We've used up probably 99% of what was once wilderness in this country. This land is as close to pricelessly unreplaceable as anything can be. It is where life continues untouched by human heads, hands, and machines. It is where we can contact the most essential parts of our heritage and find the pristine beauty of the natural world. I suppose that some simply don't see this as being any more important than a blast of a good ride on some fuming, raucous mechanical contraption. In this case, though, we can all rejoice since this proposal protects not only what the orv people and the backcountry bikers want, but also protects this critical piece of the forest as wilderness. I strongly support it. PS: "fuming" does not apply to the backcountry bikers, so y'all stop fuming.
