I find it funny that Obama used the phrase "completely unnecessary damage" vis a vis the shutdown, since that seems to have been his staff's explicit marching orders: Inflict completely unnecessary damage. It was pretty clear there was never justification for the Administration to close our privately-funded parks. Over the last week, case after case in court overturned similar orders in the NPS and USFS. I just wish our TRO request had come to court a bit sooner so we could have had the precedent in hand.
Anyway, we are opening today, and readers will be spared more posts on our situation. I know some of our customers are reading this site for updates. The updated status of all our Forest Service campgrounds and parks and when they are opening is here.
