December 17 Meeting with USFS

Dec. 17th at the FS HQ on Rodeo Road in Santa Fe, from 10 am to 11 am.

This is an open meeting but notice please that is planned as just an hour. The idea is to go over A) some other sites we like so the FS can vet them for problems (rare snails, archaeological sites, boy scouts, etc.) well in advance; B) the proposed alternative model (operations plan) that Mark Rey spoke about during the teleconference last week -- so that the process is set in motion in advance of regime change in D.C.; C) to talk briefly about the Inspector General's investigation of the FS Leo relations with the Rainbow; and D) a brief intro between some of our legal team here in NM and the Counsel that the FS uses here [when these lwyrs have met each other in advance in the past it has always proven beneficial]. Those are the topics that have come up so far.

Thanks for all your time and good work, Karin. You probably don't get much feedback, but believe me, you really are appreciated ! Keep up the good work.

I'm especially interested in the LEO situation: How it will be handled in the future, and whatever the outcomes and fallout from the fiasco last summer may be. I had an unpleasant encounter with one creep in particular. (Nothing serious, he was just being extremely a**holeish.)

For what it's worth, I'm retired Forest Service. I've wanted to go to a Gathering for years, but last year was the first time I could manage it. Also: I knew John Twiss (recently retired head of law enforcement for the entire forest service) way back when, when he was a mere mortal. His attitude doesn't surprise me: He's VERY short, and has ALWAYS had a Napoleonic attitude.
