How many times have I dreamed of driving one as I watched them on the Gentle Ben TV show or on  Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.  Not much use for them out here in the Pacific Northwest however - unless a team of dogs can be attached to them.

Park planner Fred Herling says the aim is to strike a balance between the desires of airboaters and other visitors such as paddlers and hikers.

Bull. The aim is to impose what some government bureaucrats believe is the appropriate use of the everglades.

Nothing new here. Areas have been protected in several National Parks, such as Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Yosemite to name a few.

I grew up taking camping vacations across the West, in Scouting, etc. My father wanted us to know the great outdoors, for he grew up close to Yellowstone.

When I was stationed in Germany in 1979-1970 I noted how much cleaner the citizens kept their towns, roads, their natural resources.

Upon returning it was the same old USA with empty cans and bottles along our highways, trash every place. We have made much progress, since then.

But remember the group of yahoos, that pushed over a rock in a park in southern Utah a few weeks ago?

I'm going to come down in favor of preserving the wilderness, whenever possible.

Definitely a positive goal: I'm going to come down in favor of preserving the wilderness, whenever possible.

However, recall what one of the actors in this play stated:

The area is no longer "wilderness" and has not been for quite some time. Combine that with the feds desire for expanding their power, and the political pandering by this administration to the environmentalist lobby, this new policy seems less a concern for the Everglades and more a combination of a fed power grab and an expression of Gaia worship imposed by curtailing the people's use of what is supposed to be their own parks.
Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite which I mentioned had some development BEFORE deciding to dial that back, in favor of preservation.

I remember visiting Zion Canyon in summer 1971, and driving my vehicle up part way into the canyon.

Yet about ten years ago, the only vehicles to go into the canyon were natural gas power shuttles. You could ride all the way, get off and walk, etc.

I'm fine with that, and I fret not that it is a fed power grab.
