Went out to Lockwood earlier today with plans to run Bronco Canyon and El Chupacabra :skull . Started unloading the buggy when two guys drove up and told me that I was on private property and all roads in that area were property of Storey county and not open for public use. I asked the guy since when has public access been not allowed in the area. His answer was that public access has never been allowed in that area and referred me to a sign posted down the road which clearly states that a portion of that area is private property and vehicle travel is restricted to main roads only. The sign does not say that vehicle travel is forbidden through the property. These guys that I encountered were posting no trespassing signs all over the place near the TRW gate and the quarry. Funny thing is that none of their posted signs looked very official or had any Storey County insignias or notation on them. Just a simple no trespassing sign from the hardware store with "Storey County property" written by hand with a marker pen. These guys didn't look official either nor did their vehicle. They didn't identify who they were with (agency) either. We decided to just leave and went and ran Twista instead. The whole deal this guy was spewing sounded like:bs: to me. Anybody ran into this situation out there before? Is that area really closed to public access like these guys are claiming?
