Alternatives to the ONP Wilderness

MY COMMENTS ON THE OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARKS ALTERNATIVE WILDERNESS PLAN

 Is this a sufficient range of alternatives? “NO”

I’D BE DELIGHTED TO provide further alternative suggestions.

———————————————

 GET OFF THE D.O.I. “KICK PEOPLE OUT OF THE WILDERNESS PROGRAM” AND MOVE FORWARD WITH PROVEN WORLD WIDE SOLUTIONS.

 INDEED, THERE ARE “CIVILIZED” WORLD WIDE SOLUTIONS

SOLUTIONS THAT PROVIDE SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC INCOME, TOURIST OPPORTUNITIES FOR USE AND ENJOYMENT OF PUBLIC LAND AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE WILDERNESS.

—————————————————————————–

WORLD WIDE PUBLIC LAND USE FOR PEOPLE

 PROMOTE TOURISM

 START WITH FULL USE AND ENJOYMENT OF THE NATIONAL PARK LAND, PUBLIC LAND THAT WAS DESIGNATED BY CONGRESS, SPECIFICALLY FOR THE “PLEASURING GROUND” USE AND ENJOYMENT OF 0VER 300 MILLION AMERICAN PEOPLE

PROVIDE USE FOR MIDDLE CLASS WORKING FAMILIES LOCAL AND STATEWIDE (including my 16 grand kids)

PROVIDE USE, FREE ENTRANCE TO THE PARKS FOR LOCAL AND WA STATE FAMILIES

PROVIDE AFFORDABLE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR WORKING FAMILIES.

PROVIDE REASONABLE PRICED FAMILY ACCOMMODATIONS PACKAGES

STOP PROMOTING NATIONAL PARK SWEETHEART DEALS! WOW, ONLY $225.00 a night and you get a free bottle of booze.

 

PROMOTE ONP WORKING “FAMILY DEALS”

KEEP THE 1937 PROMISE FROM PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT  FOR ALL OF THE CHILDREN AND THE OLD FOLKS TOO

GO AHEAD AND KEEP THE OVER PRICED LAKE CRESCENT LODGE FOR VISITING DIGNITARIES AND FEDERAL BIG SHOTS

PROVIDE INEXPENSIVE FAST FOOD ESTABLISHMENT, THEY MAKE MONEY

PROVIDE ONP FREE OR REDUCED COUPONS IN LOCAL NEWSPAPERS FOR SWIMMING ETC.

UNIVERSAL SOLUTION

BUILD ZIP-LINES THROUGH THE WILDERNESS (A CIVILIZED CONCEPT OF UNTRAMMELED USE) THEY ATTRACT TOURISTS AND THEY THEY MAKE MONEY ALL OVER THE WORLD.

UNIVERSAL SOLUTION

BUILD CABLE CARS AND GONDOLAS LIKE THEY HAVE IN EUROPE (A CIVILIZED CONCEPT OF UNTRAMMELED USE)THEY ATTRACT TOURISTS AND THEY THEY MAKE MONEY ALL OVER THE WORLD.

THESE, UNIVERSAL USER FRIENDLY FACILITIES PROVIDE ACCESS FOR THE HANDICAPPED, ELDERLY, SMALL CHILDREN AND THEY ATTRACT TOURISTS AND THEY MAKE MONEY ALL OVER THE ENTIRE CIVILIZED WORLD.

CREATE AND ALLOW HORSEBACK RIDING, BY THE HOUR, LIKE MINNY PETERSON USED TO HAVE BASED ON SOL DUC PROPERTY ETC.IT ATTRACTED TOURISTS AND IT MADE MONEY.

 GET OVER YOUR INCREASED QUOTAS AND REDUCED THE COST FOR CAMPING USE AND ENJOYMENT OF WORKING FAMILIES

ALLOW MORE PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE HIGH COUNTRY (NOT MORE QUOTA RESTRICTED ACCESS)

 PROMOTE RUBBER RAFTING CONCESSIONAIRES’ ON THE RIVERS (A CIVILIZED CONCEPT OF UNTRAMMELED USE)THEY ATTRACT TOURISTS AND MAKE MONEY IN  NATIONAL PARKS IN THE UNITED STATE OF AMERICA

 KEEP THE KAYAKER’S AFLOAT, THEY ATTRACT TOURISTS AND MAKE MONEY IN  NATIONAL PARKS

HORSES BUILT THE TRAILS

The Back Country Horsemen would be a well organized group to network with in our fight to keep the Park accessible for the public’s recreation and enjoyment.  Balancing use and preservation does not look like the current iteration offered by the ONP.

 ——————————————————————————-

Question 2: 

What do you like about the alternatives?

 I DON’T LIKE ANY OF THEM.

 STOP WASTING TAXPAYERS MONEY ON DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR WILDERNESS PROGRAMMED SOLUTIONS TO FIX A 1964 WILDERNESS PLAN THAT IS NOT BROKEN.

 PLAN “A” IS RESTRICTIVE ENOUGH FOR PUBLIC USE AND ENJOYMENT

 LEAVE IT AT THAT.

————————————————————————————-

Question 3: 

Are there specific elements you feel should be changed? If yes, how would you change them?

INDEED,

PROMOTE PEOPLE PROMOTE TOURISM

 I HAVE BEEN AROUND, THE UNITED STATES IN 48 STATES,17 EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, SOUTH AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS.

 THE UNIVERSAL SOLUTIONS ,TOURISTS ATTRACTIONS I MENTION ABOVE, MAKE MONEY, ALL OVER THE ENTIRE WORLD AND THEY WORK!

 STOP WASTING TAXPAYERS MONEY ON DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR WILDERNESS PROGRAMS TO FIX/CHANGE A 1964 WILDERNESS PLAN THAT IS NOT BROKEN.(if the government wants to fix something? fix the trails.)

 THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR CAN’T TAKE CARE OF THE 875,900 THOUSAND WILDERNESS ACRES IT HAS IN THE OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK!

 THEIR ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS?

 LET’S KEEP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WORLD WIDE TOURISTS OUT OF THE WILDERNESS?

 LET’S CLOSE ALL OF THE ROADS, DESTROY THE SHELTERS, CLOSE AND/OR ELIMINATE THE TRAILS, AND WHATEVER IS LEFT?

——————————–

AND WHAT IS LEFT?

 PLENTY, THE 1964 WILDERNESS PLAN, THE ALTERNATIVE WILDERNESS PLAN THAT IS NOT BROKEN

 IT HAS BEEN IN PLACE FOR 50 YEARS

IT DOES NOT NEED AN “UPDATE”, ANYMORE THEN,

THE US CONSTITUTION NEEDS TO BE UPDATED

In accordance with the Wilderness Act of 1964, the goal of this wilderness stewardship plan is to restore, protect and enhance the overall wilderness character of the wilderness area within Olympic National Park”

 THERE ARE 875,900 THOUSAND WILDERNESS ACRES IN THE OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK.

 THE BOTTOM LINE ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

 GET OFF OF THE WILDERNESS KICK, MOVE FORWARD WITH WORLD WIDE SOLUTIONS, IN THIS COUNTRY, THE U.S.A, THAT PROVIDE SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC INCOME, TOURIST OPPORTUNITIES FOR USE AND ENJOYMENT AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT.

LEAVE THE 313 MILLION AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WORLD WIDE TOURISTS IN THE ONP WILDERNESS USE EQUATION.

 STOP CREATING MORE RESTRICTED USE AND MORE OPPRESSIVE PUBLIC ENJOYMENT RESTRICTIONS

 PLAN A IS THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE ALTERNATIVE.
