I cant tell if you just don't get it or you just don't want to get it. Even if REI donates funds and designates that they only be used for a specific issue this still frees up money for WTA (and groups like them)to use in their anti access pursuits. If they were only interested in making improvements to hiking trails I would have no issues with them. Unfortunately this is not the way they are. WTA and others spend a great deal of time and resources trying to eliminate motorized use in the woods. To me this makes them bad guys and I refuse as should you to support them.
Sorry Bryan I know this is your employer but they still donate to groups that are anti access and until they decide that this is wrong and that we all deserve a place in the woods I cant and wont support them and will tell everyone as to why they shouldnt either.
