Can someone explain power lines use?
 
So I hear all about wheeling on power lines and all that. My question is how do you go about this, who do you go to for permission, what states, etc. Basically the run-down.

Some are owned by the power companies others are private and the power companies have an easment. Best to check before you go.

On wide open public land, use them. On private property, ask the land owner.

Lol, alright. I just now saw there were responses to my question. Well first off thanks. Secondly, so I should just ask the power lines companies for permission or what? alot of them are on mountains, and I assume someone owns the land but hard to tell who.

Where i live in central P.A. They are OFF LIMITS. The land owner owns the land and the power company owns the power lines and has a right of way. We have a large run of power lines across our land and they give us a hard time about what we do on it. Good luck with trying to find a Company that is going to let you wheel on there property. Most of the issue i think is they are afraid they are going to get sued and second is they have alot of money opening the property up and the lines and stuff.

Around here in NC, I can find out all I need to know about a specific piece of land through the county GIS system, search it up and see, maybe its an individual you can look up

Our power lines in florida cut through neighborhoods. Theres houses next to them, but not under them, there are trails and have been there for years. Theres always cops around. So i dont have a definite answer, but we do anyway.

Same here. I really haven't seen cops out there (knock on wood). We used to go out there till 3 in the morning and have bonfires. It's when people start dumping like crazy, they don't lie that.

I'm a fan of Leave No Trace. You might want bring trash bags with you and clean up after the douche bags so they won't ruin your fun in the future.

GoldenSahara00 10-04-2011 11:38 PM

bumping is against forum rules, did you know that?

haha anyways, I have no idea. I would ask the land owners. if you gota go through someones yard or private property to get there, then its a bad idea. otherwise call the company up and ask. the worst they can do is cuss you out.

obidya 10-07-2011 09:40 PM

I work for the phone company and needed to inspect some poles down this line, I brought all these guys in case I got stuck or needed help... the beer? well... want one?

TBrownSTL 10-07-2011 10:56 PM

Lol. Didn't bumpy know that lol. My bad bump. :hide: I'll try that.

GoldenSahara00 10-07-2011 10:57 PM

I dont mind at all, I just got in trouble(not really) for it once.

TBrownSTL 10-08-2011 04:31 PM
