Oh...that scofflaw camper!! In light of this, I must correct your previous statement that I reported this camper to Mike Castro. I did not, although I have had conversations both with and about this person to various people. This camper spent the summer in the DCHS area, telling everyone that he would soon be returning to Alaska. At first he said at the end of June, then July, and finally August. In September he was still around, so he definitely did not go home early. I am not aware of how often he may have camped illegally in the area of the springs, but do recall a time when he asked for a ride to an area where he could camp legally, citing a fear of being caught by the ranger. He did not mention Mike Castro. We gave him the ride.

It seems that his own overstay beyond the limits of his funds may have been the cause of his needing to wire home for money. Where would his return trip funds have come from if his visit had extended longer? He was a likeable person, but he definitely pushed the limits of tolerance by letting it be known that he was essentially living at the springs. He did not access through Bowen Ranch, but I have heard rumor that he sometimes "snuck" through the ranch while getting rides to town for supplies.

I do not know anything about Mr. Castro confronting him, but hope that he did finally arrive home safely and without losing the chance for some seasonal fishing. If he returns in the future, I hope that he will have the forsight to arrange for a legal visit that does not include camping at the springs, and to leave before he runs out of money.
