Michigan Out of Doors T.V. #1614
Jimmy really focused on why the camps have to be removed and the Forest Service’s reasoning. And how leaseholders plan to remove or destroy their camps. This is of urgent importance right now. Time is ticking fast. January 1, 2017 will be here before we know it. That was really stressed in the 14 minute segment of Michigan Out of Doors.
For those who haven’t seen the 110 minute film, the majority of it focuses on what “goin’ to camp” is like and the camp dweller’s memories and traditions. The film circles back often to the fact that these idyllic camps have to be removed; either tore down, hauled out of the woods or burned to the ground. And why the USFS won’t renew the leases or grandfather the camps under special use permits.
Thank you Jimmy Gretzinger and the Michigan Out of Doors team for putting together a solid segment about the film and the cause. Since the show airs throughout Michigan and parts of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois it really spread the word. And that’s what we need. Maybe someone who knows someway to convince the U.S.F.S. to change the policy will see it.
I know it spread the word because the petition got almost 200 more signatures since Thursday. I love reading all the comment people have written in support of these camps. These people understand. The government does not.
I just checked my email and found 2 more DVD orders. Back to the dining room!
