[RC] Poop Patrol - GarnerT

My friends & I ran into the "poop patrol" at a local campground.  We usually
stop at this restroom near Lake Ming & the Kern River.  We stop after riding
about 15 miles on our training loop.  The bathroom is located right next to
a parking lot, it has a pine tree and some grass.  We are there about 10
minutes max, taking turns using the facilities & holding our horses.  A
ranger stopped & told us we couldn't stand there, we had to go to the dirt
area (no shade, no grass).  When asked why, he said people might not like
the horse poop.  My reply was "As opposed to all the dirty diapers & dog
poop lying all over the ground."  He didn't think it was funny.  We told him
okay, & then just stood there.  He finally left, we didn't leave, & we still
stop there.  Talk about ridiculous!  BYW, our horses, after 15 miles, have
never pooped there, but if they do, we'll pick it up!  The campground is
dirty with the above mentioned items, but no horse poop!
