I understand that Colin was under a lot of stress that day, and pumping adrenaline can surely cloud the memory. I don't even know where to begin with the inaccuracies of his description of those two days. Instead, however, of playing the "He Said, She Said" game, I will choose to feel compassion for him and what he must have gone through to look back with such a distorted perception. If Colin and his elitist skiing bro's don't want a "nightmare Search and Rescue scene [which he was] was trying to avoid," (which was a goulish seven SAR volunteers and three officers), tell them not to call 911.
Well put, Nate. I also appreciate young people taking an interest in public lands management. This is our future as well as our children's and their children's that we are preserving and stewarding. The upcoming land managers of your generation are bright and innovative, that is why it is easy for you see that the FJRA while not perfect (because what piece of legislation ever is?) is a good bill based on collaboration that does a great service to our people and public lands.
Well put Emma. This brings up a good point, that extremists always seem to use the weapon of fear to dismantle the truth. I appreciate your level-headed, factual, and calm rebuttal to these false claims.
