or at least there was a few years ago. Like Billy (LSB), I think the safety issue is way overblown. Cisco itself is not the takeout. The mutants probably never venture away from their tire-topped condemned housing; plenty of irradiated rats to feed on at night.

Westwater take out

Almost every time that I run Westwater we camp just upstream from the ramp. I mean just upstream in the big flat spot. Never had a problem. Never even see any one. Doesn't mean I'm not prepared for the situation but...

You deserve a good paddling!
