A Strange Encounter | High Sierra Topix  

A Strange Encounter

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Chiming in a bit late on this one, but I do hope you continue to post George. You provide a view others dont have and I, as one of many, appreciate your posts on this site. Alot of us (myself included) rant off the cuff about various issues, and you have a way of relating all of the facts in the dicussion to the reality of trying to implement such ideas/issues on such a large scale with so many different stake holders. I know I am one of many that appreciate your views.

I do like your new tag line :unibrow: and thanks Freestone for asking what POTUS meant!!

I agree that I value George's input. We may not always get along on some subjects but there are few with the amount of experience in the Sierra and knowing how these agencies operate as George.

I don't think the higher ups worrying what you say has anything to do with being big brother but it's just the tip toe mentality that these agencies have to do to keep people happy.

Hmm.. Well, I suppose stalking can be a form of flattery... :p
Maybe I should edit the terms and conditions of this site to include a statement like this:

I like that -- we could call it the Big Brother is Watching exception... .
