TOT, you must a lot of fun at parties. I'll bet you're on here so much because no live person will talk with you (I should say listen to you) with you're constant dwelling on all things negative. What a sad way to go through life.

forever wild is another gimmick, NYS traded off a lot of virgin log lots for forests that were already harvested. It is being traded off piece by piece and in the end it is all about the money.

The "Forever Wild" motto worked well in saving the forests and in enhancing the park for the last 100 years. It came in question when the Great Camps were being lost, a rich part of the Adirondack History. Cell towers are another tweak to a vibrant park. Maybe some areas can truly be forever wild and some areas can be up to date with the growing technology. A mix of both can serve the public well.

This one will have to wait for satellite phone service to become the norm and cost effective. It still beats the telegraph.

It would be nice for expanded service in the Adirondacks. Unfortunately, there will never be coverage in the entire park. There are vast areas with no phone lines or commercial power to run these sites. Solar power is not always reliable especially in the winter when there is less daylight. Add to that, the cost of developing a site. Only those areas where it is cost effective and practical will you see expansion.
