Mr. Terrance Martin is right,the issue is not whether it’s acceptable to take the babe or grandma and grandpa (oops that’s me) for a hike in the woods, it’s about road access. I also understand Mr. Martin feeling a bit “spooked” and paranoid about being in the bush, most people are.
Of all the forestry related jobs I’ve been involved with over the years, (still active in the field ) one of my all time favorites is planting your way out on a de-activated logging road.It feels great to make an effort to help the forest return itself to its original state. I don’t know if this qualifies me as an “eco-saviour”or not, I thought I was just treeplanting.
Our forests and the wild things that live there need us to create as many eco-systems without the stink and noise of mechanization as humanly possible, otherwise there will be no true wilderness.Life in the bush is not just roaring along on a A.T.V. trail.
