my letter to arnold
Well Arnold you have done it again. My family camps regularly at an average of 2 weekends per year. Summer is basically every weekend with the remainder of the year 1-2 weekends a year. Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, Presidents Day, Children birthdays etc. We have three children and more often than not have an additional 1-2 fiends of the children along.Your cost increase in 2006 of annual passes doubling over night was a lot to swallow. We did however maintain two annual passes as we need an extra vehicle to accommodate extra kids who do not have the opportunity to camp with their own families.Now that the State has increased camping fees to such unreasonable rates for parks that are in need of repair, utility issues, bee infestation issues not dealt with, over flowing dump stations due to poor maintenance I as a California resident can tell you to stick your park system up your back side! I for one am done with the whole States ram rod up my backside. You buy my annual passes and camp spots to keep this poorly run State afloat. I will be returning to wilderness areas that don't have some State Employee in a stupid Smokey the Bear hat sitting on their hands!It is my wish that your entire State sees continued decline until the people wake up and tell Government to get the hell out of our wallets. Most of your Park Rangers think they are working some kind of work camp for criminals with attitudes that make the whole experience a jock!Good luck Arnold; you see I am just one family of five that have lots of families that camp together who all feel the same! So get a rock and start sucking something else's blood.Oh and by the way your job as acting Governor has stunk from day one!
