    my cousin’s in-laws own a couple of the snowmobile outfits in west. those fumes get pretty harsh at peak-season – enough to burn your eyes and nostrils just wandering around town.

    it’s outrageous what is allowed at that park

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
