I hate them. Nobody want to tell you ahead of time you need a code or called the guard and let them know you are coming. I particularly hate the communities that ask for ID and copy or record it in some fashion.
This morning was the worst, I show up, and wait with my crew for five minuets to see the happy guard. He said we are not on the list, and not going in until we are put on the list or drive to the next community, fill-out some paper work and get a pass. Then we can come back and go through. I am tired of jumping through hoops when I have permission to enter the property and have been background checked numerous times. I feel sorry for the poor sap that lets my ID information fall into the wrong hands.
How do you all handle the gate gestapos? I am thinking a yelp siren or bully bar.
Evertime that happens to me I think yep I never googled this place just punched it in and drive. What is bad too is when there is a gate but no guard. You just wait hoping somebody will show up and open it.
