Received the following today. Seems we may have discussed this
already, but it's a subject that probably bears repeating.

>Dear Continental Divide Trail Users,
>We received this e-mail message from a land owner on the Continental Divide.
>Please be sure to respect the wishes and rights of all land owners along the
>Divide Trail per the following message:
>"Our ranch lies directly on the CDT, 6 and one half miles south of Pie Town,
>NM. Please allow us to inform you of the following incidents: Today we
>returned home, after being absent for two days and found the following note
>on our living room table: "Hi, Sorry to tresspass, just needed some water
>really bad. Hope you don't mind. (Tried knocking, no one was home). Thank
>you. Glen E (CDT Hiker) Well, let me tell you, WE DO MIND. For years we
>have supported CDT hikers, but this season started out bad and seems to
>continue this way. A few weeks ago, two men who claimed to be from your
>association met, by coincidence, at the ranch entrance with the ranch
>foreman. They explained that they were mapping the water sources for the
>CDT. The foreman stated that the owner (that's me) was absent and that they
>had to come by later since they wanted to discuss permission of getting
>water, etc. - Nobody stopped by after that , but my friend who owns the cafe
>in Pie Town told me that two men had stopped by and discussed the ranch
>"which has a sign hanging on the pipe gate saying horses are dangerous" The
>sign these two ignorant individuals read has to be posted by NM law for the
>protection of any equine operation, and quotes the NM Equine Liability Law.
>Stupid comments and rude invasion of a home is what will make your
>association unpopular. There is a plainly visible windmill with a livestock
>tank within a few hundred feet from the road, additionally there is a
>frostfree faucet right next to the house-the water is all one and the same.
>These two water sources should be sufficient without hikers having to enter a
>private home. As I stated above, we have reminded your members that hiking
>the CDT does not give them the privilege to trespass into private homes, and
>you should also instruct your staff as to State Laws. It is rude and
>ignorant people who force us to change our attitude which has been nothing
>but hospitable to hikers in the past. I am looking forward to hearing from
>you. Thank You."
>PLEASE NOTE THAT WE AT CDTA TALKED TO THIS LANDOWNER AND TOLD THEM THAT THE
>TWO INDIVIDUALS THAT PURPORTED TO BE WITH OUR ORGANIZATION DO NOT IN ANY WAY
>REPRESENT OUR ORGANIZATION, THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRAIL ALLIANCE, AND WE
>HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR IDENTITY.
