in case you hadnt known, i work at TRC in the environmental science department. I'm a GIS technician (geographic information system) i work with maps every day. Over the years, i've seen some progress of houses being build around town and i've seen quite a bit of changes where housing are being located. From my observation, it's heading up north / west a bit. There are some going up in the eastern part of maine aswell. It doesnt seem large at first but, in the long run you'll be like "wow, what happened here?"

this summer, two of my buddies and my trails (atv, snowmobile) were cut off by builders and land scapers. Really pisses most of us because its the only best trail we have been riding since we were little.

anyways, all im saying is that i've been seeing lots of clear cutting going on and numerous of buildings being put up along with roads. And i dont even know why i'm talking this in the climate changes thread hehehe. anyways i'm out before i steal this thread, i dont mean any arguements or anything.
now, why would not being able to ride an atv or snowmobile **** you off??

they both use gas/oil which are contributing to the death of this planet.
you should celebrate, in doing your small part, to save the world!!

So if a private land owner does restrict trail use on his property, it is a fairly small matter, since it will all be illegal soon enough.
Sigh....and we haven't even got a chance to move up there yet to enjoy it...

Default We don't drink the Kool Aid up here!

You have to be kidding. Maine, wilderness? Factories? Clear cutting has been restricted to small parcels for many moons now.

Plum Creek doesn't allow 4 wheelers, but if you come up here my man, I could throw you in one of the Jeeps and show you some forest vistas from mountain top tree plantations that will blow your mind.

You can walk and paddle in Henry David Thoreau's footsteps. It begins across the street from my dooryard. I relax each night to the call of the Loons in the cove. And, I live right downtown.

Up here, we have too many mountain springs to drink from. No reason to consume the Kool Aid!
