Re: “Flip-Flopping on Waldo Lake

This Lake and area is a Paradise, beautiful water, (can see 50 ft down) great campsites and 3 campgrounds, awesome boat ramps, Fishing for Walleye and kokanee, wonderful hiking trails all surrounded by dozens of smaller lakes and ponds! Only there is no reason to go there. Friends of Waldo organization got involved and in 1996 they got the flush toilets removed, the boat motors off the lake, stopped the planting of fish in the water, the big fish ate the little fish and then the big fish starved and died. All in order to preserve this pristine lake holding the cleanest water in Oregon as it is the Head waters of the north fork of the Willamette river (a near toxic water down lower). So they have infact Killed the most awesome camping destination I have ever seen. All this beauty and fun just waiting for nobody to come because there is now no reason to go there. It reminded me of a post apocalyptic vacation destination, no one in site and no sound of anything, because legally you are restrained from enjoying yourself. We as a people should ban together and refuse to let just a few idiots control us and the outcome of such an important place. It is now preserved to the point there is no life in the lake, no algae, bugs, fish, crawdads, nothing. The lake is Dead. I believe we should round up all the friends of waldo and put them in the lake and preserve them as well! This is what happens when people are afraid to make waves, or speak up, and fight for what is right. Hundreds of people should show up one Saturday and launch there boats and start water skiing and tubing, house boats, ect. The only way to fight these people is by force and in numbers, Laxidazically hanging around waiting to be told to get out of the water and put your fishing poles away was the equivalent of walking up to the cliffs edge and jumping off. I don't know why I didn't even hear about this back then, but things like this should have drawn the attention of the news vans and huge crowds using those flush toilets so they couldn't be taken out. Its supposed to be We The People and not Us The Few! The Longer I live and the Less time I have left, The more compelled I feel to not care about (making waves) and do something to stand up and stop this kind of nonsense. When the greatest things we have turn into the last place we would want to go, we have Sercombe to the politicians and let the freak groups run ramped, therefore releasing any interest in the words, We The People. and I hang my head in shame.
