Sounds like a group of "free thinking" Americans! I can almost picture the color of hat they were wearing.

That's definitely intentional.

I don't get it. Seems just like pipe dreaming. Do you have the actual ideas on how this could work in reality? Do you have the means to purchase the property and make it happen?

I wonder if we can get Mr. Marylou to take this and sell it to Jack Ma for us?

Back to the idea of a private owner allowing public access:

Yes, it's been done before and it's actually awesome i.e. BREIA. But I'm not sure BREIA makes any money except through grants, so I'm...

I have not, but I don't want to drift the thread too much. And perhaps that's a little extreme for my paddling pace LOL.

No, but what I'm saying is, you are most certainly going to give up that protection with a private individual over a state wilderness.

This property is a prime wilderness paddling connector, as...

Your first post was VERY myopic - "MY MONEY being spent to turn it into a mud pit". Kind of severe, don't ya think? Sounds like Fox News to me.

So umm do you bushwhack, ski and climb on Jack Ma's land, or on the forest preserve?

It's really odd to me so many people on this forum voice this opinion, like you do, but then don't think twice...

Apparently you haven't really been to many wilderness areas in the Adirondacks and seen all the junk left over from 70 years prior when they were owned by private individuals.
