They should have thought of that when they first built the roads- to extract
timber- the cost of the future maintenance should have come right off the top of
any profits from the timber- and if doing so would have meant no profits then
they should have been intelligent enough to realize that the timber should not
have been cut and the roads not opened up at all. If folks want to camp, hunt
and fish in their National Forests, let'em walk in.
