    From the first line of the article;

    UPDATE: After the outcry, the Forest Service backs off.

    and here's the updated article;

    The U.S. Forest Service Is Backing Off Its $1,000 Fine for Photos in the Forest - Esquire

    Also, the article clearly states it was only for those (press, etc) that were shooting photos for commercial purposes.

    And, the photographer's right clearly states that you may take pictures in any public setting where there is no expectation of privacy.

    I figured this would be the end result. Otherwise, I would continue recording but not show any defining features, such as signage.

    I figue the whole thing was a Texas-based plot. One thing CA has on Texas is Public Land. That is your land that land is my land....but not in Texas. There, it's all private-proppity. I think the USFS has to have a few Texans in the policy-making woodwork.

    Here's the original "Map of the Whole Forest" thread. I forgot how wacked that thread was. No wonder it was binned. And some potential sock activity in play.

    Thanks DJ. I thought it was kinda funny that folks were accusing the OP of being Highdelll. I'll have to give Highdelll credit, when he gets controversial he signs his name to his words so the OP wasn't him.

    In my younger years, I went to a hot spring in the San Bernardino Mtns. There was plenty of bare knockers there. So, I have to expect that nudity is legal in the forest.

    That's good to know. Here's to keeping nudity legal in our national forests. There's nothing quite like walking along in a deep dark forest only to come upon bare knockers.

    I once got knocked out by a set of knockers deep in the heart of the forest caveman style.

    Well many moons ago I ventured deep in to the heart of the forest with my date. She was armed to the gills with a very large set of knockers. We wrestled around a bit on the forest floor where I was apparently knocked out. When I came to rhe forest had become chilli. So like a good caveman that I was I rubbed two sticks together and built a fire.

    That's interesting. I just realized tonight, at the velodrome races, that nowadays hippy chicks DO practice "hair management". This very attractive young woman, who is, I think, the girlfriend/ husband of one of the racers, stood next to me at the rail on the finish line to watch her man win the race, and more importantly, to snap a pic of him winning on her i-phone.

    It was a pretty good pic, with him in sharp focus and the others, whom he beat out by just a wheel or two, kind of blurred in focus. She showed me the pic, and I told her it was really good, and also that his win was even more impressive considering the relatively enormous aerodynamic drag created by his full, waist-length beard.

    Anyway, her hair was' natural brown/summer blond color, only she had her hair done up in dreadlocks. I always wonder if crawly thing live in dreadlocks...how can somebody maintain good hair-hygeine with them? It seems like washing hair like that would be really difficult.

    It made me wish that her hair was as 'natural' as the rest of her appeared. Without any noticeable make up, she was really quite striking.

    It also goes to show just how little attenion I pay to things other than riding when I'm on my bike. I see everything, I hear and smell and feel everything around me, my peripheral awareness is highly developed......it's just that all of this input is filtered through the riders' perspective prism when I'm in "ride" mode.

    So I don't notice stuff like hairstyles, social conventions, etc. when I'm on my bike. Then, the world is entirely for riding to me.
    It's probably why I love cycling so much. For at least a little while, it's EVERYTHING.

    Ray nice write up.
    As far as dreadlocks and hygiene. I've always heard [I could be wrong] but peope with dreadlocks don't wash their hair. That's how they keep the dreadlocks going. I often wonder if little critters live in them as well.

    I think it has more to do with not brushing, rather than not washing.

    It's a couple weeks of not washing your hair along with twisting them up. After they are fully established you can wash your hair again.

    Have you been a participant in this style. Or is this hearsay.

    Dreads are something you can buy at any wig or costume shop in you want to try out that lifestyle.

    Add some bad body smell and nobody would be the wiser.

    I find I enjoy pictures of the Hole Forest a lot more than pictures of the Pole Forest.

    My cousin had dreads during her "run away from home, do a boat load of drugs and marry a tattoo artist/drug dealer phase".

    IMO - Boyonadyke said that although willing to obey all forest rules, he prefers holes to poles.
    And this is good, does not objectify the sensitive holes, and keeps poles both rigid, and able.

    In speaking of dreads, how's this* -



    Recently encountered while JRA on a ridgeline singletrack bordering the area below,



    ^ this trail connects to many more miles of legitimate, rarely accessed backcountry trails.

    Now, what say you - Obey all forest rules, or become an outlaw?
    (*fine, up to $5000, and 6 months jail.)

    [Am not promoting civil disobedience, or the hypocrisy (chainsaws), just wondering how others feel about this situation.]

    Having running river water move over you is hardly what you can call washing. Heck it's hardly what you can call rinsing for that matter.

    I could believe that. She actually smelled pretty good. I, on the other hand, after riding 11.5 miles at around a 12 mph avg. speed in one of them 'wicking' jersey t-shirts, stank like a corpse.

    Funny how the closer we get to becoming one, the more we smell like one...

    Ivory soap or "plain" soap with no perfumes is what the Rastas use to wash their dreads..the whole dirt only and no washing thing comes from the white westerner's approach at growing dreads.
    No I have never had dreads but I spent allot of time (few years back now) reading and learning about the Rasta/Bob and the One Love Movement..
    Anyway all I'm saying is you don't have to be a freakin stink bomb just to wear dread locks.

    I used to work with a guy in a reggae band many years ago who had dreads to his waist, and every time we went into a pool anywhere, he would beat them like he was killing an octopus after every swim... don't remember him smelling at all bad... no worse than anyone over in the Fart Thread at least...

    Why does ivory soap or plain non perfume soap make a difference. It's the water that screws up the dreads. At least that's the fear the westerners have of ruining their dreads. So they stink because they don't wash them.

    Thanks for the share. I was unaware of it. It might be useful for many people who don't know about this rule.

    Right!
    Be sure to change your socks before spreading the rule.
