    Look at Utah, they want to take the National Lands. They hate us. They just want to go camping in their desert
    Yeah, it's all about camping.

      don't you like to mine a little uranium whenever you camp?

    •  There is currently a big fight in Utah going on (0+ / 0-)

      regarding changing the status of all the lands surrounding Canyonland, Arches, out to the Lasalles, and south to places I haven't been. Some users want to make it roadless but mountain bike-able and raft-able and commercially adventure trip-able, but not drivable, even where it is currently drivable. People in Utah, who have been using those lands for recreating for generation, don't want to be locked out of those lands. And yes, a lot of people like taking the kids out throwing up a tent, and breaking out the BBQ.

      I am smarter, I've lived there.

      How big is your personal carbon footprint?
