As California enters wildfire season, the state is scrambling to find sufficient firefighters amid the coronavirus outbreak that has depleted the ranks of inmates who usually handle some of the toughe...
This maybe true but they stopped inspections for hired equipment 3 monthes ago.And with new calfire rules maney contracters across the state have either failed to qualify or just didn't even bother to become eligable for calfire contracts this season.Tough one, when calfire spends 98million$ on brand new firehawk helicopters.If the average citizen understood a little more poloticts they'd see whats really a bout to happen.
Fire is 99% more deadlier then covid 19
Paul McCarthyIs it odd that when I read the word "GUV" I say it in your accent?
POPULAR SKUNK 'RAILBIKES' SOON TO BE NOT SO POPULAR MSP saw this posted to coast social media Thursday (Fort Bragg Current Events): "Anyone have any thoughts on the Skunk train jacking up their prices? I paid $40 with the local discount in June to do the rail bikes; $90 for out of towners. I went online today and it is $250/bike. Local discount only on the 8:30 am ride and that will still cost you $100. Holy guacamole, that’s a major price increase in less than a month. Really sticking it to those tourists I guess." Here are some comments to the post: ***"And from July 16th price it went up from $206.70 to $265.00 for the 21st trip. I think if a person is interested in doing the bikes they should call and ask about this." ***" I had planned to do a trip but not at that price." ***"That's too bad we were really wanting to try them. I just bought 6 tickets for the Willits train, 4 adults and 2 kids, and it was less than $250 for all of them." ***"Wow! I’ll check that off the “to do,” list!" ***"I was seriously shocked. I thought I was missing something on the site so I called the office and nope, that’s really the price." ... See MoreSee Less
W😡W! That’s terrible. We enjoyed the rail bikes several weeks ago when they had the local discount. I’m not sure we would have gone if we would have had to pay the regular price, which would have been around $90. I agree. Their price is now definitely in the “No way in Hell” category!
Too bad! We went maybe a month ago at the$40price per bike. When I booked it I asked how long this locals price would remain and I was told that was the locals year-round price. Sorry to see they’ve changed their minds. What is this GIF after my comment?
Ahhhhh supply and demand. Ain’t capitalism great? If no one bites at the $250 price tag then the price drops. Enough people bite, then good for Skunk Train for shooting the moon. The value, ultimately, is in the hands of the consumer. Not sure why everyone so up in arms about it.
That's too bad! Was going to do, now a big no!
I was surprised also, the price change made me think I was seeing it wrong. Hard to believe the price went up so much. I’ll wait till after Labor Day and see then what it will cost for locals
Local price hikes are gonna ruin us. If tourists can not afford that, They won’t do it. We sure can’t afford it. So we definitely won’t. Maybe they’ll have to close due to no business. 😏
We were going to go but won’t be at these prices.
Prices for our favorite motels have doubled their rates. Yikes.
The thing is ... the price increase ruins it for the locals who thought the Rail Rides would be fun for a day getaway with a friend. IF I was a tourist here, I wouldn't pay those ludicrous prices.
The locals will have to wait til the tourists go home and they need us again. I wanted to do this too. But beinging a tourist town your locals can not afford that.
It was already ridiculously overpriced. $80 for 3.5 miles and 90 minutes. Next time I’ll go fishing instead
That’s one way to keep tourists from bringing the Covid to the Coast. Price them away !
They're losing monies elsewhere so they figure they could make a killing with the rail bikes I guess. Pretty chicken💩 if you ask me...its all about the all mighty dollar anymore!😡
I guess not all local business need the money and don't want customers. Local or tourist. Sad
Well that's outrageous! And isn't it only half way????
Its always been this price online but they have been generous with local discounts.
One of the realities that we can find from face masks to groceries is that a whole lot of people from wholesalers to retailers are jacking up their prices - effectively profiting from the CoVid crisis at the expense of their customers.
This is just another example.
Well, my family will be skipping this. Even at a so called discount. I’d rather have groceries for the week or two.
So over $600 in tickets for my wife, 4 kids and I to drive over to fort Bragg from Ukiah for a day. So a grand after eating and fuel! Haha there isn’t anything in Mendocino county worth a grand for a few hours entertainment! No thanks!!!
effing trash holding up traffic... start them on the east side!!! entitled tourists.. entitled company...
My friend went to ride them, because she was out of Mendocino county the man said the price was higher.
Wow, I wanted to do this , but not at those prices!
I don’t have anything positive to say about the owner.. not surprised
THIS is how ya GO OUT OF BUSINESS! Ya get MORE charging LESS!
Nice machines, nice ride in the open air, but, you can price yourself out of business. Not going to make enough off those to fix the tunnel.
