How often do you hear of anyone saying you can only smoke inside of buildings?
The Adams Pack Station (up in them thar San Gabriel Mountains) has posted a notice reading:
Effective August 1, a forest order will be issued that will state that no wood or charcoal fires will be allowed anywhere on the forest, and smoking will be allowed only in buildings or vehicles.
Located about 30 minutes from downtown L.A. in the Angeles Crest National Forest, Adams Pack Station is as close as you can get to being east of the Mississippi while remaining West of Las Vegas. Not only is it a general store for campers, day hikers, and cabin dwellers, but the Pack Station also rents donkeys to carry your gear out to any one of a handful of campsites to choose from. (I wrote about the Adams Pack Station last year as well).
But no – you can’t ride the donkey, and no – they don’t dispense cigarettes out of their butts. (Unless you’re indoors, maybe.)
