    Clearing some trails

    Another beautiful day - decided to walk my property some more before the underbrush greens up - also picking of sticks and limbs along the tram road that runs parralell to the creek that I keep mowed. Here's a couple shots along the way:

    As I am getting toward the end of my property I see something - what the heck is this?

    I was on this tram road last Tuesday or Wednesday when I was marking my survey stakes and it wasn't there. Huh.....must have something to do with trout season opening yesterday. So hike back to the barn for a hacksaw and vice grips - took care of that chain in short order. Carried the stool and chain past my property line a bit and dropped it there.

    As I said in another thread I've lived here for 20 years now and never felt the need for trespassing signs. Now just this weekend I've had to physically block my driveway and now this up on the tram road. When I went back up with my tools I also brought along a post that I pounded in the middle of the tram road - have to wait to get more signs when I go to Tractor Supply on Wednesday.

    I just don't know what the purpose was of someone chaining/locking that stool to a tree right there.......

    I don't mind anyone fishing the creek along my property as long as they stay off my mowed lawn area. But when I think of what we went through to buy this property and the struggles to pay for it and the taxes all these years it kind of makes me mad. Guess I might be getting grumpy in my older age and sickness but I bought this place for privacy and to be along that beautiful creek. I just don't want to share!

    I recognize that stool....it belongs to the Dali Llama, who sets by the creek to meditate.

    I posted my properties the day we closed on both of them. The neighbors all got pissy about it, and I've had a couple people cited for trespassing. I even tell all of them we bought the land to get away from them, but they don't seem to "get it."

    Me and the critters and any family or friends I happen to invite over are the only animals I want to see on my land. I'm not hostile about it, but I expect to be left alone out there.

    Around here, if it isn't posted, you're chasing your tail. You need to confront folks to make them leave and then they have to refuse before you can get them on trespass if there isn't a legal sign saying otherwise. I'd rather not need the signs, but I'm not giving up instant prosecution without them.

    What happened to respecting other people's property? Why is it a foreign concept these days?

    You make me feel a bit better - it's not only me who thinks like this.

    And your last sentence - as I mentioned we've been living here for 20 years. Yeah, there has been a rogue person here and there walking across the property but last year and now this year it seems a lot worse. Is this something like a new generation and their lack of respect or something?

    My biggest problem is the creek - seems to be a popular section to fish. When we first moved here I actually was respectful of the older guys who had been fishing around here for years - talked with them about staying away from the house area and especially Bentley (English Mastiff) and they were fine with it. I actually had in my mind to put signs on the upper end of the property stating "walk in fishing only" but changed my mind after today.

    Bentley, although getting old like us, has been on high alert and patrol the past couple days. He roams free (doesn't even have a collar) but has never left sight of the house. Also he won't go down the bank to the creek unless one of us is there with him. A couple times over the years it's been kind of fun to see the reaction on people's faces when they are half way across the yard when Bentley barrels around the corner of the house and is in full sprint toward them.....

    How about some "Danger: Chemical Spill" signs... "Caution Trapping In Progress". Or the old standby "Tresspassers Will Be Bitten (or SHOT, your choice)".

    It's a damn good thing for the world I don't have more than a 1/2 acre!

    It's that "entitlement" thing they have going on. They just don't think you have the entitlement to run them off your property.

    Warning the neighbors I was going to be trapping was the start of our bad relationship. Instead of just being the "jerk" who wouldn't let them freeload off my land, I became the guy who wanted to hurt their free-ranging pets.

    I've never been one to harm an animal who's owner was the one who needed a beating. It's not their fault their owners don't care enough about them to keep them out of harms way.

    You should watch secondhand lions. You can get some GREAT ideas....

    One of these days, I'm gonna get some signs that say, IF you are caught on my property twice without permission, you will be shot on sight. Can't wait to see them looks on their face when I follow through.....

    Sorry you've had some issues at your place coaltrain (and what a nice looking place it is). We were thrust into a dispute this past week with a neighbor. After living side by side for almost 10 years, I feel like I don't even know the guy. If these people want to act like they own more land than they actually do, then they need to buy places with more land. In my case, knowing my profession and contacts, it baffles me what I have been threatened with. This guy has been on me for years to sell some land to him, he doesn't have a snowball's chance now. I am hoping things quiet down for you (and me)!
