It's we the people, not all for the goverment. I'm not talking about the Government. I'm talking about successfully managing how we communicate with a man in a Ranger's uniform to achieve a successful outcome for OURSELVES. Grow up rebel ! Cheese and Crackers and fight and hate all you want... I get far less grief working with LEOs... But I am a cop's son. I know they are people and rarely hold in their heart the malice toward us some are implying. When you make someone your enemy you get what you asked for. In the time, we have all wasted on this thread Cleonard could have resolved this with the BLM. Proof... I stopped typing long enough to call the BLM Ridgecrest Office just now. Margaret was very helpful and said let me put you to the voice mail for the Chief Ranger for the area Ron Lewis sp?. All the fellas are in a meeting just now but he is very good about returning calls and should be able to help you get this straightened out. I'll let you guys know what Ron says when he calls. Bottomline is the "I hate LEOs" attitude gets you nowhere. If you guys would only try to see it from the other side... There just is no grand conspiracy at the Ranger level Fox Mulder. Bureau of Land Management Ridgecrest Field Office 300 S. Richmond Rd. Ridgecrest, CA 93555 Phone: (760) 384-5400 Fax: (760) 384-5499 Contact us by Email PS - Ron just called before I could even finish typing this. Cleonard... He said fax the proof of US Forestry Spark Approved Status and he will dismiss it at Court so you don't need to even deal with that. I suggest you get it in writing just in case when you get this all worked out with Ron. Ron's fax is 760-384-5469. Tell him your buddy Jeff is the one that called and you really wanna get it all worked out legal like as your pipe is a US Forestry Approved Spark Arrestor and the design does NOT fit the probe test. You just need to convince him you did not modify the pipe. Just explaining how it is designed and faxing him the documentation you have should do. He sounded very reasonable ! BTW - I quit going to Glamis because of the clowns that go there... Not because of law enforcement. I quit riding on Thanksgiving and stay at home with my family because of the clowns that come out of the wood work ONCE per year... Not because of law enforcement.
