nice. I am happy to personally take the blame for every single thing that has gone wrong in the Gunks for the last 10 years. excellent awesome post there. none of this surprises me, of course... : )
As GCC Chair you were deeply disrespectful of landowners and therefore share responsibility for land closures that were a response to that disrespect.
Your post here on gunks.com about how you supported the Gardiner zoning law because it was coercive and that "this is one of the ways these things are done", along with your post on the GCC FB page to "Access all areas" both had a direct impact on the decision of landowners to close their land.
Additionally, as GCC Chair, your steadfast refusal, for years, to talk with any private landowners in the Nears, Bayards, or at Millbrook was another substantive sign of disrespect.
As a consequence of your words and inaction, legal climbing access has been lost in a portion of the Nears and Bayards and will probably be lost for years to come. And additional closures may yet come to pass.
