9:33 p.m. -- So it's okay for truckers to camp in city limits (with their motors running)? Sounds fair to me.

10:20 p.m. -- Drunk, spoiled, entitled kid... Indulgent, enabling mother... I had a roommate living this scenario, once, God rest his soul. We'll see this kid in the future, in the Jail Report or the Death Notices. Maybe if the cops arrested the brat, instead of coddling him, that would be a step in the right direction. As it is, this is wong, on so many levels... some kids never grow up.

So we are to equate weary truckers working a job with ski bums?

And the trucker was made to move...

What this town really needs is a true truck stop. There is no place between Silverthorne and Rifle for a trucker to stop and rest and shower and eat etc. As soon as I have a million dollars I intend to open one.

But is it OK for anyone else to sleep in their vehicle at Stockbridge? And for that matter, can a fatigued driver nap in City limits, or must they pull over out of town? Wal Marts around the country encourage overnight parking by RVs. Would they be told to move along in this town? Is there anywhere in this town an ordinary citizen can sleep in their vehicle?

We encourage RVs to park over at Howelsen, many sleep in them there especially when the RV parks are full. Are we allowing an illegal activity for those who own hundred thousand dollar rigs but not for the poor carpenter in his plywood truck cap? The winter of 77-78 when I ski bummed at Killington I started out in such a modest abode. By the second night I was parked on the jobsite where I had been hired, after a couple of paychecks I got a house rental.

Lets cut them some slack. They are here to contribute in their modest way to the ideal we all support. And as Harvey pointed out in the parallel thread, some go on to become outstanding citizens of this community.

Working in Central Park Plaza in the early am, I see people spending the night quite often. Especially during hunting season. I've also seen top of the line 40 foot RVs with there pop-outs deployed and welcome mats out.
