Vandalism of shuttle vehicles - Green River

Just an FYI for Green River boaters using shuttle. All of our vehicles were vandalized when we took out Monday. A group coming in after us had been warned by the rangers at Lodore of this - nothing was said to us when we talked to them. All vehicles had gas/diesel thefts, several ran empty before reaching the nearest gas station in Vernal. In addition, any loose gear in trucks including toolboxes and hitches was taken. Is the park service doing anything about this at all???

What section of the Green were you running? Lodore? Where exactly were the vehicles parked?

What a drag. You'd think with the takeout being inside the monument they could police it a little better...

We put in at Lodore and had our trucks shuttled to Vernal UT for take out. We were told that vehicles with locking gas caps had holes put in their tanks...

By the way - great trip, perfect weather!!!

We were in the group behind you Amethyst Farms. We had 4 trucks 2 of them were completely emptied and the other two didn't seem to have anything happen to them. I talked with the shuttle company and they put our trucks down at Split Mtn. on Friday night. I also just called the Park Service and he is giving the police my info and they will contact me. Hopefully they can stop it from happening in the future.

A few years ago we had the drive shaft from one of our vehicles swiped from that lot.

I'm tired of leaving my truck and worrying about assholes like that. Those bottom feeders need to be taught a lesson. Wouldn't it be sweet to teach them one? I say we create a set-up and....

A little "vigilante" surveillance of the takeout could net some Vernal douchebags...
