Avoiding Over-Crowding in Tourist Areas

I was almost personally insulted to only have one camper at my campground last night. Was the world trying to say that we weren't offering a desirable product? Maybe I should have stopped in at his campsite and turned on the charm offensive.

No wonder we don't get many visitors: the scenery is too ugly!
But when I looked at it rationally and laid out the pro's and con's, things stacked up pretty well at this location. But most people don't think like that, apparently. They want to go to places that are popular with everybody else. It is strange that many people have so little confidence in the carefulness of their own thoughts.

An unpopular location or season offers a huge payoff to the visitor in Colorado. The over-crowding in this state is becoming discouraging. So it is very hopeful to realize that you can escape the crowds if you stop defining beauty the way that everybody else does.

All a person has to do is recognize the standard, bar-coded postcards that attract the masses, and then steer away from such places, at least at certain times of the year. Of course, that is re-defining beauty in a purely negative way. What we really need to do is visualize the unpopular places in an exciting way.

Maybe the next Democratic president will declare this a national monument and we'll get 2.6 million new visitors the first year. Gee, that'd be great!

    They want to go to places that are popular with everybody else.

    This is evidenced by the cliche "I'm going to add that place to my bucket list" when you read Comments on RVer blogs.

    1. The English professor on staff here wants you to say 'evinced' rather than 'evidences.' (Grin)

      Indeed, the 'bucket list' shows that people are just looking for bar-codes.

  2. Why would we want Government,in a disguise of mommy with a democrat a disguise of daddy as a republican, to do anything?
    Lets look at this logically and rationally with out any induced regressive child emotions in the way.
    The only way Government gets individuals to comply is through the threat of violent force.
    Would any good decent human being who understands right from wrong ever threaten or use violent force to get an individual to do what they want?
    No!
    Government is an outdated belief system that no longer serves us.
    If you don't like crowds, then go somewhere else.

  3. I would further add that the Government is the Modern Day Master and the tax payer is the Modern Day Slave.

    From Blacks Law Dictionary

    MASTER AND SERVANT

    The master typically has total authority over the servant in directing the manner, place, and time of services in this type of relationship.

    What is SLAVE?
    A person who is wholly subject to the will of another; one who has no freedom of action, but whose person and services are wholly under the control of another. Webster. One who Is under the power of a master, and who belongs to him ; so that the master may sell and dispose of his person, of his industry, and of his labor, without his being able to do anything, have anything, or acquire anything, but what must belong to his master. Civ. Code La. art. 35.
    Law Dictionary: What is SLAVE? definition of SLAVE (Black's Law Dictionary)

    So you see, the Federal Government is the Taxpayers Master.
    We are engaging in Slavery still.
    Suffering is a condition created by wrong choice. It is really simple.
