      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Fee program segment on OPB's Oregon Field Guide

Recommended Posts

Did anyone catch last night's Oregon Field Guide segment on the NW forest pass and other user fees? I tuned in at the very end and only saw the last five minutes. All I saw were a few people stating their pro/con fee opinions, and basically it was over the issue of double taxation for recreational use of public lands. Nothing was mentioned about how the USFS subsidizes mining, logging and other destructive operations with tax dollars or about how the forest pass program was originally set up, then extended, the concept of a purchase of a pass being regarded as a vote for the program, etc. Just wondering if it even came close ot accurately covering both sides of the issue or if it was mainly public interest fluff.

I saw it a few months ago and thought it was pretty well balanced. Scott Silver was dead on perfect in his segments. When they first aired the show they followed it up with an online forum and chat. The chat was a total joke, but the forum discussions are still there at: http://www.opb.org/programs/ofg/chat/
