dremd - that is a crazy story! (and a fair warning to the rest of us) What state do you live in?

I live on the border of Maine and New Hampshire and have called both states home at different times. I tend to follow the "Live Free Or Die" motto of NH but to be clear I was saying that it will be hard to wait till November, but I can wait, don't need to go to jail for cheap plastic.

I'll go talk to the neighbor that has 2 giant signs zip tied to his fence. I figure those signs are junk the day after the election and I'm just doing my part to clean up the trash like a good steward of the environment. I bet the guy will be psyched I'm cleaning it up for him.

it is going to take a lot of coroplast to cover the entire underside of the A4 wagon.

Louisiana
Lafayette Parish (somewhat similar to county in the rest of the nation)

Our Laws are significantly differant than other states. As stated above based on Napoleonic code rather than British. Drives Lawyers mad when crossing state lines.

First thing that comes to mind is the 7 year fence law, if you have a fence around property (or claim to) the property becomes yours; a lot like a common law marriage. My family got screwed by that one when I was young.


I just had a good idea; run by the local campaign office on November 3 and volunteer to remove some large signs.

We have something similar here, called the acquisitive prescription, it's 15 years for immovable property. If you live peaceably on a on a property for 15 years, so basically no one ever told you to move out, you can claim rights to it in court.

I got my coroplast the day after the election. I'm using it for an upper grill block. The lower grill I'm going to use Lexan.
