I agree with everyone on both sides. When I lived in Ketchikan before they shut down Whipple, it was the place to go, but we always had someone ask us if we had been in the pits where the blasting agents are. Of course we never went in there but other kids had because of hills and what not.

If there was a riding park like they have down here they would go. There have been accidents down here but they made a new rule that you must have a flag on your ATVs to ride in the park so that you are always visible or else you did not ride. I know it takes money and resources to do a thing like this but it would be good. With the bowling alley shut down there isn't much for the kids to do but go raise hell.
