"Put a worm in water, it will swim.
Put a worm in whiskey, it will drown.

Lots of choices out there for summer or winter.

Flex Tex II sucks. I have a pair, because my original flex tex wore out, and only the "II" was available.

The fact that that many people in that group gave that answer confirms that the survey responses were "steered." What people actually want is shown by where they choose to go and what they choose to...

I think you misunderstand. I'm not talking about the folks here. I'm talking about Schlimmer, Welch, various DEC sources, etc.

There are way too many "all or nothing" views being promulgated on this topic. Surprisingly, a lot of these are coming from "educated" sources who should know better.

This always comes down to: "Can people drive in or not?" If the road were closed, that party would not have been there. Or at least would not have been as loud or big in the "wilderness area."
