I know what it is.
My question still stands. Why sell a lot when you cant camp on it? Why not just sell keys to the gate.
ummm... think about it.
If you own the land (or a piece of land) or otherwise have a stake in the property as a whole, aren't you more likely to take care of the land, to be more respectful of the land and the people with whom you share the land?
You get these assholes who are just out to make a quick buck who sell the keys to jackass little spoiled sh!t kids who come out there and dump trash everywhere, steal from and burn peoples' camps, do donuts in the parking lot/camping area, tear down trees just to do it... they tear the living sh!t out of the land and ruin it for everyone else... they tear the **** out of the trails and even the main road so no one else can get in or out... and they don't give a sh!t because they don't have a stake in it.
We have property out there. We haven't been around as long as the "old timers", but in the relatively short time we have been out there, it's amazing the changes in the landscape. We've been trapped on the property because the main road - yes Groves Road between the property and 441 - was so torn up from assholes rutting and tearing it up, that we were stuck for hours. We've had our camp robbed. We've had our camp nearly burned down. We put a whole lot of time, money, blood, sweat and tears into making a decent camp for us all to get away from the job stresses and the all the BS of life and just go out there and RIDE. And when you come home to your camp and find it's been robbed, or all the hard work you put into it burned down because of some douche screwing around with fire... IT SUCKS.
There aren't many places to ride in Floriduh. So if the landowners in SE are a little picky about who they sell lots to, and if they're a little picky about making sure the keys aren't copied, and tracking down the people who are selling of fraud copies... think
about it. If you had a vested interest you would feel the same way, too, I guarantee it.
(And btw, you can camp anywhere you want, as long as there isn't an established camp there already. The caveat is that if the legal landowner of the dirt you staked your tent to shows up, you'll have to move. I'd be careful who I was buying keys/lots from if I were you. There's a lot of bad deals involving SE land.)
