Terry - looks good. Chalk up one sale, as soon as "she who must be obeyed" returns with the card!

Your front page has some info that raises curiosity about the way things are done over there.

Winston is still a thriving community, and in the mountains behind it are the remains of the East Pacific mining complex. Unfortunately it is on a Wildlife Reserve and there are "No trespassing" signs.

Are all Wildlife Reserves in America "no trespassing"?
I ask because I've located a LOT of these reserves and that is bad news if you aren't able to access them.
If approached nicely, are Rangers likely to "conduct" someone into a reserve?

The answer Gravelrash is no, not all.
Some wildlife areas are totally restricted for several years to allow wildlife both animals and plants to recover, others are restricted from vehicle traffic during animal mating season or for other reasons as determined by the Dept. Some areas have side trails blocked off while main trails are still open.
