right to roam

Here’s another one from the Patagonia company.

Good stuff.

This one is about the “right to roam”….in this case, it’s the Scottish understanding that private lands should be accessible to travelers and adventurous souls.


We don’t act like that around here.

I even have a “no trespassing” sign on the property we own down the street.

I don’t want to share….but, then again, the folks who want to share around here don’t always take such good care of other people’s property.

Maybe if the expectation was different on both sides….that care had to be taken to continue to have the right to enjoy access…..wellllllll…..things might be kind of nice.

A “right to roam” would be a good thing to be able to enjoy.

I’d say, “HOWDY, NEIGHBOR!!” if I dropped down onto the property on the other side of the fence.

It would be nice not to get shot….for sure.

Here’s the definition of “right to roam”…..from Wikipedia:

The freedom to roam, or “everyman’s right”, is the general public’s right to access certain public or privately owned land, lakes, and rivers for recreation and exercise. The right is sometimes called the right of public access to the wilderness or the “right to roam“.
