I thought the FS had some flexibility to work within a certain width range? At least that is how the new rules are written...
Looks to me that if Evan's was built today that he could allow as wide as 84" and still fall within current FS regulations.
My point would be that it would be best to have Bob as an ally rather than put him in a mood or position that does no one any good. Evans Creek has become a very political "Hot Potato" (remember what event brought about the redo and modifications of some trails). The Mt Baker/Sno Forest is among the "Greenist" of them all.
Ever hear of throwing the baby out with the bath.
