Legal weed and lots of crime and homeless. Last time I was downtown it looked like Barter Town from Mad Max. I moved out of the Old North End to escape a lot of the crime, but I still had a meth queen break into my new house.
Seriously? That’s a damn shame. Downtown along Tejon was getting pretty nice and the Old North End was a great neighborhood? WTH? That’s terrible to hear.

They are trying to gentrify South Tejon. But it's rough. Tent cities etc.

I agree with both sides. We used to be ground tent peeps, but got sick of sleeping on an angle, on rocks. The time to setup decreased with the RTT, and we sleep WAY better and much warmer in the mountains. and no more inflatable mattresses. :) We deal with the issue of being able to leave camp by having an RTT trailer. So we hit camp, detach and level, and deploy the tent. It stays there until we break camp, and we can take our JT on day trips. It’s not like having a full camper trailer, so tows easily and stores easily. Not for everyone, but we love it.

Man that Is a shame we were in that area some years back and thought man this is wonderful. A friend of mine was living somewhere around Colorado Springs but moved. He said that the Cali crowd drove up the prices on everything and the area just wasn't the same anymore.

You know who mounts a tent on a gladiator way up above the roof line? Dopes, that's who.

I like mine because it's light, folds out like a pop tent, if I'm stopped I'm stopped for the night and I'm continuing on my journey the next day, I don't have to sleep on the ground like a peasant, a mattress is built in, bugs and scary mice can't get me.

The small Yakima skyrise is 92lbs or something like that. I don't even notice it on the rack. Because I am big masculine man and not a 12 year old girl I can lift it off by myself and let it sit in the corner of the garage the 356 days a year I'm not using it.
