Question by Eddie Cacciatore, Private Eye: Was it wrong to trespass into a closed amusement park with the kids?
I was driving with the family, including my kid and her little friend, out in the middle of Nowhere, NY, and we approached a hokey amusement park I remembered fondly as a kid. But it had closed at 4:30 p.m. and it was about 5:30. The parking lot was empty. It was a Wally World moment.
I HAD to see if a certain attraction in the park were still there, so used my PI skills to jimmy open and exit and slipped in. The kids wanted to follow. My wife was chicken and stayed in the car.
So we went through the park for about 20 minutes, took a bunch of pics and got out. Some maintenance guy in there at one point came out to yell at the kids, but I then appeared and told him everything was OK. So he went back to his bong or whatever.
After, the kids said they were totally thrilled by the trespass, because it felt “bad.” Now I’m unsure if I did the right thing. I’m used to breaking rules, but these are good kids (my daughter goes to Catholic school). Could I have corrupted them, or was it good to instill some adventure in them?
(We also crosses a rocky mountain stream earlier that day. Another adventure. My wife just watches.)
The exit door was actually easy to open. Not sure if it would qualify as “breaking” and entering.
Answer by T P
Well, I can’t say that trespassing was ok, but no, I don’t believe you’ve corrupted the kids, provided you tell them that they’re never allowed to do that again.

Question by : Beer keg in the mountains…?
I will soon be embarking on an adventure with my friends to the great rocky mountains. We went last year and learned the hard way just how expensive it is to buy beer in dillon. My question is “can i purchase a keg in say, nebraska, and then take it up the mountain with me? or will it explode like a bag of potato chips, killing all of us in our pursuit of a (cheap) cold brew?”
