Thanks for the info, very helpful. I do have a question. What is the RRGCC stance on parking for non RRGCC land, motherlode, choco, bears den, as this seems to be the biggest issue.

Parking on land we don't own or don't have a agreement with the land holders in place allowing us to park, tends to piss off the locals.
Upsetting the folks who's backyard we play in is never a great idea. That being said parking is allowed only is designated areas on the PMRP. parking anywhere else without land owner permission could jeopardize future access and cause unwanted issues with our neighbors.

Please be patient with us, we are working on improving the situation in the southern region. If you want to help please feel free to contact me. I can always use another pair of hands or pair of eyes.

Real question is... Why is access to The Gallery your number 1 priority?! (Just curious...)

The parking lot on TOP of the first Motherlode hill, before you ever go down, hasn't been mentioned so far. That is still an option, right?

The roads here are horrible. Basically you are going to die if you try to drive anywhere. The climbing here is pretty horrible too. Just stay home and watch TV; not worth it.

Did anyone mention yet that there are thieves, vandals, and drug dealers everywhere? Way worse than Mexico IMO... not kidding.

Meh.... live & learn. Moral of the story: comprehensive insurance is worth the extra $5 a month if you're gonna be spending much time in the southern region.

Oh, and to all the fairweather visitors not "in the know" this spring: do NOT leave ANYTHING valuable in your car while parked anywhere in the southern region!! Lee County is a largely poverty-stricken area and all your pretty iCrap is worth a lot to some people.

It was certainly implied to be of at least top priority (maybe not 1st priority) when the OP said in the post that started this thread, "how are the conditions of the gravel road for access to the Gallery?"

I'm just curious what she's so psyched on at the Gallery?! Maybe it's something I haven't done that I need to go check out (if it's within my abilities).

You are welcome to voice your concerns about road maintenance or break-ins at the RRGCC meeting being held this Saturday, March 9th at the Pine Crest Camp Lodge in Beattyville at 9am. The RRGCC's draft budget currently has $10,000 for property maintenance. If you plan on attending the meeting please RSVP via the Coalition's Facebook page or by e-mailing [email protected] if you haven't already.

And if you can't make it and have grievances let me know. Most people think I'm an asshole anyway so I will be the asshole voice of the people.
