In many of the 19th and early 20th century historic buildings, in National Parks, you’ll see the graffiti like “Bob was here.” Bob wanted future visitors to know he was at the cabins and so did a host of his friends who also left their mark. Graffiti is a problem in public lands. In Great Smoky Mountains National Park the National Park Service has posted signs educating visitors about Bob and why defacing historical and park places is destructive and unlawful. Great Smoky Mountains National Park visitors caught writing their names on park objects, including historical buildings, can be fined. Its not enough for Bad Bob to deface 100 year old buildings but also leaves his mark on rocks and trees for the enjoyment of all.
Not only does Bob leave his graffiti for all to see but leaves his garbage as well. They are plenty on waste disposals through out the National Parks and heavy fines can be levied for this as well. Don’t be a “Bad Bob” respect that, that has been set aside and maintained for all and their future generations.
Don’t know where the park service come up with Bob probably because Bad Bob kinda sings and is easy to remember..The fine can be up to $5000 and 6 months in prison..that’d help ya remember too.
