SLUGS to people boot packing (walking) on skin tracks and cross country trails at Whitewater and around Nelson. Us backcountry enthusiasts create skin tracks and they are for skinning. Make your own boot pack track.
SLUGS to the people who allow their dogs to run free at night. My yard in Rosemont looks like a freeway. Please have some consideration for others who don’t have dogs.
SLUGS to the people who bring their dogs to Kokanee Park and do not clean up after them. Just because it is winter, you still need to clean up the mess. There are doggie bags and a garbage can on the boat ramp side of the beach, plus other garbage cans throughout the park. Please keep the park clean so it is not so disgusting in the spring.
SLUGS to dog owners who let their dogs bark for 20 minutes or more to be let in from the cold, several times each day. Hard on the dog and very unpleasant for your neighbours. Learn to be considerate to your dog and become a good neighbour.
HUGS to my friend from before we were born that continues to be a good friend today that helped us greatly with our ongoing snow removal campaign.
SLUGS to all those downtown shoppers and/or employees who are using the Nelson District Aquatic Centre for their personal parking. After circling around the lot several times waiting for someone to open up a parking spot so I could attend a fitness class, I finally gave up and went for a walk instead.
