Re: RC: Sierra Club
I have to agree with Greg. I had many problems with these radical - no
use best use - groups in PA when I was working with the PA Forest to
develop multi use trails. The PA DER top dog was a Sierra club VP .. a
Gov appointed director whos ONLY agenda in office was to shut ALL
users out of the PA forests .. I bet he is still there and is behind
the Game Land problems ..
I lined up with the OFF Roaders - the BLUE RIBBON COLLATION .. NOW
THEY do fix things. Where they go we go .. AND they ALL DO NOT want
run ramrod over the land .. there are radicals in all groups.
I lost votes in the BOD (AERC) run because of this position.
The Eco-wacks and greenies are well in-trenched at the working level
due the prev government GORE policy -- read his book -
no use best use
no SUV no 4x4 trucks - no big trucks for rec use no ATV - no MC-dirt
bikes no mtn bikes - no snowmobiles
.. no nothing .. move into the city - NOT
Rode yesterday today and will go on a LONG one tomorrow .. and all
hit the delete key - turn off the tv - tackup and RIDE
