I’d toss some bucks your (CDTC) way if I thought it would go better than the CDTA mess went, but it looks to me like this new group is the same people under a different name.  Please educate me.

>> CDTC has been speaking with Sam's family about many things to help honor Sam, but all of them require involvement of the BLM who actually mange the lands the Trail resides on.    Please be patient and as we work with Sam's family, the BLM, and the Trail Community, we will find a wonderful way to recognize Sam, and not create any incidents with unintended consequences.  Crazy Cook got its name by the piece of concrete that has been at the intersection of the access road and the border for quite some time. Based on how long its been there, it's now somewhat historical.

I don't want the Native Americans, the BP, the illegals, the BLM, the Federales or the Mennonites across the fence - to get upset with the CDT. Mini Mart

>> “49, 3 kids, all of whom climb. in fact we're going sunday. I'm going to die and so are you. so are my kids. in the perfect world I'll die before they do, but there aren't any guarantees. so I prepare them for life the best way I know how, doing the things that prepared me to massage my mother’s feet and tell her not to be scared, that it was her time to go. and that made it possible to kiss my dad one last time and tell him I loved him, and walk away. if you have depth to your soul and insights into life's lessons and you didn't get them from risk  then congratulations but I can't relate. climbing can be deltoids or it can be zen; it can be runout or short safe falls; it can be skies filled with lightning or crisp air ahead of mare's tails. It is never standing in a grocery line.”
