So, The End Of An Era.............

This really [censored] to post, but it is what it is. We have reached the end of a 43 year run at our camp.

I won't go into details, but guys dropped out, Dad invited my sister, stuff went downhill....That's about the sum of it.....

[censored]. Plain and simple. Been at the place for 28 years and now I have to plan a trip up to grab my gear for the last time.

FWIW - If you make the change from a camp to a family owned property, make sure you keep some rules and bylaws in place. Everyone has to play by the rules, or it will to go heck pretty quick. 18 months for us....

This has caused irreparable harm to my family and tears a huge hole in my heart....

This place has been the last place of stability since my mom passed. I knew I could always go up there and find some peace....

Guess now I just need to find a place to pitch a tent......

Hope they enjoy it....

I believe the camp was in Driftwood, correct. I was in Weebullls this past Sat night and Sunday afternoon. I have followed your posts on here on some stuff at camp. That stinks.

Yup. Driftwood.....What's the weather looking like up there this week? I may try to head up Friday and grab my gear if the weather is okay. It's a 9 hour drive, so I have to plan accordingly.....

Sorry to hear.

Unless you're in a camp you own yourself, it can happen to anyone. It just makes it harder with the history and being family.

Im on the deed, so they have to talk to me at some point.....

Just don't ever think your family are your friends when there is money or property involved. GET IT IN WRITING......

Sorry to hear about this trapper. Hope another place becomes available for you to kick off your boots.

SRY to hear. Things that look bad initially, usually have a way of working for the better. I pray that is the case for you.

If your name is on the deed you should be in the drivers seat, unless everyone else's name is on there also.......
