The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Jordan K…
Jordan K.: Parked my truck + horse trailer in front of my own house for a few minutes to use the bathroom before a trip up north to pick up hay. Had this on my truck immediately. I hate California government and the piece of shit neighbors that called me in. Montana here I come.

E’naaniibwit M.: We’re eventually going to see you on a episode of Edge of Alaska lol
Ryan P.: Wow… and to think that these people who called on you probably live on the land that YOUR family sold them… ungrateful bastards.
Daniel R.: Pieces of shit
Kris K.: Wow, that’s really stupid
Jordan K.: Next time I’m just going to pull the entire rig up on my front lawn.
Rayn: My husband and I were forced out of NJ with our RV because of these same exact sort of peace-molesting “ordinances.” No victim, no crime!
Jordan K.: I just called the contact name and number. Greg was confrontational with me at first. He said I wouldn’t be able to park my trailer on the street at all. Then later in the conversation he admitted he guessed my trailer was about 18′ long. I then asked him why, if it wasn’t over 25′, wouldn’t I be able to park it in the street. He then mentioned the widths and heights, which I assured him it wasn’t over. After that he admitted I would be allowed to park it in the street as long as I followed all the guidelines on this paper. Even if it was over 80″ I could still park the trailer on the street at all times between 4pm and 7:30am 🙂Sometimes telling somebody what they can’t do isn’t any better then having them find out what they CAN do. My neighbors are gonna get a whole lotta trailer love in the coming months.
Jordan K.: I asked him if I could pull it up on my front lawn… nope – can’t put anything on a non paved surface.
Jordan K.: So then I asked him if I could park it in the driveway disconnected next to my truck everything on pavement. I can do that. I can also park between the right hours like I mentioned before. Either way, these neighbors are asshats.
Nellie K.: So sorry that happened to you!
Jordan K.: It’s ok… I’m dealing with it. It’s just a bad feeling when you know one of your neighbors has it in for you.
