Good news! The National Forest Service has nearly signed off on allowing the #yarnbomb. Just 1 last hurdle which should NOT be a problem but cant be cleared until next week. Since I am taking on the liability personally, I am working to acquire proper insurance coverage. This is not an off the shelf kind of policy though, so it will take a few days to sort out.
Thank you to everyone who has offered to stand watch over the yarnbomb! Stay tuned for dates and I'm still looking for additional volunteers. It's the weekday work hours that are most needed.
For those who have asked why Im worried about getting permission. The simple answer is because Im not doing anything wrong, so I shouldnt have to sneak around like some kind of criminal. I want to publicize it so that I can get as many people as possible to Go Outside and Play!
I was the little guy as a kid and got bullied a lot. I dont take kindly to it now that Im a grown man. If they (Los Padre Forest Watch) want to shut me down, they should be prepared for a fight.
FYI: They are a non-profit group, not to be mistaken for the National Forest Svc. The NFS has been incredibly professional and supportive. I appreciate their predicament and the job they do.
