Off roading with their families on a mountain top is way better that sitting on the couch, being in a gang, etc.. It teaches the younger ones to respect the outdoors, work on machines, not litter, help each other, to drive, etc.. Yes, you can have a particliar public relations outfit put some pictures of some tire tracks and such on here and portray it as some devious form of recreation. But there is no way it is EVER going to take 9 million dollars to build that road up Aetna. However, until Stein and the billion dollar company of York Capital meets the 9 million dollar thresh hold, they will not have to pay the vast majority of any taxes. That is what this is about. You never heard ANY stories about Aetna until the billion dollar York Capital and Stein were ready to start ripping up the top of a beautiful, unspoiled mountain, using YOUR tax money to do so. It's not about off road recreation, it is about Black Creek wanting to change the name of a mountain and destroy a whole wild life area. The off road community have no desire to destroy the whole mountain top. I am 52 years old and the mountain has looked the way it does now since I started going there 42 years ago. This is a public relations issue with Black Creek wanting to use the TWRA to be their thugs and run everyone off of the mountain so they can do destroy it with their bulldozers and rip off the tax payers with their TIF deal. Trust me on this. More to come.
