Good Fences #9

Many permanent residents in the campground chain and padlock their golf carts when they aren't here. Most of us have small modulars or park model trailers and leave the carts right in the yard. Some use a cable and lock, and almost everyone locks them. Not many have really large homes or garages. 

This owner has the only one that is protected in this way.

 Maybe this is why. They might have seen what could happen if it wasn't locked in! I have personally seen this sight several times in the past 15 years; usually during "Spring break." One was in the ocean!

  3. I know this is about the fence but I like the golf cart shot. The determined golfer who insisted on playing the ball where it lay. Thanks for visiting my First Fence.

  4. I think it's sad that people have to go to those extremes, but that is a good way to keep your property safe. You know, when I was a teenager, there were a million ways I entertained myself without destroying property that belonged to someone else.

  5. That's one reason I don't care to see Spring Break roll 'round each year!! If they only realized that someday this is gonna happen to them. And they'll be a bit ticked off.

  6. I hate having to lock things...for 20 years I never locked anything at any time. The past 6 or 7 years, everything is locked when not in use.

  10. Nice gate to lock up your carts, etc. I am guessing that the cart in the drink did not belong to that large home. It made me laugh but I am sure the one who drove it in there is not laughing.

  11. Yeah you could see why you might want a locked gate if that happens a lot.
