I'm there with you. I go hiking all the time in the hollywood hills. I grew up off mulholland and used to walk every deer trail along the side of
those hills since I was 12 years old. Kids do the same thing here. Everywhere i go I see bottles smashed everywhere. I know what their doing.
don't even care as long as they don't screw up the environment. Fine do it in the bushes, great, it's fun I'm sure. fine get drunk or high while
enjoying the view. just don't leave your detrius everywhere. I have no problem if man wants to trash the stuff we've already ruined. But on the
side of the hills or out in the wilderness. Not Cool.
When I was a teenager my friends and I (most of whome are now in recon marine units) used to climb all over the hollywood hills at night. we always
cleaned up after ourselves. we'd climb all the way up to the griffith observatory and stalk the guards for fun and for practice. Not one of the
security gaurds ever knew that 4-6 men were watching their everymove from the shadows of the tree line only 45 feet away. stalkingthem for up to an
hour before the idea of going back to the crib and drinking a beer seemed more interesting. this skill came in handy when we'd come across the few
kids "partying" up in the hills. we'd mess with them all night. scare em. jack stuff from their camp like all their beer and write a note saying
thanks for the beer. throw rocks in the brush next to them to make them think coyotes were around. their disrespect really irked us.
Everynow and then I'll see some kids partying up on mullholland. Since mullholland is technically city park land it's loitering to be there past
dusk. the park rangers hate these types so I always give them ashout out when I see them. they patrol mulholland for a few hours at night just to
find these types. these kids accidently create multi acre brush fires, piss off the residents and race their cars, usually while drunk and hit people
parked on the side of the road making out when their cars loose it. Now it's against the law to go up there and park at night because of them.
hence the park designation and the park ranger patrols. So I call them and give them handy tips like. yep 4-8 kids drinking on the side of runyion
canyon. their cars are parked just off mulholland an skyline drive. black altima, white civic. 3 guys 4 girls. have a great night.
the park rangers thank me and then usually go off on the hunt. Don't know the park rangers numbers to call but I can always find them around usually
a little down the road.
