This Must Have Been a Lovely Evening

Boise County Sheriff's Department busted dozens of Boise teens getting drunk and using drugs deep in the forest.  They must have been having a really great time.  From the May 19, 2014 Idaho Statesman:
Several fires were burning at the party site late Saturday, and some trees had been knocked over, according to the news release. Boise County Sheriff and Boise National Forest officers who went to the party said that bottles, cans, piles of vomit and other kinds of trash were strewn about. [emphasis added]
Loads of fun, I'm sure.  A few of the teenagers had to be taken to hospitals.  Getting piles of vomit loaded in this particular area is a really bad idea.  Quoting Boise County Sheriff Roeber:
“It’s not like you are five minutes away from medical treatment when you are up in the mountains,” Roeber said. “It can take hours to get to emergency medical care - and the parties just seem to get farther and farther in.”
The article points out the risks involved with trying to drive away from this event on Bogus Basin Road -- a mildly hazardous road when you are completely sober.

why does that remind me of a song I heard on the country-music station?

(Except in the song, they don't mention vomit, litter, and potential medical problems...)

It's hazardous, but culturally expected, for some High School students to sneak away from home and party with intoxicants.

Perhaps the Sheriff and Judge should figure out a way to bring the teens back out there, sober, and have them do garbage-pick-up duty.
