i just want to thank Couch_Surfer and the others who have presented logical arguments here why maybe this isn't something to get all worked up about.
sorry Drew, I don't have time to reply in detail to your post directed to me. but if you honestly believe that the DNV would listen to some of these NGOs, that makes me laugh. DNV mayor and councilors are smart enough to realize that shutting down riding would be political suicide.
i will continue shopping at MEC and i certainly won't feel bad about it. i have had nothing but good experiences with them over the years.
