Looks like a government shut down could affect the Rendezvous. When the political bullshit in Washington starts to affect the Ozark Rendezvous they have gone too far.
I saw this on the NBC News web site this morning:
ďAll national parks would likely be closed, as would the Smithsonian museums, including the National Zoo in Washington. Visitors using overnight campgrounds or other park facilities would be given 48 hours to make alternate arrangements and leave the park. Among the visitor centers that would be closed: the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York, Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Alcatraz Island near San Francisco and the Washington Monument.Ē
If this happens I guess we could call the press (is there any around there?) and get coverage of the Park Service kicking us out of Pulltite. But if there is a government shut down where will the Rangers come from to kick us out?
I guess we could move to Akers, but I donít know about toilet/outhouse facilities.
Maybe we should just look for a giant sandbar and camp there? If they close the river how would they enforce it without rangers. Or will it only be closed to non-locals?
Could be the most interesting Fall Ozark Rendezvous yet. Time to practice our civil disobedience procedures from the 60's.
ďDonít Tread on the Ozark Rendezvous.Ē
